Not a very good pic, but I'm enjoying a glass of my winter ale. It's a toasty 7.7% ABV. Very yummy.

Cheers

Surly's distro is insanely small, Twin Cities metro only, and even that's a stretch. Hard to find in the outer south burbs (Brewery's north burbs) and in St. Cloud, about 40 miles away from the brewery, none.

Bittered with worrior, finish is all citra, awesome too, they push that hop to the limit. Huge citrus and tropical fruit nose, some catty aroma too. The added malt and mouthfeel come from oats.

From Surly's site:

Abrasive Ale, AKA 16 Grit, D.V.D.A.
We brewed this beer originally at the end of 2008 as a farewell to growler sales. As usual, we underestimated the demand for the first Double IPA in Minnesota. We brewed the beer again in the spring and released it as a draft only beer. It was originally called 16 Grit, a size of abrasive grit used at the old Abrasive factory that once stood where the brewery now resides.
STYLE: Double Oat IPA
MALT: 2-Row, Golden Promise, Oats, Lite Crystal
SUGAR: Brewers Crystals
HOPS: Warrior, Citra
YEAST: English Ale

OG: 19.5° Plato
ABV: 8.8% v/v
COLOR: 8 şSRM
IBU: 120ish
AVAILABILITY: Late December-March
The "English ale" yeast is Brit II, Wy 1335. The availability this year is late Nov-Feb

Think I may have to have one next now.

Mother in law gave me two bottles for Xmas. One's gonna get cellared for a couple years (might try and do a vertical tasting in a few years). But this is quite tasty.

BLASPHEMY!! I went for an Abrasive, but the only canned beer was Heady which I'm saving for an upcoming tasting with friends. So I went for this.

This is a solid brew, no Abrasive, but it's one of the better year 'round IPAs here for sure.

Is that one of the ones that Firestone Walker makes, or do they only make the TJ's Mission Street offerings?

I know this one's Unibroue (hence why it's always so good). I know some of the others are FW, I know some are Gordon Biersch. I don't recall which ones are which, or if there are any other breweries doing any.

I only know the Missions are FW. Not bad either. I haven't had any of the others, but I'm guessing if it's Uni, it's good $hit. I need to get over to TJ's more.

The Vintage ales are Unibroue, the german style beers are GB, the mission is FW, the spotted cow and fat weasel are also FW. Curious who does the corona style beer, and the light lagers in cans.

Still had the signature Unibroue yeast character, with a bit of a stone fruit taste on the finish.
