The Harpoon Brewery announced its UFO Big Squeeze shandy, an unfiltered wheat beer blended with all natural grapefruit juice. This seasonal offering from the brewer’s UFO series, a line of unfiltered beers, has arrived just in time for summer in bottles, cans and on draft. Sweet with a hint of tartness, Big Squeeze shandy is a New England summer treat.
“Our UFO beers are about adventure and fun,” says Harpoon Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder Rich Doyle. “UFO Big Squeeze shandy is a refreshing complement to this great season in New England. The combination of grapefruit juice with unfiltered wheat beer is a fantastic blend. It will be a staple in my fridge for the next few months.”
