Hooray beer! More tasty brews available to us this week! This time from Clock House Brewing Company! They will be releasing a few very small batch beers and include them in a 4 pack variety pack! Here are the deets on this 4 pack courtesy of Clock House’s Facebook page!

We are excited to announce we have 3 new beers coming your way on Thursday, June 4th. These delicious brews were all part of our small batch experimental trial, so supplies are very limited. We will be offering 4-can (16 oz) variety packs to go which includes the following:

1 can of Snoozberry Smoothie– We took our over fruited Snozzberry Sour and added even more fruit to it. This may be the healthiest beer ever made.
1 can of Sour Patch Man– Our kettle sour infused with loads of Sour Patch Kids. Our spin on what adult candy would look like.
2 cans of Pineapple Coconut Witch Slap– Our flagship NEIPA infused with several pounds of coconut and pineapple. If you like beer-adas and getting caught in the rain, this may be for you.

The Deets:
-One 4-pack per customer. These were nano-brews, so supplies are limited.
-No substitutions. These beers will not be available for individual purchase.
-A limited amount of Pineapple Coconut Witch Slap and Sour Patch Man will be available on draft in our taproom. Snoozberry Smoothie will unfortunately not be on tap.
-The variety packs will only be available to purchase online.
-Pickups can be made in our taproom or at the curb.

Iowa Beer Sneak Peek! Clock House Low Bandito!

Before I get into the details of this brew from Clock House I just want to share the release info for it which is coming this Wednesday!

*For the first time Clock House will be offering their delicious imperial stout in 16 oz cans starting this Wednesday, May 6th starting at 3:00 p.m. Low Bandito is an imperial stout aged with habanero peppers, limes, cacao nibs, vanilla beans and cinnamon. This is what you think a Mexican hot chocolate would taste like. This bad boy checks in at 11% ABV. Pick yours up at Clock House curbside starting this Wednesday!

Alright, there are the deets for the release. Onto the tasty brew itself. Was very grateful to Clock House staff for hooking me up with one first of all, so thank you to them! I’ve been spending a lot of my time driving over and picking up Pineapple Witch Slap on what seems to be a daily basis but this Wednesday I’ll be driving over for Low Bandito.

POUR
Dark viscous pour, aroma of cinnamon and cocoa take center stage with vanilla on the back. Nice looking tan head on this thing this dissipates.

TASTE
Cinnamon, chocolate, and vanilla right away and then a small shot of heat from the habanero, the lime is very subtle, but you can definitely get some faint citrus from it.

OVERALL
I can’t wait to get more of this. A few to sip on when the spring evening gets a tad cool and the sun goes down and maybe a few to store to see what the flavors do. Clock House has been upping their game constantly; IPAs, Sours, stouts, etc…they’ve been pushing it and they’ve been delivering! Get there this Wednesday folks and if you get some I’d love to hear your thoughts! Cheers!

This beer will be available from 3-6 next Wednesday…word of warning..you may want to get there quick, depending on limits, I may gorge myself! Voted by me as one of the “Best Beers in Iowa 2019”, I can’t wait to get another taste. Check out my best of 2019 here, and here’s more on this wonderful brew:

The Witches are at it again and have decided to take our Flag Ship “Witch Slap NEIPA” to warmer places. They’ve added loads of Pineapple during primary and secondary fermentation to create a unique tropical twist.

Drink This! Clock House Low Bandito Cherry/Coconut

One of my favorite tap rooms to visit is at Clock House Brewing. Something about that space that just makes me feel comfortable, and the fact that they are turning out some damn tasty brews too. I stopped in on a relatively slow Sunday afternoon and was lucky enough to have a pour of their Low Bandito Cherry/Coconut barrel-aged stout.

Low Bandito is their imperial stout and they’ve made some different variants of that tasty brew. I’ve had the vanilla, chocolate, coconut variant and really enjoyed that but the Cherry Coconut really stood out! Here’s more on this brew:

Driftless Glenn Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Aged on tart cherries and coconut

Wonderful aroma from the barrel that blends really well with the subtle coconut flavor. Cherry wasn’t prevalent right away but after it warmed the cherry really shined through. I ordered a Hazy Clock Tease while I let the Bandito sit for a while just to get more from that tart cherry. This checks in at a 9.6% but it was trying not to order a second draw.

I’m not sure how much of this brew Todd and Clock House have left so you might want to make the trek to downtown CR to get yourself a taste of this delicious brew. It is CR Craft beer so that can be your reason to get out and Drink This!
