New 'United Crushers' Beer Raising Red Flags with Artists
March 11, 2017 02:29 PM
A new beer, named to celebrate Minnesota's new MLS team, is brewing controversy with a group of local artists.
Several men who didn't want to be identified by name say they are part of the United Crushers art collective, a group who years ago climbed on top of the ADM-Delmar #4 grain elevator in Prospect Park and painted their namesake on the side.
Last week, they saw advertisments and an announcement from Surly Brewing that a new pale ale was set to be released March 12 called the "United Crushers" Pale Ale.
The men said they were caught off guard and that "a lot of natural questions arose," like how the brewery came up with the concept and name.
