Surly Doomtree Day Bar Crawl details announced


It’s no wonder how Surly and Doomtree decided to collaborate on a special beer. Surly Brewing and the hip-hop collective, Doomtree, are both crusaders of quality. Their missions are to provide an alternative to the bland dross filling our beer glasses and our headphones, and both have gained a fervent following along the way. Now, after nine successful Doomtree Blowout concerts, the hip-hop group is enlisting Surly’s help to go out with a bang for the tenth and final Blowout.

Details about the beer have remained under wraps since the announcement of the collaboration. Todd Haug, Head of Brewing Operations at Surly led the project and is “remaining tight-lipped about the beer style, but it’s a style that is fitting of both Doomtree and Surly—non-traditional and hard to classify,” according to Surly’s website. This was a year of collaborations for Haug, who created beers with other breweries, metal bands, and even Chipotle for their Cultivate Festival. If those other beers are any indication, the Surly/Doomtree beer will be another top-notch brew.

Today, Surly and Doomtree revealed new information on the beer’s release, which will take place during a Surly Doomtree Day Bar Crawl spanning six bars in St. Paul and Minneapolis on December 7.

Surly and Doomtree will lead two buses of fans who purchased the full Blowout ticket packages, VIPs, and friends on two bar crawls across Minneapolis and St. Paul, fueled by the new Surly Doomtree beer. The crawl will end with an intimate, invite-only Doomtree performance.
Surly and Doomtree are encouraging fans who didn’t purchase the full Blowout ticket packages to meet them at the bar crawl locations to hang out and try their new collaboration beer, and grab some Surly Doomtree merchandise. During each stop, they will also be giving away a handful of tickets to the exclusive show that night and to some of the Blowout shows.
Only a few more seats remain on the bus and they are not for sale—you have to win them. Check Surly and Doomtree’s social media pages for more details on how to win tickets.
