The new brewery will allow Surly to increase its production by up to 100,000 barrels a year. In 2012 the brewery produced just shy of 20,000 barrels in its current Brooklyn Center location.
The new building will become what Surly is referring to as a "destination brewery." The location will feature an onsite bar, restaurant, beer garden, and event center and is conveniently located just off the new Central Corridor light rail line.
According to Surly Brewing Co. founder Omar Ansari, ""The Malcolm Midway site has everything we need to build a world-class brewery. We're excited to be moving to a central location that will be a destination for everyone in the Twin Cities."
Surly hopes that cleanup of the new site will begin sometime in the fall.
