BEER LIST
Furious
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.6%
IBUs: 100
# Ratings: 112,069

Like Hops? You’ll like this fire-hued beer. This is the beer I have always dreamed of making. This is the beer that would come to mind while spending the last two years tearing down walls, hanging sheetrock, moving kegs, power washing the ceilings, arguing with various agencies, and cutting the water main. Without Golden Promise malt, made by family-owned Simpsons Malt, Furious would just be pissed offed. From Scotland, this malt is still produced in the tradition of turning over the barley by hand, resulting in a malt that is unsurpassed in its quality. Golden Promise is also used extensively by premium whisky distilleries such as The Macallan. This malt provides the backbone for the intense hop character. Four American hop varieties are used at a rate of over three pounds per barrel. The result is a rich malt sweetness infused with bright hop flavor and aroma from beginning to end. Oh yeah, it’s about 6% alcohol and around 100 IBUs.
Todd - The Axe Man (Surly Release)
Style: IPA - American

English: For quite some time the Amager crew has been discussing this question: which person is the most rock’n’roll in the whole craft beer world - is it Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds or is it Todd Haug of Surly Brewing? In the end it wasn’t really all that difficult to decide since only Todd has played for Laura Dern in a David Lynch movie (yeah, Nicolas Cage was in that same movie, but since when did he count?) AND Todd plays the guitar in both a speed metal band and a stoner band. Add to that that Todd and his wife Linda are some of the nicest people to hang out with. So Todd, here’s to you: "Todd - The Axe Man" - a potent IPA loaded with fresh American aroma hops on a base of rich Golden Promise malt, Surly’s signature malt. Raise a glass to Todd, world class brewer - and master of the axe! Bonus facts about Todd: yes, he DID actually have a perm in his younger days (his wife confirms) and he does indeed love cats an awful lot.
Xtra-Citra
Style: Pale Ale - American
ABV: 4.5%

Score: 3.77
You'd think hops in the bright sunshine would make us happy, but you'd be wrong. This bright colored session ale Xplodes with Citra hop flavor and aroma, in a deliciously drinkable brew.
Darkness (2018)
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.75
Our massive Russian Imperial Stout contains waves of chocolate, coffee, cherry, raisin, and toffee, plus a non-traditional dose of aromatic hops.
Darkness 2018--Fernet Variant
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.50
Tattersall’s fernet uses over 30 botanicals, spices, and herbs to arrive at its complex flavor profile, which can be roughly described as a <em>very</em> highly aromatic black licorice/anise. Paired with the traditional Darkness profile (cherry, chocolate, coffee, raisin, and toffee), it's as close to a digestif version of our Russian imperial stout as you’re likely to find.
Darkness (2017) Barrel-Aged
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.25
This massive Russian Imperial Stout brings waves of flavors; chocolate, cherries, raisins, coffee, and toffee. Barrel-Aged Darkness is a limited edition variant that spent over three months aging in Woodford Reserve Rye Whiskey barrels. The aging process provides a distinct aromatic whiskey character that is oaky and spicy on top of the core Darkness flavors.

