A Note on This Beer
Hops: Tangy Citra and orange-zesty Amarillo Hops. Dude… It’s Tasty: Bright and citrusy with a sweet flow of tropical berry flavor and a bitter bite on the finish. Mouthfeel says what? Soft on the tongue with a luxuriously smooth body, it’s like a juicebox for grownups.
On one fateful evening during their first year in operation, a thirsty hophead walked into Yellow Bridge Brewing. This man wanted one thing, and one thing only: Juice.
“What do you mean you don’t have any New England-style IPAs?!” he asked the barkeep. “I WANT JUICE!”
The bartender, stunned and unsure about what the lunatic might do next, ran to the back to find the brewers.
“Drop what you’re doing! We have to make a New England-style IPA — NOW!!” shouted the bartender in between heavy breaths. Of course, the brewers looked at him with big question marks over their heads, wondering, “Why? Who says?”
The bartender, sternly and authoritatively, pointed to the taproom behind him and exclaimed, “The Dude Wanted Juice!”
Okay, so maybe that isn’t quite how it went, but Yellow Bridge really did discover their knack for Hazy IPAs thanks to one dude’s request! And now, the bellies of local hopheads are drinking pint after deliciously hazy pint of Dude Wanted Juice.
Ever since this lusciously tropical treat stepped onto the scene, more and more people are looking to Yellow Bridge as an authority on juice in Western Pennsylvania. The local online news source, Next Pittsburgh, even lists them as the #3 Must Visit Brewery in the area!
Still, Yellow Bridge is so under-the-radar, the majority of hop-hungry craft fans in the Keystone State still haven’t caught onto Dude Wanted Juice.
And considering they’re nearly impossible to find outside of PA, I’ll bet even your craftiest buddies haven’t tread the Yellow Bridge road to juice either.
BA-user @Yancey82 puts it best: “You should have this [Hazy IPA], but you won’t, because you can’t find it.”
Except for today — today, when you ask for juice, you shall receive juice.
