    It will be interesting if it is Bandwagon. I think Bandwagon is pretty good, but I can't really imagine ever buying it if Furious was also available.

    If you are a Bears or a Cubs fan, you will never be truly disappointed. However the Bears have won 4 more games head-to-head against the Packers, so I guess we are the better team.

    Maybe this will replace Hell as the mid-summer seasonal since it went year round?

    Now with Sucks and Overrated, will Stone follow suit with "Blows"?

    Todd tweeted this earlier today
    "@mikeboeve they are both "Am. IPA's" so I can only assume that people might think they are similar. New hop variety for us so we're stoked!"

    So, it can't be the same as bandwagon...which I still have yet to try damnit!!!

    Hmmm...a Super Bowl MVP, 2011 season MVP, and top QB rating in 2011 and 2012 suggest otherwise.

    And Surly rules!
     
  7. I assumed this was going to be canned Bandwagon, but I guess not? If so that's pretty awesome! What's the new hop variety mentioned above. New to Surly or new to the scene like Belma or Mosaic??

    Also, go Packers! Any haters are jealous.

    Actually don't know, I just read a lot of reviews that said the bottled stuff was terribad, and I think they just changed owners.

    Yeah the Bandwagon in caps on the label is probably a little hint at what the brew could be. Will be nice to try this brew having never been to Target Field.

    Probably similar or even very close, but not the same beer.

    When asked via Twitter if OVER RATED would be year round or seasonal Todd Replied with "occasional!" I feel weird quoting people from Twitter especially since I have never met Todd in person, but he does post here from time to time so I guess it's all good.

    Looks like this was the original plan according to the Surly newsletter:

    Overrated News
    This week, artwork for our upcoming canned West Coast IPA, Overrated, was leaked on the Internet. The unicorn-themed can art (below) was what we really wanted for Overrated but the Feds denied our artistic vision. They said it was too appealing to underage drinking, as if adults can't be into unicorns and rainbows?! Pfft. It's a little over the top, that's the joke...

  21. OK the labels been approved so when will the cans be filled ?

    Any time you ask this question with Surly, you know what the answer will be.

    "When it's ready".
     
  23. i knew that was coming:)

    I think its great, the Feds don't know what they're talking about I know lots of adults who would love this can. I myself started laughing when I seen it.

    Its obviously directed towards girls in the 4-11 year old demographic. Notorious for their heavy drinking (especially of IPA's). It had to be stopped.

    Marketing genius that this was both submited, and leaked. This will piss of the "Surly is just pretentious" crowd (seems to be more of them every time I go to any bar) even more.
     
  36. You're the only one who says "fury" for Furious, Trav. Or are you? Is there a larger cult that does this? Is it a time-saver or does it just sound cool to you?

    incutrav Savant (315) Minnesota Jan 16, 2007

    I'm a trendsetter, Al. However, this 'trend' hasnt moved much farther then my small group of friends who also refer to it as 'Fury'.

    For the exciting background story, I take you back. The year was 2006, Surly, along with Furious was fresh on the scene. I enjoyed the beer but disliked the effort required to articulate the three syllables needed to communicate my need for more 'Fur-io-us' at the bar. Simply staying 'Fury' eliminated one of those troublesome syllables. Combine that with a line from the fine cinema classic 'Road Trip', co-starring Tom Green. There was a semi-memorable line where Tom Greens character, Barry, is responsible for feeding his friends pet snake a mouse. When said snake would not eat the mouse, Barry yells at the snake *'Unleash the Fury!' That line came to mind everytime I cracked a Furious.

    *Exciting side note. In what I am sure is now a cult classic, the commercial I made for Surly in 2007(YouTube it, if you must) originally containted the 'Unleash the Fury' audio from the Road Trip movie. It ultimatley did not make the final edit for reasons I dont recall.

    Dammit! I will not be able to crack another furious with shouting "unleash the fury!" Thanks for putting
    That in my head.

    I talked to Omar last night at the Mild release at The Blue Nile. West Coast IPA will be similar to Bandwagon IPA but tweaked a little.
