Not much has been reported on this yet, but last week, Shawn from the Beer Genome Project tweeted that Pracna was pulling all of their Surly beers because of the recently passed MN Pint Law, which will allow breweries like Surly to open up brewpubs and sell pints at their breweries.
The Beer Advocate Forums picked up on it (must be a member to read the comments), including a few notes from Megan, one of the Bar Managers at Pracna (and huge Surly fangirl). She couldn’t officially say why Pracna decided to pull Surly, but no one has discounted the rumor that it’s due to the pint law.
All of this seems really short sighted and a poor business decision to pull the biggest Craft beer in town. Pracna is still a good place to get a beer, but once a place tries takes a hard stand against something that a majority of beer lovers in this state supported, you have to question their (the owners) dedication to the beer scene.
Also, MN Beer Activist posted about this last week.
