It’s been a little over 10 years since Omar Ansari helped Todd Haug brew the very first batch of Surly beer, on New Year’s Eve 2005.
To celebrate their decade-long ride, the Surly crew is releasing their tenth anniversary beer, TEN. Brewed with pale crystal malts, invert sugar, and aged on toasted sassafras, it’s an Old Ale meant for sharing.
Amber in color with aged flavors of toffee, sherry, and vanilla sassafras, and finishing with a warming full-bodied swallow, TEN will hit shelves at the end of the month.
What’s more, 10 beers will be at 10 parties in 10 locations for 10 days across Minnesota, Iowa, Chicago, and Wisconsin. Every party will have a bunch of rare Surly on tap, including TEN ale.
