About the brew….
It started as chance, a sandwich shop encounter between a band and a fan. It ended as the Clutch Collaboration. This pleasing, two-part potion was brewed with chocolate and black malts for a rich and roasty overtone, then fused with a dry, substratum of sour for a bold and audacious flavor.
Black as night, this beer is blended at 80% stout, 20% dark sour wood beer for a collaboration that begins with a sour edge and finishes with a big, dark malt character, lingering, sweet on your palate.

Meet Martin. He is the new face of evil in the upcoming film “Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence.” He would like to show the latest deal of the week from Cattle Decapitation, showcasing their film inspired “Inhuman Centipede” shirt for only $5.99.
Check out the poster and trailer below for the movie, which comes out in limited release on October 7th. My suggestion? Buy this shirt and wear it to a screening. Better hurry, the film has already been banned in the UK due to its intense subject matter.
The Ocean have posted footage from their extremely long awaited DVD project. This looks fantastic! Check it out below:
The band also offered up this quote regarding the delay and release date:
“…. and yes, that DVD. We’ve been speaking about it for a while now, right? Well, be assured that it IS still coming. The project has grown tremendously over the course of the past months. We have filmed the Heliocentric record release show in March 2010, the show at the museum for musical instruments in Berlin in January 2011, the show at the London Garage on our last tour and Summer Breeze Festival in their entirety. We’ve also had our documentary filmer Alex with us most of the time, and he has pointed his one eye on everything we’ve been through, the good, the bad and the vulgar…
Alex will also be with us for the upcoming tours. We have collected so much quality material by now that we’re thinking about turning everything into a documentary movie more than a mere music DVD. By the end of the year the “collection” process will be finished and we will spend the first half of next year on finalizing everything.”
Sounds like it will be much worth the wait.
In the meantime, snag some awesome designs from the The Ocean official merch store.
