Surly is releasing a new beer this weekend in honor of the Minnesota United

There's a pregame party Sunday – and you could get a free beer.

Surly brewed a beer for Minnesota United.

Minnesota's Major League Soccer team will play its inaugural home opener Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium, and to celebrate there will be an official pregame party down the street at Surly's Minneapolis brewery, starting at 11 a.m.

"When you get new neighbors, you want to do something nice for them," Omar Ansari, owner and founder of Surly Brewing, said in a statement.

That something nice is a beer just for them. It's called United Crushers Pale Ale, which is described as an easy-drinking American pale ale that's dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria, Eureka, and Chinook hoops, which will give it some tropical, grapefruit and piney flavors.

It'll be released for Sunday's pregame, and will also be available on game days at TCF Bank Stadium.

"Surly is a fantastic local brewery with a long track record of creativity and collaboration when it comes to beer making," MNUFC President Nick Rogers said in a statement. "We’re proud that they’re honoring our arrival in MLS with Surly United Crushers and thrilled to be offering it at home matches throughout the season."

If you plan on attending the pregame party, it's worth noting that anyone dressed in soccer gear gets a free beer.

The party will also feature live music in the beer garden, new merchandise, a big tent, and a "spirited march to the stadium" (after all, there is no tailgating at TCF Bank Stadium this year).

Kick-off for the Minnesota United vs. Atlanta United FC game is at 4 p.m. For more information, click here.
