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.
