So I stop off at the local grocery store on my way home from work to pick up a few things, and who do I bump into in the produce section but The Man himself…Mr. Omar Ansari, founder of Surly. I chatted him up for a couple minutes, trying to get the lowdown on Darkness Day. But he didn’t offer much, other than to say to get there early. He said he wrapped up bottle preparation today, and was expecting numerous folks driving in from all over the country for the event, including Maryland and Ohio. I feel fortunate to live but a mere two miles from the brewery. So I should have no excuse in being one of the first 700 in line.

Check out an interview with Omar on our local FOX affiliate.
