Surly belongs in the city. Come to St. Paul, we'd love to have you.

Downtown Minneapolis is where businesses go to die. Interesting decision to put the facility in downtown with the endless parade of business failures and the countless vacant retail spaces in the sundry buildings. I like Surly, but I will not drive downtown, pay to park, then have to tolerate high crime and harassment from the gangs that congregate in the retail areas.

There is a giant old brewery on the riverfront in St. Paul that could accommodate all needs. That seems to make a lot more sense than rehabbing a port terminal or whatever other crazy idea RT can come up with. St. Paul is the better of the Twin Cities. It simply makes sense.

Ugh - Surly, get out of Brooklyn Center/Park. And preferably down to Chaska!! Love the beer & the company. I'm against Mpls/St.Paul as that may bring parking concerns and space limitations.

610 and Zane Ave in Brooklyn Park. Huge site, easy access, and I will be there weekly to provide guaranteed revenue.

Earlier Surly said it was going to build a $20 million facility. Show me your money not government money.

I doubt Omar is going to leave his daddies Brooklyn Center warehouse where he has pays NO rent for his brewery operations. Moving to another facility would mean he would actually have bills to pay like the rest of us.

Surely's would make a great addition to the property surrounding the new football stadium in Arden Hills. This could really kick off the return of tailgating in a major way if the stadium was on one side of the parking lot and Surely's on the other.

Yawn, give me a Summit and y'all can keep the trendy, overated hipster brew for yourselves. Craft beer market, Surly in paricular, is maxed out anyway.
