CLEVELAND — Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) announces the release of new year-round Crushworthy Lo-Cal Citrus Wheat, a refreshing low calorie ale brewed with real citrus purée and peel.
Releasing March 1 throughout GLBC’s distribution footprint, Crushworthy Lo-Cal Citrus Wheat is a “better-for-you” Wheat Ale with just 105 calories, 4.0% ABV, a sessionable light body, and bursts of citrus aroma and flavor thanks to the addition of orange and lemon purée and peel. Crushworthy will release in 12 oz. Can 6-Packs and 15-Packs, and Draft.
Crushworthy Lo-Cal Citrus Wheat is GLBC’s first entry into the low calorie space, and joins the brewery’s growing portfolio of year-round offerings in cans. “We’re excited to bring another unique style to our year-round brand family,” says CEO Mark King. “Crushworthy is lighter, sessionable, and fruit-forward with a really delicious and crushable flavor. It fills a need for active and wellness-minded drinkers who don’t want to sacrifice craft, body, and taste when choosing a beverage.”
Crushworthy’s can artwork features a tattoo-inspired illustration of a juicy citrus heart by artist Sam Hadley, framed by bright yellow accents. The artwork speaks to Crushworthy’s playful and crushable nature, as the beer makes a perfect match for year-round recreation and relaxation.
Crushworthy Lo-Cal Citrus Wheat is available now in the GLBC gift shop and releases March 1 throughout GLBC’s distribution footprint in 12 oz. Can 6-Packs, 15-Packs, and Draft. Customers can also find Crushworthy Lo-Cal Citrus Wheat in GLBC’s new Gimme Five!
