(Chicago,IL) – Revolution Brewing is introducing Freedom Lemonade, a new evolution of the brewery’s Freedom Session Sours made with real fruit. Freedom Lemonade sparkles with homemade flavor, joining bright lemon sweetness with a naturally tart, effervescent finish. It’s refreshing and sessionable at 4.5% ABV.
“A cold glass of lemonade is such a classic American drink. It has that cane-sugar sweetness, and the tartness and unmistakable aroma of freshly-squeezed lemons,” Revolution Brewmaster Jim Cibak said. “Our brewers crafted Freedom Lemonade to deliver all of those familiar qualities in a beer.”
Freedom Lemonade is made by blending sour ale with cane sugar, lemon juice concentrate, and natural lemon flavor. This perfect blend of ingredients brings the character and refreshment of a pitcher of lemonade to a can of craft beer. Like Revolution’s other fruit-forward beers, Freedom Lemonade will appeal to drinkers who typically reach for a seltzer or white wine option.
“We’re brewers to the core and we’ve never been interested in making a seltzer. It’s not a radler, it’s not a shandy, it’s a true lemonade beer,” Revolution Chairman of the Party Josh Deth said. “Freedom Lemonade is our alternative to the alternative.”
Freedom Lemonade will debut at retailers in six-packs of 12-ounce cans beginning in January 2022, and launch on draft in March. Distribution will extend across the brewery’s Midwest footprint.
