So the current location will remain but their new operation will be moving soon to St Paul (Wah!) I recommend taking the tour (it has been a year or so since I took it so please don't rag on me if things have changed!) But you have to order tickets to get into the tour...It is free - but you...

Surly brews are well-known in the Twin Cities and the brewery is expanding to another site in the Minneapolis to vastly expand production. The brewery in Brooklyn Center is the original brewery and offers a fun time that doesn't need to be pre-planned. You can walk right in and grab a beer. I recommend coming an hour early and getting... More

The current tap room and brewery has character and provides various amenities for customers whether it is watching the game after a tour, relaxing with friends, playing games outside, eating from the food truck or just getting to know their customers, the brewery has it all covered! If that wasn't enough, the brewery will be expanding in the near future... More

Getting a spot on this very popular brewery tour is the most difficult part of this experience. You have to keep a vigilant eye on the availability (via their website) to score a spot on the tour. Once you're there, it's well worth the effort. Plenty of opportunity to sample the excellent craft beer.

I would go here again for the tap room - there are a ton of good beers on tap and the guys pouring the beer are really nice - if you aren't sure about your choice they offer up advice and samples. Like a few people have mentioned there is a food truck available for lunch outside (yum), plus you... More

This is the best beer in the Twin Cities, possibly tied with Dangerous Man. Surly does really good stuff, I like almost everything they brew. Some people like Surly just because its Surly, but this is truly good beer.

We love visiting the tap room and trying brews that aren't available any place else. It is sad they are moving because the current location is so close to home, but it sounds like the new place will be great and will allow them to possibly can more varieties (please can cacao bender!!).

Given Surly paved the way for local brewers and tap rooms in Minnesota, I felt obligated to give it a shot. The tap room is nice; there is sufficient standing room and seating areas, and there is a nice shop next to the tap room. All of the Surly beers were available on tap as were several special features and... More

Our family went for the tour and found it to be pretty average as far as brewery tours go. The tap room was fine. The tour was confined to a fairly small area where you could not see much and over time seemed to be a lot of talking and not much seeing. Worth a visit if you are interested... More
