Clown Shoes Beer, based in Burlington, Massachusetts, recently released its seasonal beer, Genghis Pecan.
This “pecan pie porter” is a dark, full-flavored beer clocking in at 7% ABV, and incorporates 200 pounds of freshly roasted pecans from Q’s Nuts in Somerville, MA. The image on the label features Genghis Khan fending off turkeys wearing clown shoes by throwing pecan pies at them, set against an autumn sky.
The brewery releases this special beer once a year, and this vintage has a slightly tweaked recipe that aims to accentuate the roasted pecan flavors even more.
With the influx of new craft breweries in the US, Clown Shoes has carved out a unique niche with its edgy and often comical labels styles.
