A brand new beer from Clown Shoes Beer is meant to be “a tribute to people who walk quietly amongst us, carry heavy burdens, and manage obstacles bravely.”
The beer in question is Circle of Heroes, a 7 percent ABV hazy IPA that has been dry-hopped with both Lemon Drop and Mosaic hops before being packaged in 16-ounce cans.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the new IPA was crafted by Dennis Walker along with his colleague Melanie and her fiancé Matt, and proceeds from the sale of the new creation will be donated to The Travis Mill Foundation, which “supports recalibrated veterans and their families through long-term programs.”
In an email, Sean Geary, spokesperson for Clown Shoes, told Tenemu that Circle of Heroes Hazy IPA will be shipped to select Hannaford Supermarket locations in the states of Maine, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont starting in May.
