Yes, you read that right. Courtesy of the New Belgium Brewing Company, Maryland’s finest purveyors of the riff, Clutch, are getting their own ale! The Clutch Dark Sour Ale (9.0% ABV) has been released this month are part of the company’s experimental ‘Lips of Faith’ series. The description is as follows:
“Pure rock fury meets Belgian-style brewed folly in this collaboration with Maryland hard-rockers, Clutch. A pronounced bass line of dark chocolate, coffee and black malts bridge the sourness of our dark wood ale for a fluid riff.”
I don’t think I can put it much better than that.
Unfortunately, anyone hoping to see this reviewed in our ‘Room for One More’ series that I launched recently may have to wait. A long time. New Belgium are based in the United States and I’ve no idea whether this bad boy will be made available in the UK. But you never know. My quest for fine ale is never-ending.
