Top 10 Weird Beers

Clown Shoes Genghis Pecan Pie Porter is made with brown sugar and 200 pounds of freshly roasted pecans

Genghis Pecan Pie Porter
American Porter
Clown Shoes/Ipswich, MA

Clown Shoes was founded in December 2009 by beer lovers wanting to make work fun, and the company's whimsical name suggests that they aren't taking themselves too seriously. Contract-brewed at Ipswich Ale Brewery in Massachusetts, this American-style porter is made with brown sugar and 200 pounds of freshly roasted pecans sourced from nearby Q's Nuts in Somerville. It pours an opaque dark brown with a tan head. Both the aroma and the flavor are dominated by an earthy, roasted nuttiness, with more of the pecan flavors coming through as the brew warms. A chocolate finish that is sweet without being cloying makes this beer an ideal end to a holiday meal — or enjoy it as a liquid dessert on its own.

Price: $5 for 22 oz
7 percent ABV
