Milwaukee is a beer city. From Miller to PBR to Lakefront, the history of beer runs deep in the Cream City. As of a couple years ago it’s starting to run even deeper.
The long running affinity for traditional German styles is still as prevalent as ever (you can’t swing a lauter tun without finding Lakefront Riverwest on tap). But there’s a new class of brewpubs popping up in the Milwaukee area that are cranking out some wonderful modern styles, including The Fermentorium’s Juice Packets IPA.
Juice Packets is a hazy, citrusy IPA that is single-hopped with the ever-popular Citra hop. And its low bitterness makes it an IPA for those that don’t normally care for IPAs.
