Clown Shoes Beer has traveled to the far East to acquire ingredients for its newest Texas-exclusive release.
The beer in question is Once Upon A Time In The Far East, a 14 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cold-brewed Vietnamese coffee. The Ipswich, Mass.-based brewery has brewed various beers with coffee before, including Breakfast Beast (10.5 percent ABV), The Barista (8 percent ABV) and Hephaestus (14 percent ABV), among others.
In an email, Bryan Doran, director sales and development at Clown Shoes, told Tenemu that Once Upon A Time In The Far East will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and will be available exclusively to retailers in the state of Texas in early November.
