You can tell immediately after a blowout if the bead crept or the sidewall blew out. You just have to look.

My money is on the tire being mounted incorrectly. It was either too deep in the rim in some spots creating slack in other spots, or the tube was partially under the bead. Assemble your tires with the tube partially inflated so it can't pinch under the bead, and pay attention to how concentric the tire is to the rim as you inflate it. Some tires will do this if the pressure falls too low in storage - you pump them back up, but they've shifted and blow out.
