Just because it’s almost winter doesn’t mean you can’t have those fruity summer vibes; at least that’s the mindset of Clown Shoes Beer with its upcoming limited release fruited-IPA called Don’t Fear the Blender.

“Don’t Fear the Blender is our first ‘fruit smoothy’ IPA,” says Bryan Doran, Regional Sales Manager for Clown Shoes; “[w]e added about 12.5 [pounds] per barrel of Pineapple, Mango, and Guava puree to the fermenter to enhance the tropical fruit flavors we’ll get from the Mosaic hops.”

The Ipswich, Mass.-based company will be releasing this new 7 percent ABV IPA in 16-ounce cans exclusively in the Connecticut market in early November.
