The beer is available in 22 oz. bottles and a limited amount of kegs.

New Belgium and CLUTCH will officially unleash the ale at a very special kickoff event at the Red Palace in Washington DC on Monday night August 29th, at which members of CLUTCH and their label Weathermaker Music will be present. Admission will be limited…”
