“Surly wants to sell pints of its beer in the planned restaurant and beer garden. Minnesota statute doesn’t allow breweries with an annual production above 3500 barrels to sell beer directly to consumers. Sales for on-site consumption are prohibited for all non-brewpub breweries. In order for Surly to fulfill its dream, the statute has to be amended. The brewery is working with state lawmakers to do just that, and it’s asking fans to help.”
