Four and a half years and over $30 million dollars in the making, the Surly Destination Brewery finally opens at 11 a.m. today. This day has been courteously dubbed Surly Brewing Day by the city of Minneapolis, which is (understandably) proud to host the popular brewery that opened in Brooklyn Center in 2006 and has now moved into a larger, more ambitious space within the city limits.
The space is wide open, with community seating and a large bar containing three tap stations and space for 18 different beers, though they will open with 12. The seating is primarily community tables that allow strangers to engage in conversation, but there are four- and six-seat tables that give personal space as well. In addition to the beer lineup, Surly will serve sodas, coffee, and local tea, with plans for house-made sodas in the future.
There is also a pretty killer menu.More »
