Surly Brewing Company
Beer Count: 387
Description: Surly Brewing Co. started with a homebrewing kit in Omar Ansari’s garage. As his brewing passion grew, Omar converted his family’s abrasives manufacturing business into a brewery in late 2004 after convincing Todd Haug, an industry veteran, to join him as Surly’s head brewer. Since selling its first keg in February 2006, Surly has become one of the nation’s fastest growing breweries. Surly is currently planning a Destination Brewery, complete with a restaurant and beer garden, after successfully leading the charge in 2011 to change a Prohibition-era Minnesota state law.
