Great beer, good bar. The tour is great. Not too long, informative and interesting. And you get to try three different beers, plus a fourth one at the bar included, and you get a souvenir glass to take home. The food from the food truck is good too, I had the pork sandwich and it was delicious. Get there somewhat... More

Surly's got the craft beer with good bonanza started in Minnesota and they deliver. The brew pub located near the University of Minnesota Stadium Village on the East Bank, has become a destination. Come for the beer, stay for the food. You can't go wrong.

Boy, Surly made a statement when they moved to their new location in MPLS. It's small enough to stay in the micro/craft brew class, but big enough to serve their purpose which appears to be providing a showcase for an impressive line-up of quality craft beers, a strong food menu, and an impressive facility. From the moment you turn the... More

My husband and I ate lunch at Surly in Minneapolis. The food and service were great!! Our waitress did a great job of recommended a Surly beer for each of us based on our tastes. We also took the tour which was wonderful! We had two great tour guides who were very informative about the history of Surly and the... More

I've visited the Surly Brewing Co. a couple of times now and this is my impression: Atmosphere: VERY high ceilings, long family-style tables and a constantly packed house can make for a loud experience, albeit a fun one. I would not recommend this for a romantic night out or a place where serious conversation needs to happen, rather it is... More

A friend and I popped in to the new tap room in Minneapolis (no Trip Advisor page on this different location) on Monday night night and were immediately seated at one of the long tables being shared with other parties. I was happy to be seated at a table with chairs rather than back-less benches though! It's pretty awesome to... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon a couple of weeks after it opened. There was a line to get it but it moved very fast and the bouncers were aware of the cold so they moved us quickly into the building (thanks!). The facility is impressive - it's wide open "beer hall" type setting with a 2nd level that overlooks the... More

Visited Sunday evening 1/4; beautiful warehouse facility and friendly wait staff. Chances are you will be sharing your long table with other people, but that's doesn't seem to be that big of a deal. The beer is of course wonderful and reasonably priced and the food was tasty. Prices for food seemed quite high relative to the market. Again, the... More

We were extremely excited to check this place out, really hoping that it would be a great place to frequent. Unfortunately, the only great thing about the new Surly facility is the beer. The new place is very large and industrial much like a convention center. The lighting is harsh, much like you'd expect in in a public bathroom. The... More

I love Surly beer. Eagerly awaited the new tap room. Went today for lunch. For $18 got one piece of bread and an extremely small amount of pulled pork, and beans. Quality was food but either cut price in 1/2 or double serving. I planned on going weekly because it is on bike path but will not return.
