Surly sure has a significant presence on the list. Looks like we are not alone in our opinion of their stuff.

I thought some of those looked familiar. The foreign words frighten and confuse me.

My count is up to 21.

Yea, definitely top 10 brewery in the country.

I don't believe Wet was on the list last year. Sounds like people thought highly of the 2012 batch.

I got to try some 3 Floyd's Dreadnaught over the summer. Drank it at great wolf lodge in cincy before hitting the water slides with the kids. Great times

Thanks again for sharing. I remember having it at rutiger's watching the FL game (what was it, 7 or 8 days old?) and tailgating before the USC game. Great beer.

I'm lucky enough to live not far from the brewery. It's on tap at many of the bars I frequent. I know Furious is very highly rated, but it's too hoppy for me. I do love Surly Bender.

That's a top-notch brown ale.

Yes, you are lucky! I am a hophead, so I love Furious, as well as Abrasive and Wet.

I've also tried Bender, which I liked (brown ales are not my thing), and Darkness, which I loved.

I love IPAs, Stouts and Belgian style ales.

I'm with you on the Stouts and Belgian Ales, but not the IPA's. I also like Bocks and Doublebocks.

Looks like my Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock and Spaten Optimator favorites have been bumped off the list.

I don't care, though.......I like what I like.

This seems to be the era of IPA's and other hoppy brews, which I don't particularly favor. But to those who do.

Do you think "Drink Canada Dry" is a slogan or a challenge?
My count is 9. Cheers.
