    Nice haul.
    Wife and I were happy to attend just to feed some large cats, but I will say, it was my first time having Surly Five, and it would have been worth it for that alone.

    I've had both at the brewpub, and would never have been able to walk away with that impression. I thought they had meaningfully different flavors and aromas. So I'm kind of wondering if they've changed with age... or what...

    I think both are excellent, but they're both great as alternatives to standard options that we have all had a few too many times. Nice to have that stuff, but not the end of the world if you miss it.
