Fueled by the frustration to find enough good craft beer, Omar Ansari decided to convert his parents’ abrasives factory into a brewery in 2004. He called it Surly Brewing. Surly brewed its first beer in 2006 and was named the country’s best brewery by BeerAdvocate a year later. From the start, the Twin Cities-based craft brewery has trailblazed the path for the craft beer movement. Don’t Settle. Get Surly.
