I tried some Surly Furious at a Mad Zymurgist meeting. One of our members brought some back from a business trip.

I would kill to have that here in California.
With that said, future plans include a Furious Inspired brew.

It is! I'm really looking forward to brewing it. It has all of the hop combos I've wanted to make my own recipe from. Hopefully this comes out great and I have some inspiration for my first AG brew in the future.

Next time hit up Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery. It's located at Seven Corners near the U of M Campus.

I'm in Minn and if somebody wanted to do a little trade I'd be willing to send some "live yeast samples" you direction.

I debated not posting this, since most people will disagree but I live within 30 minutes of the brewery and haven't been too impressed with it yet.

I think they make fine beers but the loyalty they've acquired so fast just blows my mind. I do drink their stuff...quite happily, but my point is that the awesome bar I go to has over 50 craft beers on tap and I'd prefer to try something new.

Like I said, I do like their beer, I just think a lot of people try their beer because of the perception of "hipness" and then they don't try new stuff. It's the PBR Tallboy for people with taste. I'm just not that big of fan of skinny jean hipsters :P

I do think we're pretty set with awesome breweries here in the Twin Cities. Between Surly, Summit and Flat Earth Brewing (one of my favorites) we always have an interesting choice of local brew.

I very much agree. We have a friend that is all Surly and would take a bullet for them etc but has no real reason why. The tour is fun and the beer isn't bad but it never hurts to expand your horizons as well.

What is exciting is this friend just got a home brew kit for the holidays and is getting ready to brew his first - you can just see the excitement. Of course he is already looking at 10 bbl systems online and wanting to expand.......

I think Surly is great. If I could get Furious and Coffee Bender here I would drink it by the metric **** ton.

I've only had the pleasure of Furious and Darkness, and IMO they are both great beers. Furious is a nice strong over hopped IPA, and Darkness might be the best RIS I've ever had. Probably the most drinkable at least.
