The weather may be brutally cold when Amon Amarth, Enslaved and Skeletonwitch roll into Minneapolis on Saturday, February 8, but there will be a special strong beer, brewed specifically for this event by Surly Brewing, waiting for them. Surly is sponsoring the show at Mill City Nights and head brewer Todd Haug decided to provide an extra-special welcome for the bands (and concert attendees) with a very metal offering called Asator Viking IPA. “The Surly production team is fueled by metal,” Haug says, “so what better way to honor three of our favorite bands who have braved the winter to perform for Minnesota.”
This brew takes its name from an Amon Amarth song title and will be poured first at the concert, and for a very limited time at the brewery’s Taproom starting on Wednesday, February 12. “Asator, Surly Viking IPA, is a beer fit for battle, fermented on oak with a ruddy brown color,” Haug says. “The ale was brewed with peated, brown and crystal malts to create a shield wall of malt flavors, only to be hacked apart by a swinging sword of hops!”
