Science + Video Games + Beer = An unlikely Venn Diagram of vice, technology, and earthly wonders that only Surly could harness—so they have! Surly’s Warp Zone pilsner honors the Science Museum of Minnesota and its new Game Changers exhibit, which explores video game design and development through the ages. They’re debuting the beer at a launch party on Monday, appropriately hosted at amidst the old machines at Up-Down. Dig out those coins—we notice they seem to multiply if left in the bottom of a bag too long—and head to the arcade bar for games, exclusive gear, and, of course, beer, which promises a crisp, floral sip. Surly is also matching the proceeds made from Up-Down’s Coins for a Cause program and donating t-shirt sale  to the Science Museum. Even though it’s a Monday, we advise arriving at 3 sharp to avoid the Pac-Man Battle lines. Monday, March 18th, 3-9 PM.Isabelle Wattenberg
