We have waited a whole year for this day and it has finally come.
You can now order Surly Abrasive Ale online from France 44. Here is the link to the Surly page. The shop delivers to most states (but not all – more info on that below).
We can reasonably expect that this beer will likely sell out tonight (Tuesday) so you would be wise to get your orders in ASAP. It is ranked #14 among all Double IPAs in the world on RateBeer.
Surly Abrasive Ale has now sold out online. Looks like nearly 40 cases flew in approximately 4-5 hours.
Still plenty of other Surly beers still in stock.
However, another beer that will also not last long, Stone 12.12.12 Vertical Epic Ale, can still be purchased online.

Here is a link to the Shipping Policy and list of states to which France 44 can ship beer.
Fill up your cart and then click on “My Cart” in the upper right corner. On the next screen (order screen), punch in your zip code in the Destination Zip Code input field in the lower right part of the order screen and hit enter on the keyboard. It will then calculate your shipping (without having to sign up or enter a credit card).
The optimal order where shipping cost is most efficient is 24 beers (or 48 or multiples of 24 from there). If you order a 25th beer, they have to add a second box which is an extra charge.
No international shipping.
