CLUTCH Performs Brand New Song At Beer-Launch Party (Video)

American beer masters New Belgium brewing company have teamed up with Maryland-based veteran songwriters and touring icons CLUTCH to brew, bottle and distribute the brand new CLUTCH beer! The 9% alcohol by volume dark sour ale joins New Belgium's Lips Of Faith Series, adding to a beer family which already includes the highly popular Fat Tire Ale, which is now sold in over 32 of the 48 continental United States. The beer is available in 22 oz. bottles and a limited amount of kegs.

New Belgium and CLUTCH (the band) officially unleashed the ale last Sunday night (September 18) at a very special kickoff event at the Red Palace in Washington D.C. at which members of CLUTCH and their label Weathermaker Music were present.

CLUTCH initially intended to play just a six-or-so-song acoustic set, including a new track at this time called "Newt". But since everyone was in rather good spirits, the crowd was treated to several full-on electric numbers such as "The Devil And Me", "The Yeti", "Elephant Riders", "Big News I" and "Big News II".

Video footage of CLUTCH performing the above-mentioned new song which was listed simply as "Newt" on the band's setlist at last Sunday's event can be seen below (courtesy of Metal Chris of
