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!

I used this expression the other night and my wife burst out laughing. I don’t think either of us had heard it in years.
