Surly takes food and beer pairings to a new height
The much-anticipated opening of Surly’s Brewer’s Table is slated for Friday. Located upstairs at Minneapolis’ brewery mecca, Brewer’s Table takes food and beer pairing to the next level. Executive Chef Jorge Guzman and his team have created what Surly is touting as "an elevated and ambitious dining menu" that promised to challenge visitors with "trailblazing pairings." Unpredictable and innovative dishes like a black tea egg with hazelnuts and black garlic puree are perfectly executed in a comfortable, unpretentious setting.
