On October 12, the Minnesota Home Brewers Association was invited for a private tour by Surly Brewer, Derek Allmendinger. Derek is a member of the club and homebrewer turned pro! Derek started his career in professional brewing at Schell’s in New Ulm before coming back to the Twin Cities and joining Surly Brewing.
Derek gave us a great behind the scenes tour of the Surly Brewing operation. Additionally he gave a great talk on his background and his transition from banker/homebrewer to professional brewer!
