Bridgeport’s Summer Squeeze

The name is catchy enough.  Bridgeport Brewing is adding “Summer Squeeze” to their seasonal lineup.  The beer features Yuzu, a fruit that looks like an yellow orange originating in China.  The fruit grows on a small thorny tree.  Flavor of the Yuzu is tart, with some resemblances to Mandarin orange.  Yuzu is used in a lot of dishes where lemon would have been present.  Lemongrass, the second ingredient featured in this upcoming release is native to the Philippines.  Lemongrass is very citrusy.  There’s a reason Bridgeport calls Squeeze a “Bright Ale.”

Meet your new Summer Squeeze.  The refreshing brew infused with lemongrass and yuzu, the exotic asian citrus fruit.  The result is bright and crisp with a complex citrus finishe. Perfect for hot days.
