Clown Shoes Beer is releasing another Minnesota state exclusive early next year.
According to a post on the Ipswich, Mass.-based company’s Facebook page, Itasca Loonidragon 2016 is a 13 percent ABV Russian imperial stout aged in “bourbon barrels reconditioned with Bowmore 12 year” whisky. The base beer is the brewery’s Blaecon Unidragon (12.5 percent ABV) which was first released in 2011.
This year Itasca Loonidragon was aged in Scotch barrels. Due on shelves in MN only this February! https://fb.me/H5md9w7Y
This is the second incarnation of the beer, following Itasca Loonidragon (14.5 percent ABV) that debuted in 2014 after being aged in bourbon barrels.
Itasca Loonidragon 2016 will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and will be available only in the state of Minnesota when it ships in February 2016.
