Kung Fu Ballet

The Kung Fu Ballet is our first-of-its-kind story told through a yearlong series of barrel-aged releases. Master Clown Shoes’ tale of redemption, brewing, and martial arts will unfold across these special release beers and an accompanying series of comic strips available exclusively on our website.


Origin Story

Prideful. Blinded by (unfounded?) dislike? Master Clown Shoes challenged the leader of the upstart Motherless Children School of Kung Fu to a duel. He wanted to win, but he didn’t want to maim the man.

Shamed, Master Clown Shoes leaves behind his own teacher, as well as his distraught students. He finds his way to a remote brewery in the mountains, where he waits, quietly, anonymous but for his exceptionally large feet, pondering a path to be redeemed.


Ancient Hills

Perhaps redemption lies ahead? Master Clown Shoes enters the Ancient Hills a man with a mind full of pain and doubt. As he treks along the sight of a brewery surprises him. It rises majestically above the bleak landscape. Perhaps it will offer work, anonymity, and peace? And time to reflect about creating better days.
