Its awesome. Those of you in MN know what I am talking about. I prefer the Furious above all others but have heard many of my friends who like Bender. And now the 16-grit is on tap around town which just adds to the greatness. Am I off my rocker or do any of you agree? Thoughts?

I have heard their beers are great - never had the pleasure. Come late May I will be in IA and looking for Furious specifically.

I hope you're not off your rocker.. I'm about to brew up a Furious clone and I'm really looking forward to how it comes out. I've only heard good things about Surly. Too bad they don't ship to NY, I'd like to try some.

I got toasted on 16-grit at brewfest in superior, wi a couple weeks ago. Good stuff, alcohol content a bit much for heavy drinking at 4pm though .

Dougan-Ive been to that brewfest a few times and I think you were the only person worried about the alcohol content at that place. My experience has shown that everyone at that place is there to get hammered.

dap-If the clone you are talking about is Ferocious from Midwest you wont be disapointed. My roomate brewed up the extract kit of that and it was pretty close. It was develped with help of the Surly brewers.

As a fellow Minnesotan, I too can attest that Surly makes great beer. And for those that don't know, they can in pints.

Same company from what I understand. The beer is in a can so it is easier to carry along while biking .

I just got back from Minneapolis today. We didn't make it to Surly, but we did hit Barley John's.
