I can proudly say I’ve seen a good chunk of the globe at this point in my life – England, Wales, France, and the majority of the United States – and I can honestly say that I’ve never been anywhere that has as much of a booming craft beer scene as Minnesota.

Which is great for people like myself who are total beer fanatics. And trust me, I’ve had my fair share of brews in my day, but my new favorite is Surly (which also just so happens to be the undisputed leader of the craft beer scene here in the land of 10,000 lakes.)

Anytime these guys release a new beer I make sure that I try it right away. I feel like a kid on Christmas. Surly recently released their “Wet Hop Pale Ale.” Naturally I had to get my hands on it, and I’ve gotta say, I absolutely loved it.

I know hop accented beverages are a bit of an acquired taste, but I found that it had the perfect combination of Surly's classic crisp bite and the aroma of hops. Just another awesome brew from Surly to add to your “to drink” list. If you’re a craft beer connoisseur I definitely recommend this bad boy.
