Surly Brewing SurlyFest
Never heard of Surly Brewing? Think of them as the Stone Brewing of the Midwest, making big, bold unapologetic beers. SurlyFest, naturally, bucks tradition while still making itself one of the finest fall lagers you can crack open. Surly brews with crisp, floral hops and three types of spicy rye grain for a lager that might be better called an India pale lager. It may be a stretch to classify this an Oktoberfest, but it's a damn fine beer to hoist under a big tent with an opa-opa band and spicy pretzel.
