Eminently flavorful and forehead-crushable beers...in cans.
'Surly' on Serious Eats
Brown ales are known for smooth, easy drinking; made for quaffing pint after pint at your local. We sample some in that traditional style from all around the States, but also tried a few brews where American ingenuity has been applied with plenty of impact and success.
I've been a fan of Surly Brewing Co. ever since my friend Lee of Hoptopia gave me one of his precious cans of Furious, an intensely brisk IPA with some rich Scottish malt thrown into the mix. (Thanks, Lee.) Who's behind this awesome Minnesota beer? A rock star. Literally.
