How Does it Feel?

November 10, 2017

It’s one thing to know change is coming, but it’s usually difficult to know how that change will feel. Ten days ago, The Mass Bay Brewing Company (the parent of Harpoon, UFO, and now Clown Shoes) acquired the brand I spent so much of my career building.  Finalizing the transaction was an epic, six month […]

What the hell?  Really? Sellouts! They’re going to be “Harpoonized!” Ok, everybody, please take a breath.

Focus On Quality and Experimentation

September 4, 2015

Almost six years in and we continue to receive venom and disrespect, mostly just for being Clown Shoes. As an example, yesterday this e-mail appeared: It would be fiting for you to produce a high alcohol beer called “Small Mind, Smaller Dick” for men who drink Clown Shoe Beers.

Billy, The Homeless Chess Master

March 3, 2015

William Collins has played chess with me for over twenty years. When the weather is warm, we meet at the stone chess tables in Harvard Square, shaded by the trees in front of Au Bon Pain. I’m pretty good, expert level. He’s way better. Billy has been homeless since 1997. It never occurred to me […]
