Doomtree by Surly Brewing Co.

Marvel's Daredevil came out on Netflix on April 10th and all I have been hearing around the forums is how well done it is. I have read many articles about the fun Easter eggs in Daredevil, like this one here, and how the movie connects to the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. I just got to my hotel room in Minnesota for my second stint in Forest Lake and so I am starting to watch Daredevil. So far, it has that gritty dark feeling that you would expect with a Daredevil show. 

If I had to compare it to a Comic book TV show I would say it has a similar feeling to Gotham. Don't get me wrong, I am really enjoying the DC TV Universe, huge fan of Flash and Green Arrow. All I am saying it is a bit hokey at times. Daredevil is just a blind martial arts bad ass, the choreography in these fight scenes are pretty incredible. Daredevil is the first of four TV shows produced by Marvel for Netflix with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist being the next in line. At the end of it all they will all come together for a Defenders min-series.

I am back in Minnesota and ready to get back to enjoying some good Minnesota Craft Beers. My hope, depending on my conflicts with actual work, will be to visit a couple more breweries while I am in town. One of those breweries I hope to visit is Surly Brewing Co. I have been able to try two beers from Surly and I have yet to be disappointed. 

Doomtree is an English Bitter that has a very light smell with a little white head. As the liquid moves from the glass into my mouth and down to my stomach I notice light lacing around the glass. Doomtree is dark gold in color, it really takes makes you feel like your in an English Pub enjoying a pint with your pals. It has a bittery dry taste, one that I am not a huge fan of. That is to be expected with an English Bitter style beer. For the style, they did an excellent job at making it unique yet original. Like I said, I hope to make it down to Surly Brewing Company while I am back in town.
