Tastes Better


MN Beer Surly Brewing Co MN Food

Support MN Craft Beer & Restaurants


The food you eat and the beer you drink Tastes Better Local. Minnesota is home to everything from award-winning Twin Cities restaurants to perfect corner bars in one stoplight towns. They’re the spots that make your neighborhood thrive. They’re the spots where we get Surly. And they’re the spots getting whipsawed by the pandemic-driven economy. The bars and restaurants are either still closed or opening at reduced capacity, our own included. Distributors and liquor stores are doing their damnedest to keep up with demand. All of them need our support.

Order some takeout. Patronize your local liquor store on your supply runs. And be there when they can throw their doors open again (even if it’s at a socially safe distance). We want to lift a Surly to the barkeeps and the dishwashers, the truck drivers and the line cooks, the store clerks and the nurses. When they turn the lights back on, remember that everything #TastesBetterLocal.


Display your support with posters, signs, and social media graphics, all downloadable here. Yes, we have Zoom backgrounds.


Below you can find just some of the spots where we Get Surly. Some are currently doing takeout/delivery. Order from them! Some are gradually reopening or still hunkered down. Support them when you can! Some are your local liquor stores keeping their Surly stock fresh as hell. Make your supply run there!

Far from an exhaustive list, consider it more of a guide to places where you can put #TastesBetterLocal to work, and where we can all one day raise a glass of Furious. Together.

Want to have your local bar, restaurant, or liquor store added? Send us their info here.


If you’re supporting a local bar/restaurant/taproom/liquor store as we ride this out, tell people about it! Take a picture and put it on the ‘gram with the hashtag #tastesbetterlocal. Examples below. Think of it like a selfie, but for stimulating the local economy.

The beer you buy and the food you bring home will decide what breweries and restaurants will be here when this tough time passes. Until then, eat and drink local, support your neighbors and let’s share a pint down the road. .

I spent (if my memory serves me correct) 9 straight birthdays at firesidefoundry when I was younger. It is the taste of home, the smell of happiness, and will always be in my heart. Very proud to have that #TastesBetterLocal sign up here, and can’t wait to have a pint of surlybrewing beer at your bar again soon! ...

Our local bars are an extension of our families. They’re where we go to grieve a loss, celebrate good times, or come together to share a pint and laugh. .
mackenziepubmn defines that for me. Wonderful humans serving great beer (like, y’know, surlybrewing!), and great food! Jerk tacos, smoked wings, and homemade sauces...TRUST ME PEOPLE, these are the jam! Order some and bring it home for dinner, you’ll thank me! Remember, it always #TastesBetterLocal

Can't drink a Surly in your favorite bar? Your local liquor store has you back. An essential part of the #tastesbetterlocal movement, show them your support on this weekend's supply run. If that includes a Hop Pack, Grapefruit Supreme, or Furious? All the better. #surlybrewing ...
