(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.
A region formerly best known for old-school martinis continues to expand its craft-beer prowess—and a brewery that’s not even a year old is, in many ways, leading the way by offering small-batch offerings, tap-room special releases and seasonal farm-to-glass brews.
