Clutch creates its own Beer!

Mmm, beer...

American Beer masters New Belgium Brewing Company have teamed up with Maryland based veteran metallists Clutch 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 (the band) will officially unleash the ale at a very special kickoff event at the Red Palace in Washington DC on Monday night (tonight) August 29th, at which members of the band and their label Weathermaker Music will be present.  Admission will be limited.

Prior to this cross-marketing match made in heaven, Clutch had just completed a highly successful North American headlining tour.  The band's schedule for the final few months of 2011 continues with a three week European tour beginning in Frankfurt, Germany on Halloween as direct support to Danish rockers Volbeat, which will see the band play large scale venues in historic European cities like Milan, Paris, Brussels, Munich and Vienna amongst others. Following the dates with Volbeat the band will be embarking on a headlining Scandinavian run that will bring them all the way to Helsinki, Finland.  After the Scandinavian dates the boys will be back stateside for their traditional Northeast Holiday Headline run.  It doesn't stop there though, directly following the Holiday shows, CLUTCH will gear up for a three week run of the UK, as direct support for classic Irish rockers Thin Lizzy!



NEWS UPDATE: The launch party for Clutch beer scheduled for tonight (August 29th) has now been cancelled until further notice. Metal as Fuck will of course post new details as and when they become available.
