Hurry to Denver Beer Co. if you want to get a taste of Clown Question, Bro, a Canadian lager-style beer that DBC brewed after the Washington Nationals' Bryce Harper called a query regarding his favorite beer "a clown question."

But the rookie phenom took the homage in stride, and even called Denver Beer Co. to ask if the owners would donate proceeds from Clown Question, Bro sales to the Celena Hollis Memorial Fund. "Of course, we said yes," says DBC co-owner Charlie Berger.

Says beernow:

This is awesome. First Ghost Face Killah, now Harper. Something about CO micro brews engenders good will. Oh, unless of course unless you are Gordon Biersch.

Denver Beer Co. only made a limited supply Clown Question; hurry over if you want to try it. Of course, you could always make a donation without the beer; read how here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
