Amusement park brewery. Came up to see the Hold Steady drink beer and tour the area on bicycles. Great variety of tasty beers and numerous food options. Pizza was so so but who cares as it soaked up the beer to make room for more...More

A truly amazing place to eat! This is almost a tourist destination and normally they don't have good food, BUT this place does! This brewery is amazing! Outdoor eating, awesome food and desserts, outdoor fire pits, outdoor sitting, pizza and the best beer!

This was one of two breweries i really wanted to make sure I got to see during my visit to MSP. Great draft list, some bottle options including aged Darkness. The sausage tray ended up a highlight - don't skip that when here for beers.

Surly has been my favorite brewery for basically my whole craft beer drinking life! And I have been fortunate to have lived in Seattle and Copenhagen, but Surly is just great! Try the Cooper if they still have it. Can't wait to get back there.

We had a tour scheduled for noon, very informative, educational tour. We have been to Surly numerous times but none of us had tried the pizza. Extremely busy downstairs, we thought we would have to wait for a table upstairs. Surprisingly, plenty of room upstairs....More

First time visitors and we could not believe how big and busy this place is! We were seated quickly and had excellent beer and food.
