Surly one step closer to Minneapolis site


The Metropolitan Council awarded Surly Brewing Co. a $545,300 grant to assist with the environmental cleanup at an industrial site in southeast Minneapolis, the Star Tribune reports.

The Brooklyn Center-based brewery says the grant is one of three it needs to eventually build a $20 million brewery, bar, event center and beer garden.

The company is seeking a total of $2.5 million just to cleanup the site. The largest amount has been requested from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development for $1.5 million. A decision should come this week.

Surly has also asked Hennepin County for $450,000. The Star Tribune says board is not expected to vote until Jan. 29, but will likely get the green light.
