After launching single flavor of Mango in its Clean Line Hard Seltzer last year, 10 Barrel Brewing expanded this lineup with three additional flavors this year. Cherry-Lime, Huckleberry, and Blackberry-Cucumber join Mango as part of the year-round Clean Line Hard Seltzer Variety Pack.
Coming in at 100 calories and 5% ABV per 12oz can, Clean Line was fermented to offer a variety of flavors for those that want a sessionable adult beverage but are concerned a bit about their calorie intake. Each can of Clean Line is low in sugar, under 1 gram, and

We will stick with 10 Barrel’s Cucumber Crush when seeking out the cucumber flavor!
