Deschutes Brewery releases Lil’ Squeezy Juicy Ale in Cans

Deschutes Brewery has a new hazy IPA in 12oz cans called Lil’ Squeezy Juicy Ale, but what makes this one especially unique is it’s a “Gluten Reduced” beer. Think of Lil’ Squeezy as the younger, more health conscious kid brother/sister of Fresh Haze IPA.

Deschutes Brewery adds Brewers Clarex, an enzyme that breaks down the specific gluten protein found in beer.

Deschutes says they test every gluten-reduced beer in their state-of-the-art lab to ensure that it has less than 20 ppm of gluten.

The brewers notes on this beer say: Refreshingly juicy. Effortlessly drinkable. Freshly Squeezed. No fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Lil’ Squeezy Juicy Ale is packed with Nugget, Citra, Azacca, El Dorado and Chinook hops and is just 5% abv and 40 IBU’s. 12oz cans of Lil’ Squeezy are now available.
