Surly Tap Takeover & Artist Meet & Greet
1400 Lagoon Avenue, Minneapolis // 6pm
Uptown Tavern will be tapping 14 Surly beers including both 2012 and 2013 Darkness and other rare options. Even cooler—they’ll have all seven of the Darkness artists on hand to sign bottles, shirts, your butt, and more!
1430 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis // 5pm
Yes, I know your friends who loooooved Seinfeld hold a Festivus party every year complete with ugly sweaters (nobody’s ever thought of that one before) and a crappy gift exchange full of ironic hipster mall junk. Forget that noise. Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery’s Festivus is the only one in town worth your time. Sample this year’s Festivus beer (an imperial witbier) as well as other holiday specials like Grinch’s Grog, Elves Elixir, and mulled beer and wine on their patio. Don’t miss this!
