Just show up a few hours early with a small cooler of beer.  Make a day out of it.
Should we take a cab home, Jesus?
Shit man, we can hoof it from here.
I know you can walk on water...

I don't think the brewery is really looking to have a bunch of people drinking on their property since they'll be liable for it.

what time do i need to be there to ensure i get 2 bottles?  :coffee:

Good question.  No clue how many people will show up.  They have had as many as 1000 for a tour.  If that many show up it will be a zoo.

jesus.  i'm figuring there are going to be that many.  that means i'm not showering for a couple weeks and i'll probably throw down a 5-mile jog before hopping in line.  (if i go  :unsure: )

No one will be allowed to enter the parking lot with beer and "tailgate".  Outside of the Surly property, that's the city's business...

Exports of Porter from Britain to the Baltic inspired brewers across the region to try making it themselves. Every country with a Baltic coastline continues to brew Porter today.

A version known as "Baltic porter", is brewed in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Russia. It has a higher alcohol content than ordinary porters. Baltic porter was introduced from Britain in the 18th century as a top-fermenting (i.e., ale-style) beer; influenced by regional styles when it began to be produced locally, it is now mostly brewed as a lager-style bottom-fermenting beer. Many Baltic porters were also influenced by Russian Imperial Stout. Export ales (see Russian Imperial Stout) introduced from Britain in the 18th century were influenced by regional styles when they began to be produced locally. What was once a top-fermenting ("ale-style") beer, it is now mostly brewed as a lager-style bottom-fermenting beer in Slavic and Baltic breweries.[6]

So the next question is...whats the difference between a bottom fermenting porter and a bock.

Porters usually have chocolate, roasted, and/or burnt malt.  Bock is made up of Munich and Vienna malts in most cases.

D-Day - the Latest
Dec 08, 2007

D-Day (Darkness Day) commeth! December 15th. Here is the latest.

Surly will open the gates to the brewery at 9:00 A.M. At that point we will start checking IDs. Individuals can not "hold" places in line for others not will we save any bottles for people. 480 bottles will be available. After 240 people have qued up, will we let people know that we are sold out. As soon as we know, we will change the message our phone message and this web-site. If we are sold out of Darkness, you can still purshase growlers of bender and furious.
There will be access to a restroom before the brewery doors open. We will start selling Darkness 750s at 2:00. 2 bottles max per person, $15 each plus tax.
CASH ONLY! To help speed things along, we are requesting that people bring cash to purchase their 2 bottles. The total will be $33 for 2 bottles, including tax.
We will have warm food available for purchase at the brewery. Uncle Frankies will be selling Hot Dogs during the day.
We will be selling growlers and merch from our regular hours of noon-2:00. Individuals waiting for Darkness will be able to purchase merchandise and growlers of Bender and Furious during that time. People will not lose their place in line if they want to buy merch and growlers.
The Darkness sale will happen at a different location in the brewrey than normal, so we can keep things moving quickly.
There will be 6 individual bottles of Darkness sold on Ebay to raise money for EnergyCents, a non-profit working to help keep the light and power on for folks that are having trouble with their utility bills. There will be a link on this page when the sale starts, December 16th.
Being that it is a Surly event, there are some surprises, and it should be fun for everybody.
One more thing, numerous people have asked when they should show up to be certain that they get beer. Obvously, we have never done this before and when people show up is not something we know.

Good morning Surly Nation. You’ve been having fun all weekend and its time
to get back to work… great job, it’s not even 9:00 and you’re thinking about
beer.

D-Day (Darkness Day) commeth! This Saturday, December 15th. Since people
have promised insanity, we present the following ground rules.

Surly will open the gates to the brewery at 9:00 A.M. At that point we will
start checking IDs. Individuals can not "hold" places in line for others,
and we will not save bottles for people. 480 bottles will be available, thus
after 240 people have qued up, will we let people know that we are sold out.
As soon as we know, we will change the message our phone message and this
web-site.

There will be access to a restroom before 9am. We will start selling
Darkness 750's at 2:00PM. 2 bottles max per person, $15 each (plus tax). To
help speed things along, we are taking CASH ONLY. The total will be $33 for
2 bottles, including tax.

If you have more than $33 burning a hole in your pocket, good news! We will
have warm food available for purchase at the brewery. Uncle Frankies will be
selling Hot Dogs during the day. We will also be selling growlers and merch
from our regular hours of noon-2:00. Individuals waiting for Darkness will
be able to purchase merchandise and growlers of Bender and Furious during
that time - you won't lose your place in line. If we are sold out of
Darkness, you can still come on in and purchase growlers of Bender and
Furious to get a Surly fix.

The Darkness sale will happen at a different location in the brewery than
normal, so we can keep things moving quickly.

