No Sunday funday at Surly taproom

Just a week after announcing they would expand their tasting room into a full-blown taproom at their Brooklyn Center facility, Surly Brewing has already been forced to cut back on their hours of operation. 

Originally the brewery planned to make their Sunday taproom hours from noon until 8:00 p.m., but on Monday afternoon they issued the following tweet.


Further explanation revealed that a special use permit and City Council resolution were adopted that outlined the legally allowed hours and days of sale for liquor, but that the current State Law supersedes the approval from the city of Brooklyn Center. 

The taproom will now be open Thursdays and Fridays from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays from noon until 9:00 p.m.

Yet another dumb idiotic blue law from 1930. Gee I wonder why I moved to Nevada?

Time to write a letter to all your local politicians. DO IT! These antiquated blue laws need to go!

I love the liquor lobby's biggest reason to not allow Sunday sales: Their employees need a day off. So ridiculous!

Is rather crazy that the tap rooms can't open on Sunday just because they don't serve food.

The only way to make these out of date laws change is with consumers taking action and working together to overcome lobby influence.

It's funny how people throughout the Twin Cities think our city and metro are progressive like Seattle, Portland, and Denver.   Unfortunately for Minnesoduh most of its progressives have moved to these areas and now we are stuck even further behind.

No liquor sales on Sunday. Some freedom, isn't it?

And this isn't based on outdated religious preference or the power of liquor store/bar lobbies?  We need to stop with laws that simply limit personal freedoms. Why would drinking beer on a Sunday be any different than a Tuesday? Are we still under the impression Religions are not Businesses too?
