Surly Brewing to release United Crushers Pale Ale at Minnesota United pre-game celebration on Sunday, March 12th

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – “When you get new neighbors, you want to do something nice for them,” said Omar Ansari, owner and founder of Surly Brewing. Fruit baskets are overrated and as much as we’d love to help them with that sofa sleeper, our chiropractor said to ease off the heavy lifting. So, when we found out Minnesota United were moving in up the street, we decided to do what we do best: Brew a beer for them.

If you’re ever in Prospect Park, it is impossible to miss the United Crushers building. Enterprising graffiti artists put their indelible stamp on the ADM-Delmar #4 elevator, and now it’s as much a part of the local landscape as Dave Dahl’s radar or Witch’s Tower. With that in mind, we tip our hat to them and Minnesota’s new MLS franchise with United Crushers Pale Ale.  The beer itself is eminently crushable. It’s a traditional American pale, dry-hopped with Mandarina, Bavaria, Eureka, and Chinook hops, so you can expect some tropical, grapefruit, and piney notes.

“Surly is a fantastic local brewery with a long track record of creativity and collaboration when it comes to beer making,” said MNUFC President Nick Rogers. “We’re proud that they’re honoring our arrival in MLS with Surly United Crushers and thrilled to be offering it at home matches throughout the season.”

United Crushers will debut at the official MNUFC pregame party at the Destination Brewery on Sunday, March 12 at 11am.  It will also be available on game days at TCF Bank Stadium. The celebration will feature a free pour of beer for anyone wearing soccer gear, live music in the beer garden featuring 4onthefloor, new merchandise, a big-ass tent, and a spirited march to the stadium.  If you’re not biking/walking/taking the train, we also have free parking. That bears repeating: free parking.

Official Minnesota United Pregame Party & Release of United Crushers Pale Ale Free admission. All ages.

Surly Brewing Co., 520 Malcolm Ave. SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414

Sunday, March 12 (11:00am – 4:00pm)