And for those who just can't join us, there will be 6 individual bottles of
Darkness sold on Ebay to raise money for EnergyCents, a Minnesota non-profit
group that works to keep the lights and power on for folks that are having
trouble with their utility bills. There will be a link on this page when the
sale starts, December 16th.

Being that it is a Surly event, there are some surprises, and it should be
fun for everybody.

One more thing... numerous people have asked when they should show up to
guarantee that they get Darkness. We'll soon be able to tell you when to get
there in 2008, but 2007's start time is anyone's guess....

Smoke has been released and delivered to the following bars:
Mill City Café, Washington Square Grill, Mad Cappers, Stub & Herbs, Pracna,
Busters, Blue Nile, Café twenty-eight, Acadia, Grumpy’s NE, Muddy Pig, Happy
Gnome and Mackenzies.

We will be having a cask event at Groveland Tap next week and the two
release party will happen in January at the new Acadia Café. What is two you
ask, it’s our second anniversary dark ale brewed with over 40 pounds of
cranberries per barrel!

Omar,
See you drinking.

Steve> hi

you're doing great work in the comments there:

1. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 12:56 pm
I still can’t believe the fanboy hysteria over Surly.

It’s decent beer, but not stand-in-line good.


4. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 1:21 pm
You can line up at 9 am and they don’t start selling ’til 2 pm?

The projected high that day: 20 F.

What is it with this brewery that they like to make people line up in line and you fanboys just eat it up?


6. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 1:42 pm
Design?

I guess I evaluate the beer first and don’t care about the marketing.


9. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 2:17 pm
I think ridiculous is the correct word and it applies to Surly’s marketing and the lemmings who stand in line.

Just look at Autumn Beer Review and the 4-5 special releases Surly did and the huge line it created.

I think that was a cheap stunt to build buzz and attract attention.

If your beer is so good, bring enough for people to taste.


12. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 4:39 pm
Hater?

No, just surly (small s) when I have to stand in line. And also immune to fashion. You mentioned design. And product, which seems to state that the cool factor has more do to with anything than the beer itself, which is for the most part good and not great, IMHO.

I could wait for 5 hours in the cold to get a $15 bottle of Darkness (maybe) or I could in 15 minutes drop by The Cellars and pick up some Old Rasputin or Expedition for much less cash, which are both at least as good if not better.


15. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 5:03 pm
My only point is that it’s not worth the wait.

Yeah, it good beer, but not to the level of insanity surrounding it.

Good for Surly for doing well.

On the other hand all you have to do is look at the whole bogus Rate Beer and Beer Advocate system to see that the highest rated beers are merely the hardest to get.

Gee, what’s #1 on one of those sites? Westvleteren 12. Not like you can easily get your hands on that.

I think to some extent Surly is a fad. HOPS!!! HOPS!!! HOPS!!! Yawn. Been there. Done that. Same with RIS, which to beer newbies is cool, but from what I’ve observed, as a beer nerd for more than a decade now, is that palate’s grow.

Many people gravitate to the extremes in hops and gravity, but after some time look for more nuance and flavor variations.

There’s more to beer life than a hop kick in the face.


19. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 6:11 pm
I think the marketing is better than the beer. Much much better than the beer.

20. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 6:18 pm
“It’s the quality and the rarity, and the fact that they’re OURS.”

Rare does not mean good.

Yours? How? You are what you buy? You’re the sum total of the products you purchase?


23. Steve  |  December 10th, 2007 at 7:17 pm
That’s cool.

I’m just a skeptic, but I guess that’s obvious.

To me, all the special releases and limited edition things come across as exclusive and not inclusive.

Fifty?

What’s the record?

Hey, I shouldn’t have made that lemming remark. I didn’t mean to insult lemmings. 

(Hee hee. That should be good for more posts.)

Well, it sure seemed like a success.  Got all the beer handed out in just over an hour.  People enjoyed the band and their free subs.  Time for a few more beers.

This probably won;t help but I'm the big guy with the blue jacket and the hat holding up a cup of Smoke (like everyone else at that point). Camera apparently was right in front of me and I never noticed. I had polished off numerous cups of Smoke by then.

By big, I assume you are 6'5 and 100 lbs at least that is what it looked like. Big as in tall, not big as in TT (BIG (not meaning fat, just BIG)).

Where was Todd in all of this?

FWIW, I think I dreamed about meeting Omar last night which is strange because I don't exactly have him on the mind a lot.  :shrug:

Surly employee #6 was there too.  Nice to meet Beaner.

From Omar...

I just stopped by and saw Jeff and Ted hard at work at the new Acadia Cafe. The new location will be next to Midwest Mountaineering in the old New Riverside restaurant. The location is the corner of Riverside and Cedar in Minneapolis.
Seems like their place would be a great place to debut surly two. We have penciled in January 23rd to bring out the beer. Look for two along with Darkness 2006! Ted and Jeff squirreled a 1/4 barrel of it away for over a year. See you then.
