Tuesday is a big day for Brooklyn Center based Surly Brewing.

That's when the maker of beers like Furious and Bender will break ground on its new brewery near Highway 280 and University Avenue in Minneapolis. The site will soon include a brewery, bar, restaurant, beer garden and event center.

Surly's owners had to go to the State Legislature in order to get the law changed so it could serve its beer on site.

Surly hopes to open its new brewery by the end of 2014.
