Clown Shoes ought to fit!

By Becca Zidik

Becca Zidik_HeaderCrisp air and cool nights signify the change in seasons, a time that we all look forward to. Instead of the cliche PSL (pumpkin spice latte) or cinnamon apple cider, consider a refreshing glass of Clown Shoes beer! Straight from Ipswich, Mass., this craft brewery will be featured at The Foundry for Spartan weekend. After conquering the course, defending your personal title, and posting on social media about how sore your body is, simmer down with a tasting of Clown Shoes Galactica, Space Cake, and The Stranger. 

Galactica is straight out of this world hopping forward with pine and citrus notes to make you feel like the ultimate Spartan champion. Space Cake, on the other hand, may be the utmost reward for conquering one of the craziest courses the world of exercising has to offer. After a rigorous diet of healthy food, water, and sleep (can’t relate), what more could an athlete want other than a creamy malt-like Mosaic? It’s a regenerative fruit smoothie mixed with a caramel dessert suitable for everyone. Tastings are always fun, so don’t be a Stranger to the melon, citrus, herby flavors of Clown Shoes beer this coming weekend.
