Craft beer brewer Surly has released new images of its long-anticipated “destination brewery,” which will soon be built in Minneapolis’ Prospect Park neighborhood.
The images were unveiled Sunday night at the company’s seventh anniversary party. The company purchased the 8.3-acre site on Malcolm Avenue and SE. 5th Street this April, and has said it could be brewing there by 2014.
The $20 million facility is expected to feature a brewery, a bar and an event center.
The brewery was set in motion two years ago when the Legislature approved the so-called Surly Bill, allowing brewers to sell pints of their beer on the premises. The new law also helped spur a craft beer boom in neighborhoods across the Twin Cities.
The new facility is intended to expand on, rather than replace, Surly’s Brooklyn Center brewery, which will remain operational.
