Clown Shoes Mango Arrives This Summer

Clown Shoes Mango

Clown Shoes Mango, and American-style kolsch breed with sweet orange peel, and mango, releases this summer. The beer actually appears on the brewery’s release calendar starting in April, but it seems to have not released yet.

Clown Shoes Mango will be a summer offering in 22oz bottles.

Style: Kolsch (w/ Sweet Orange Peel, Mango)
Availability: 22oz bottles
Release: Summer, 2015

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison

Burnside Blueberry Mint Saison kicks of the new Elemental Scale Series of one-off beers from the Portland, Oregon brewery.

This ale is fermented at slightly higher temperature than normal with Blueberries and local Honey added at conditioning along with a cold side infusion of a “mint tea.” This gives the beer a slightly tart and fruity quality with a subtle hint of mint freshness.
