Guest speaker Jim Riendeau explained how to improve energy economy, indoor building environments, indoor air quality (IAQ), and building pressurization control. He also spoke to the importance of management and control of Outdoor Air Quality (OAQ) in ensuring a productive and healthy indoor environment. OAQ monitoring is required by industry standards and is also recognized by LEED with the available NC IEQ Credit.

Surly Brewing Company

Surly began in 2005 at a repurposed abrasives factory in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. They quickly made the ‘Best of” and ‘Brewery of the Year’ lists to establish their permanence. Minnesota had an outdated law prohibiting the sale of alcohol at the location it was made, which complicated Surly’s vision for operation. In an effort to overcome this roadblock, Surly worked with lawmakers to get a new law passed in 2011 known as the ‘Surly Bill.’ The new law allowed breweries to create and sell in the same location. This style of onsite brewing is what Minnesotans recognize and frequent today. In December 2014, Surly moved from its home in Brooklyn Center to Minneapolis’ Prospect Park neighborhood. The 50,000 square-foot facility hosts a brewhouse, beer hall, beer garden, event center, company store, Festival Field concert venue, and pizza restaurant.
