Surly Darkness Day is almost upon us. And the weather isThe Perfect Dip looking perfectly appropriate for the occasion…cold and overcast. If I’m actually out there by 7 a.m. as I’m planning to be, I’m bundling up for a long day of standing around. It’s supposed to be about 36 degrees at that point, with a high of 50 for the day.  

Apparently a local TV news producer has his own beer blog too, and shared some video and photos from his friend that volunteered time helping the Surly crew get everything bottled and ready for the event. Man, what a great idea. Why didn’t I think of that?
