Surly Brewing Co. | National Beer Day


It’s National Beer Day and long past due for me to come out of semi hiatus,┬áso it made perfect sense for me to finally share my review of the Surly Brewing Tap Room!



I have a hard on for Stouts lately. I used to always be that person who said they “don’t like dark beer,” but to this day I have not had one stout that I did not like. Sure, sometimes they’re a little heavy and you can’t have more than 1 (or maybe 2…), but they’re always delicious and full of flavor. If you feel the same or are ready to take the leap and try out a stout, I highly recommend the Surly Darkness.

“This massive Russian Imperial Stout brings waves of flavors; chocolate, cherries, raisins, coffee, and toffee, finishing with a non-traditional dose of aroma hops.”

Inside it’s a pretty big place full of family style picnic tables, the typical warehouse vibe of breweries, and cute lighting. There’s also a patio area with some lawn games and additional seating.

You can also reserve the upstairs are for private parties, which I have no idea how much that would cost, but a Groom’s Dinner, Birthday Party, or even Wedding Reception at a Brewery is definitely right up my ally!



There were a LOT of people, but the servers were very good about going through the line as quickly as possible. It helps that they have a “Beer Here” order location so that you don’t have to try and mash your body between people to wave them down.


There is a lot and some street parking. We had to park in the overflow, because it was packed, so definitely prepare to have to hoof it a little bit in the summer when the patio is sure to be packed!

Overall, I’m a fan of Surly and their taproom/beer hall & restaurant is a place I’d like to check out in the warmer months for the patio!
