Earlier today Surly Brewing announced via their social media platforms that they will be closing their beer hall indefinitely starting November 2nd. In their announcement on their website they stated," As we complied fully with the safety measures, it became clear that beer halls are by definition gathering places and gathering places and pandemics don’t mix. Because of this, we have made the gut-wrenching decision to close the Beer Hall indefinitely on Nov. 2." In the announcement they also stated, "We ran all the numbers. We looked at all the possibilities. But try as we might to find a way to keep the doors open and our team employed, the writing was on the wall: There was no longer a way forward for the Beer Hall." You can read the full statement HERE.
While the Beer Hall will be closed, they will still be making beer, so Surly Brewing will still live on. We just wont be able to enjoy their great beer in their Beer Hall. Sad.
