Hanging out at my favorite Arlington beer bar after a day out in the sun, my eyes quickly landed on the Clementine from Clown Shoes while perusing the draft list. Clown Shoes is a newer, small brewery out of Massachusetts but they are growing. They only recently came onto my radar but after having a few of their beers I think they are doing some good things, the Clementine is one of those.

Review: Great Lakes Holy Moses0

by Mikeat 10:25 AM

Summer is quickly coming to a close which means that soon it will be time to trade in your refreshing wheat beers for some filling and warming Stouts. But that’s not for a few more weeks, so drink up while the beer is still seasonal. In this spirit, I have the Holy Moses White Ale, a 5.4% ABV Witbier from Great Lakes Brewing Company.
