Although we love making our signature roasts day in and day out, what we really live for, is collaborating with other small companies on something special. Enter Clown Shoes, a small brewery founded in 2009 by a group of beer aficionados, located in Ipswich, Massachusetts. This great company makes a wide variety of interesting, off-the-map brews, redefining what craft beer should be about! We're also in love with the witty names for each of their creations and the fabulous illustrations on their labels.
So naturally, we were honored when owner Gregg Berman and his team approached us to roast nuts for their Genghis Pecan-Pecan Pie Porter. Two hundred pounds of slow roasted pecans + a few months of Clown Shoes lovemaking = RICH, SMOOTH, NUTTY WITH A TOUCH OF CARMELIZED SUGAR, DAMN GOOD PORTER!
We are excited to finally have the Pecan Pie Porter available and look forward to hearing what you think!
Join us tonight, Tuesday September 10th 5-7 for Clown Shoes' Pecan Pie Porter release party, HAVE YOUR PIE AND DRINK IT TOO at Redbones in Davis Square, Somerville. Redbones will be serving their famous pecan pie alongside the brew. And who knows, Genghis Q may make an appearance! (Is it just us, or does this illustration look like Q?)
Our friends at The Grog in Newburyport will also be tapping this brew soon, as well as Sunset Grill and Tap in Allston. Not in the area? Go to Clown Shoes' website to find your local retailer.
