BLAKKR is a Norse word meaning "dark" or "black," appropriate as the beer was created by three brewers who are all big metal fans. "The idea of a collaboration goes back a few years," says Surly headbrewer Todd Haug. "Metal and beer. The idea started as a way for like-minded brewers to join forces to create a beer inspired by our love and respect of metal and [to] get the beer into more territories than any individual brewery could reach." After gaining momentum last summer, it took six months to collaborate while working between their different companies.
