Clutch Beer - New Dark & Sour Ale!

When Clutch was ignited in 1991, they had no set agenda or a long-term plan as in what they wanted to accomplish musically. All they knew is that if they wanted to keep themselves from having to get "regular jobs", they would have to dedicate their entire lives to their music and tour, tour, tour. They also realized that in order for them to prevail, they would have to create memorable rocking songs. But they ever plan on one day having their own beer? That's right, Clutch has just announced that they will be launching a brand new Dark & Sour Ale!

The Maryland Rockers have teamed up with American Beer masters New Belgium Brewing Company, to brew, bottle and distribute the brand new Clutch beer! The 9% alcohol by volume dark sour ale joins NBB's Lips of Faith Series, adding to a beer family which already includes the highly popular Fat Tire Ale, which is now sold in over 32 of the 48 continental United States. The beer is available in 22 oz. bottles and a limited amount of kegs. New Belgium and Clutch will officially unleash the ale at a very special kickoff event at the Red Palace in Washington D.C. on Sunday, September 18th, 2011, at which members of Clutch and their label Weathermaker Music will be present. Admission will be limited. So is Clutch going to retire from the music industry and focus on brewing/drinking beer? Think again, the band has a feud of European tour-dates lined up for the Fall (see below).

We had the chance to interview Clutch's axeman Tim Sult at their most recent show in New York City, check it out! And hey, put your beers & Horns Up!
