Craft beer is no stranger to collaboration. Frequently we see brewers help each other out and work together to bring us amazing brews that benefit from their collective knowledge. Collaborations aren’t just for brewer teams anymore. We’ve seen a number of great brewer and musician brews. If one was to pick pairing of Minnesota brewer and Minnesota-made musicians, the pairing of Surly Brewing and Doomtree would be the perfect mix. With Surly Doomtree beer, that’s just what happened.

Recently I’d tweeted a link to a quick little write up I’d posted back in 2012 about a bottle of Goose Island Imperial IPA that had been in the cellar since 2007.  The social media folks at Goose Island reached out to me and sent a couple bottles of their new The Illinois imperial India pale ale my way.  As someone that works in social media, it’s awesome to see a companies that follow what people are saying about them on social and work to build great relationships with their consumers through social media.  Thanks to Goose Island for paying attention to what your customers are talking about and for making social the two-way conversation that it should be.
