Clown Shoes Beer’s next barrel-aged canned release is a style of beer the brewery has stated in the past it would never produce.
Gordo Barrel-Aged Pumpkin Stout is a 10.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with pumpkin purée and spices and aged in bourbon barrels. This will be the first time in the company’s history it has packaged a stout brewed with the fruit.
“We used to say we’d never make a Pumpkin beer,” reads a post on Clown Shoes’ Facebook page. “But we also used to say they would never make another Toy Story movie. Turns out we were wrong about both.”
According to Clown Shoes, Gordo Barrel-Aged Pumpkin Stout will be packaged in 16-ounce cans that are scheduled to be shipped to retailers in “most markets later this year.”
