Insight Garden is a brewery known for a beer range that is globally inspired and locally crafted. In addition to best-selling beers like its 'Phantom Taxi' IPA and 'Sunken City' -- a beer that features an unexpected mix of saison and sauvignon blanc grapes -- the brand also carries a yuzu pale ale called 'Hell Chicken.'

The pale ale is locally crafted in the heart of Minneapolis and boasts a bold flavor profile, provided by its unexpected fruit ingredient. Used vastly in Asian dishes, yuzu is a yellow fruit boasting a tart, citrus flavor. While its uses in Japanese and Korean cuisines are mostly centered around alcoholic and fermented drinks, it is also a go-to ingredient when creating desserts and sweet garnishes like marmalade.

Insight Garden's yuzu pale ale boasts an unexpected flavor and makes the popular Japanese fruit more accessible to North American audiences.
