Fest-goers spent the first 3 hours of SurlyFest basking in glorious sunshine, using the tents only for reprieve from the sun.

Sticking with what they do best, Schell’s recently released a new lager to their arsenal. This time, however, it’s getting the royal hop treatment. Arminius Hoppy Pale Lager is double dry-hopped and brewed with over 2.5 lbs per barrel of a combination of German, French, and American hops. At 6.5% ABV and 70 IBU, it weighs in like an IPA.
