Anyone can mix a shandy, but brewers often do it better. These are the ones we’re stocking our cooler with.
Harpoon UFO Big Squeeze Shandy: Grapefruit juice stands in for lemons, lacing playfully tart and perfectly pink fruity notes through light, crackery malts.
The Traveler Illusive Traveler: A shot of grapefruit and a twist of lemon peel create a vibrant, tropical swallow with a refreshingly sharp bite. Its sibling, Curious Traveler; leans lemon-lime. Watch for Jack-O- Lantern pumpkin shandy in late summer!
Dundee Summer Shandy: A splash of spritzy lemon kicks off the drink, while bready, grainy malts remind you it’s still beer.
Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy: Lively, juicy lemon illuminates the soft, bready malts of the sessionable Midwestern classic.
Saranac Shandy: No bells and whistles: This one’s a lager-lemonade blend that shines with summery simplicity.
Amstel Radler: Put down that lemonade soda: This fizzy lemon bomb is perfect alternative for the sugary (and woefully un-alcoholic) summer go-to.
Narragansett Del’s Shandy: Inspired by the famous frozen lemonade, this cool can is loaded with dry-sweet lemon-oil flavor in a curiously clean, tart swallow.
