SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) officially announced this week that Squeeze Box IPA with Grapefruit will be released as the brewery’s newest Winter Seasonal beginning on Tuesday, November 1.
Squeeze Box IPA with Grapefruit arrives as the latest addition to SweetWater Brewing’s Catch n’ Release Series, their lineup of seasonal brews. Due to the recent spike in popularity of fruited IPAs across the country and the success of SweetWater’s summer release of Goin’ Coastal IPA with Pineapple, the brewery decided to revisit this idea with “the seasonally appropriate update of grapefruit.” Just as the name suggests, this winter offering is a juicy India Pale Ale boasting “five tropical hop additions and dosed with a shot of . . . grapefruit.” Squeeze Box finishes bright and crisp, and weighs in at 6.1% ABV and 45 IBUs.
Squeeze Box IPA with Grapefruit officially releases on November 1 and will be available through January. This brew will be available in 12 oz. cans, 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, in the Winter Variety Mixed 12-Pack of cans and bottles, and on draft. You will be able to find Squeeze Box at your favorite craft beer locations in Alabama, Florida and throughout SweetWater Brewing’s distribution area. This offering is sure to fly off of shelves all season long, so be sure to secure your stash when you can to get your winter hop fix. Prost!

LowRYEder is available only in the Winter Variety Pack of 12 oz. bottles and on tap at the brewery.
