Surly Teaming Up With 3 Floyds and Real Ale Brewing for cans of BLAKKR Imperial Black Ale
If you're a fan of these three breweries you can probably see why it makes sense that they'd come together. Surly's head brewer, Todd Haug, is himself a guitarist in the Minneapolis-based metal band Powermad. Surly has also released a string of beers featuring artwork that would look quite at home on a metal album cover...not to mention the cult following around their annual release of Darkness, it seems they've weaved an intricate web between craft beer and heavy metal.
Three Floyds has collaborated with a number of metal bands in the past for beers such as Permanent Funeral Pale Ale, Toxic Revolution Stout, and Warmullet Double IPA. The Indiana brewery also showcases metal bands at their annual Dark Lord Day.
Real Ale Brewing Company, located in Blanco, Texas, can also lay claim to having an affinity for metal. The brewery recently teamed up a local metal act, The Sword, for the release of Iron Swan Ale cans.
