Brooklyn Center OKs taproom at Surly Brewing

The Brooklyn Center City Council this week voted to approve a license for a full-blown taproom for the Surly Brewery, the Star Tribune reports.

The action paves the way for the brewery, which now has just a modest tasting room, to sell its own product by the glass on-site.

It's been a long time coming for the brewery, which fought at the legislature for approval to open a taproom as part of a measure that became known as the Surly Bill.

Separately, Surly has paid $1.8 million for the site of its planned “destination brewery.” That 8.3-acre site is in the Prospect Park area of Minneapolis, where Surly plans a $20 million bar, restaurant, beer garden and event center.
