(Brooklyn Center, MN) – The latest from Surly Brewing Company, courtesy of their email blast:

Construction of our new Destination Brewery has been going well, when it’s been going. The record low temperatures have slowed things down a bit, since machines won’t run in sub-zero temperatures. Thankfully, the winter-hardened construction crew will work in weather that would kill most folks. They’ve been busy pouring concrete footings and foundations and then covering that concrete with insulated blankets so it will cure (seriously). So we’re still on track to open the new brewery and turn on the Beer Making Machine at the end of 2014. In the meantime, you can see the brewery construction progress via our Construction Camera.

It’s not a band name–we’re releasing two of our seasonal beers, Pentagram and Schadenfreude soon. The release party for Pentagram, our 100% Brettanomyces Dark Ale is on Friday, May 9 at 4pm at Amsterdam Bar in St. Paul, as part of the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild’s “10,000 Minutes of Minnesota Craft Beer,” Minnesota’s statewide craft beer week May 5-11.

Schadenfreude, our Munich Dunkel Lager, will be released on Monday, April 18 at Old Chicago locations around the Twin Cities metro area. We’re still nailing down details, so keep an eye on the interwebs for specific locations, times, etc.

Watch our Events page and Facebook page for more upcoming events and details.

About Pentagram:
Pentagram is a 100% Brettanomyces Dark beer fermented in stainless and aged in used red wine barrels. “Brett” is a unique yeast strain that produces flavors that would be considered offensive if they were not intentional. Flavors of sour cherry, tobacco, oak and classic “Brett” barnyard funk balanced by Dark Munich malt chewiness. Enjoy immediately or age at cellar temperature for a couple years.

About Schadenfreude:
Schadenfreude is a German word for shameful joy, taking pleasure in the suffering of others. Utilizing German Munich, Vienna and Caramunich malts, this dark (Dunkel) lager has rich bread and toffee flavors balanced by a soft bitterness. Additional aging on toasted Minnesota oak makes Schadenfreude a one of a kind Dunkel.
