Surly First Avenue +1 is a beer made to enjoy wherever the music hits you. So to introduce this music-inspired beer to the Chicago area, we decided to have one of our Secret Beer Parties. What better venue to debut First Avenue +1 than Shuga Records in Wicker Park? We drank, we ate, we bought records, and even listened to an in-store performance from Flamingo Rodeo. DJ Tim Zawada was also there spinning Prince-inspired Minneapolis sound for everyone to enjoy while they shopped the store. Shuga Records was booming with beer and bass and three lucky winners walked away with free tickets to see a show at First Avenue in Minneapolis.

There are parties, and then there are PARTIES. Our event with Alaskan Brewing at Moosejaw last Thursday was the latter. We came, we ate, we drank, we had a frozen t-shirt contest, some of us did pull-ups, and one of you went home with a Yeti cooler thanks to Moosejaw.