Darkness (2019) Barrel-Aged
Style: Stout - Russian Imperial
ABV: 12.0%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.50
Darkness is a beer of fable and legend. Malty and intense, yet velvety smooth. This special edition of our massive Russian imperial stout matured in rye whiskey barrels and brings waves of chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, and cherry flavors, enhanced by the oak and spice of the barrel.
One Man Mosh Pit
Style: IPA - New England
ABV: 7.2%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.50
An absurd dose of Amarillo, Citra, and Mosaic dry-hopping hoists this IPA above the fray. Juicy and hazy, it’s the perfect soundtrack to the music in your head. Running in a circle and shoving yourself optional.
Haze Me Up Before You Go Go
Style: IPA - Session / India Session Ale
ABV: 4.7%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.00
This easy-drinking ale delivers the fruit-forward hop flavor and round mouthfeel of a hazy IPA, but with a light body and sessionable strength. George Michael would approve. (Andrew Ridgeley was unavailable for comment.)
Coffee Bender
Style: Brown Ale - American
ABV: 5.1%
# Ratings: 46,690
Score: 3.93
This beer is our regular Bender beer with a cold-press coffee-brewing process. We steep 20 gallons at a time, so this beer will pop up at Tours, beer fests and special tappings. The coffee is roasted locally at Coffee & Tea Limited in Linden Hills.
Hell
Style: Lager - Helles
ABV: 5.0%
IBUs: 20
# Ratings: 42,597
Score: 3.56
Finally, a Surly beer my German mother will drink. She says this one tastes like a bier from back home. Not unlike a Zwickel Bier from Germany, Hell is not filtered and fermented with lager yeast, American hops takes a back seat to the Pils malt sweetness and fresh bread aroma. The color is well... hell (Deutsch for light). It’s fiendishly drinkable, and you don’t have to sell your soul to get another.
Abrasive Ale
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double
ABV: 9.2%
IBUs: 100
# Ratings: 40,941
Score: 4.24
A massive dose of Citra hops launch our legendary double IPA (Minnesota’s first, and a nod to our abrasives factory origin) into the hophead stratosphere.
Bender
Style: Brown Ale - American
ABV: 5.1%
IBUs: 25
# Ratings: 27,157
Score: 3.75
This beer is an amalgamation of styles; brown/porter/APA. Five distinct malts, including two from Belgium, give this beer added complexity and depth. We also add oatmeal to this beer to give it a smooth texture not usually associated with this type of beer. We add large amounts of American finishing hops to give Bender a citrus hop aroma because... we like hops. This is a session beer weighing in around 5% alcohol and 25 IBUs. Grab one today, we think you will want another!
Cynic
Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 6.5%
IBUs: 33
# Ratings: 25,606
Score: 3.68
Oh great, a fizzy yellow beer in a can, that's just what the craft beer world needs! CynicAle melds Old World ingredients in a new school style. French malted barley, English oats and Belgian yeast create honey & black pepper flavors. Lively Slovenian hops provide the floral, apricot and peach notes. Toss your doubts away, toss one back and enjoy!
Blakkr (Surly Release)
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double Black
ABV: 9.99%
IBUs: 85
# Ratings: 19,582
Score: 4.09
This double black as night IPA is too massive for just one brewery's efforts. BLAKKR took the trinity of Real Ale Brewing Co., Surly Brewing Co. and Three Floyds Brewing Co. to actualize this crushing ale. This Imperial Black IPA has flavors of black licorice and bitter sweet hop aromas of pineapple.
SurlyFest
Style: Märzen
ABV: 6.0%

When we say we don’t brew to style, we mean it: Our Oktoberfest beer is a dry-hopped rye lager with an earthy, biscuity flavor profile. Prost! Kind of!
Cacao Bender
Style: Brown Ale - American
ABV: 5.5%
IBUs: 45
# Ratings: 16,188
Score: 4.02
Our oatmeal brown ale gets aged on cacao nibs and vanilla (beans, not extract) and finished with cold press coffee, yielding a lush, cappuccino-like creaminess. Also, it’s pronounced ka-COW.
Damien
Style: IPA - Black / Cascadian Dark Ale
ABV: 6.6%
# Ratings: 15,591
Score: 3.83
From the blackest depths of the brewhouse comes Damien, Child of Darkness. Spawned from the usually discarded remnants of Darkness, Damien is a dry-hopped black ale. Flavors of roasted malt and dark brown sugar suffocated by aromas of tangerine and pine.

