Surly's First Ave-inspired beer hits store shelves this week

The golden ale will be available beginning Monday.
Author:

Back in February, just days after Surly beers were removed from all Sun Country flights, the Minnesota brewery announced a new partnership with a Minnesota-born company: First Avenue. 

The brewmasters at Surly worked with First Ave. to come up with a beer that they believe is perfect for the concertgoer, and they're calling it "+1."

Surly +1 is a light-bodied golden ale that will be available to everyone in 16 oz. four-packs beginning the week of April 2. 

Some people have already tried it, but only those who attened a trio of concerts hosted by First Avenue clubs last week. 

  • March 22 at 7th St Entry (Sick of it All with Holdin On)
  • March 23 at First Avenue (The Black Angels with Black Lips)
  • March 24 at Turf Club (The Last Revel with Chicago Farmer)

While the beer is probably really good, the artwork on the can looks amazing.
