Clown Shoes – Good Beer, Even Better Names…

 

Yes, I admit it, I picked up this beer mainly because of the name and the picture.  I chuckled to myself in the store when I spotted it, and couldn’t resist its charm!  The only down fall, is the cap is just gold – no imprint.  I’ll forgive them that though, as the label is so photo worthy!

If you haven’t tried a beer by Clown Shoes, you should.  This brewery seemed to come out of nowhere with their clever names and tasty brew – and I’m glad they did.

The “Tramp Stamp” is a Belgian Style IPA, using Belgian yeasts and still packing lots of hop flavor.  It was a bit citrusy tasting, brewed with a little bit of orange peel – but over all it was pretty mellow and tasty.  The Belgian style yeast gives the brew a super bubbly mouth feel – one that I enjoy.

I’m into Clown Shoes lately, so be on the lookout for more pictures of their labels!