#MERICA! is a pre-Prohibition American Lager with soft hops aromatics that is brewed with flaked corn, giving it a light–bodied subtle fresh corn flavor.#MERICA! is a pre-Prohibition American Lager with soft hops aromatics that is brewed with flaked corn, giving it a light–bodied subtle fresh corn flavor.
Wet (2017)
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 6.1%

Our wet-hopped pale ale returns. Fresh-picked Mosaic hops, straight outta Yakima, pack a dank, tropical wallop, with notes of tangerine, papaya, and grass.
Doomtree
Style: Extra Special / Strong Bitter
ABV: 5.7%
# Ratings: 10,956
Score: 3.61
Surly started with homebrewing in the garage. Doomtree making some noise a basement. Careful what you do in your spare time, man. That stuff just might end up taking over your whole life. A decade later, Doomtree meets Surly. Instant crush. We’re both indie and strong-willed. We love Minnesota and we are allergic to focus groups. We don’t have a formal professional outfit between us. We convene at the brewery to scheme. Working in extreme secrecy, we decide to make a beer. Team Surly suggests a “bastardized style” that will build on the classic, but buck convention. Doomtree cannot nod vigorously enough. We know this style. Guided by instinct, we came up with this dark, gold, toasty aromatic, subtly spicy, bitter enough, dry-hopped brew. Best enjoy it cold in a spare room with new friends
Smoke
Style: Smoked Beer
ABV: 8.2%
IBUs: 50
# Ratings: 10,311
Score: 3.85
Ebony-hued, Smoke wafts out of the bottle and into your senses, borne on the wings of European traditions, wrapped in American innovation. Lager-brewed, like any true Baltic Porter, with smoked malts from Bamberg, Germany, the home of Rauchbiers, then mellowed by oak-aging. Black malt flavors mesh with notes of raisins, plums, figs and licorice with the subtle smoke on the side, for a complex and luxurious, yet silky smooth drinking experience. It's a sipper at Alc. 8.2% by VOL., but everyone knows you can't have Smoke without fire!
Ten
Style: Old Ale
ABV: 9.5%
IBUs: 63
# Ratings: 9,667
Score: 3.97
Brewed with pale ale, crystal malts, invert sugar and aged on toasted sassafras, this celebratory Old Ale is meant for sharing. Amber in color with aged flavors of toffee, sherry and vanilla-sassafras, finishing with a warming full-bodied swallow.
Bitter Brewer
Style: English Bitter
ABV: 4.1%
IBUs: 37
# Ratings: 8,327
Score: 3.53
Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach, orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.
Brett Mikkel's IPA
Style: IPA - Belgian
ABV: 7.5%
IBUs: 80
# Ratings: 8,326
Score: 3.72
Light-bodied and dry, the combo of Brett and hop varieties offers earthy notes that are quickly overwhelmed by aromas of bubblegum, tropical, and candied fruits. Brewed with Mikkel from Mikkeller.
Nein
Style: Smoked Beer
ABV: 10.0%
# Ratings: 7,862
Score: 3.85
Inspired by a recent trip to Bamberg, Germany. NEIN is brewed with oak-smoked wheat malt, fermented with German Hefe yeast and aged on charred oak. It's a huge, complex, dark beer, delivering the intense flavors of smoked banana, vanilla and clove

26 months of barrel-aging (18 in red wine, eight in rye whiskey) amplify Pentagram’s intense sour cherry, tobacco, oak, and Brett notes.

Rising North

Score: 3.71
WE COME FROM THE NORTH. The winter months take their toll. It can make a person . . . well, Surly. Still, we rise. And when the North rises, the North gets thirsty. This American Pale Ale was brewed to satisfy that thirst. Featuring bright, citrusy hops and a warming malt base, this is the official beer of Minnesota United. On match day, or any other… Forever United, together we rise.
Misanthrope
Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 6.8%
# Ratings: 6,383
Score: 3.88
This Belgian-style saison ale is aged in oak barrels with Brettanomyces. Golden in color, it has notes of tropical fruit wrapped in an oaky horse blanket, and, you know, other stuff that combine to produce blah blah blah to create blah and etc. It is best served cool and enjoyed alone or with a tolerated companion.
