Alter Brewing Co. Releases Heavy Squeeze Unfiltered Lemon Wheat Ale

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — Alter Brewing Company bolstered its array of seasonal beers with the release of fan favorite Heavy Squeeze in 6-packs. The unfiltered lemon wheat ale is the first of four in the seasonal series to be released in 2020. This will be the first time it’s seeing package distribution.

Heavy Squeeze debuted as a resounding success for Alter last year and became one of the fastest selling draft beers they’ve ever produced. A serious zing of lemon flavor combined with a balanced sweetness resonated deeply with taproom visitors. Requests for its return persisted throughout the rest of 2019, resulting in its addition to the official 2020 beer calendar. Availability for Heavy Squeeze is scheduled for March through June.

Heavy Squeeze, along with the rest of Alter’s year-round and seasonal offerings, can be found throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and suburbs. Distribution is through Lakeshore Beverage and Schamberger Brothers, Inc.
