MINNEAPOLIS - Surly Brewing is reportedly seeking a $500,000 loan to support the $20 million, 60,000-square-foot destination brewery it is proposing near the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Finance and Commerce reports that the Brooklyn Center-based Surly has been engaged in "due diligence and feasibility analysis" for months when it comes to its favored site, a 7.46-acre demolished potato processing plant location at 3171 Fifth St. SE.
A $500,000 Transit Oriented Development loan from the county "will help that feasibility," Tom Hauschild, a partner at the Minneapolis-based TEGRA Group that is advising Surly and owner Omar Ansari on the project, told Finance and Commerce.
Surly previously received nearly $2 million of the $2.5 million in environmental cleanup grants it was seeking from the state, the county and the Metropolitan Council.
