“Beer for a glass. From a Can.”

Located in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Surley Brewing Company has some of the best single beer names around. The “Bender,” for example, is Surley’s session beer – an oatmeal brown ale that “defies traditional categories” because it blends both Belgian and English malts. Their “Furious” is filled with hop-fire, while the “Cynic” challenges notions that light American brews are devoid of flavor.

Surley also brews seasonal favorites. “Surleyfest” is a rye larger available through September. SeriousEats recently met with the brewer, Todd Haug, producing a highly recommended exchange.
