Twin Cities hip-hop crew Doomtree teased earlier this year that their 10th Blowout celebration would feature some sort of collaboration with Surly Brewing. As previously reported, the Doomtree Blowout X is the last one ever, and is expected to mark the release of a new album.
Now we discover that Surly is prepping an authentic draft craft beer created with input from P.O.S., Dessa, Sims, Mike Mictlan, Cecil Otter, Paper Tiger, and Lazerbeak. This will reportedly be "non-traditional and hard to classify." The "NO KINGS" of beers, if you will. The beverage will arrive in conjunction with Surly Doomtree Day, set for Sunday, December 7.
Doomtree Blowout X is the Last Ever
Doomtree Blowout X spans December 6-13, and will probably make every member of the group want to sleep for the entire month of January. In addition to the Surly event, shows will be held at the Turf Club, Icehouse, Triple Rock Social Club, Varsity Theater, First Avenue, and more. Each has a different theme, rhyme, or reason.
Surly Doomtree Day will also include a bar crawl arranged by the group. The collaboration began taking shape over the summer. More details to follow.
Their hybrid logo:
"We wanted to do something really special to cap off this decade-long Blowout run,"
Doomtree producer Lazerbeak said. "Getting to know the Surly guys over the last year and witnessing the pride and dedication they have not only for the beer that they create but the state that they come from, it all just kind of clicked. Our approach to our craft is super similar, plus we all just get along really well. Simple as that. Collaborating on a new beer that we could all enjoy during the Last Blowout Ever was a no-brainer. SO PUMPED."
