Lamplighter "Short Squeeze" Wheat Ale w/Blood Orange - Cambridge, MA
Short Squeeze is an American-Style Wheat Ale brewed with 50% wheat malt and 800 lbs of blood orange. Malt-balanced and refreshing, this quaffable ale balances notes of fresh bread with earthy hop bitterness and finishes with a kiss of tart citrus.
Lamplighter is a brewery and taproom located in downtown Cambridge. Their focus is on aroma-packed and flavor-driven beers, with an emphasis on New England IPAs, barrel-aged sours, and special seasonal. They brew a variety of one-off batches that allow them to pursue their various whims, and they don’t shy away from a funk, twists on tradition, and unique ingredients.
Lamplighter has a 10,000 sq. ft. facility that used to be Metric Systems, a wonderful neighborhood auto repair shop owned by a father and son team. They took a chance in 2015 and chose to lease the building to a start-up rather than sell to a developer and opened our doors to the public in the fall of 2016.
