All about shandy / Radler beer
What's the difference between Radler and shandy beer?
These two terms are often interchangeable in today's society, but there is a distinct difference. They both start with a pale lager, but the difference lies in the fruit juices combined with the lager. Shandy beer is typically a 50-50 combination of a pale lager and lemonade or lemon-lime soda. A Radler beer uses citrus and other fruit juices to achieve its distinct flavors. The term "shandy" dates back as far as the 1850s in Great Britain to refer to beer mixed with ginger ale. Radler is German for cyclist, and the drink name is coined after a Bavarian tavern owner who ran low on beer near the end of a cycling race in Germany. He decided to mix what was left of the beer with citrus juices to keep the cyclists and patrons satisfied.
Which foods to serve with seasonal beer
These summer drinks are at their best when served ice cold. Foods that pair well with fruit beer include fresh-caught fish and seafood, steak, chicken and just about anything off the grill. Add a side of fruit salad to bring out the fruity essence of drinks like the Leinenkugel® Grapefruit Shandy. Add a touch of mint to lemon and citrus beverages to bring out their flavor. Consider a refreshing Stiegl Radler Grapefruit to sip while snacking on pizza, chips or food that's got a little kick. Enjoy these drinks by themselves or sip with the summer food of your choosing. Whether spending the day fishing at the lake or kicking back by the pool, relish the fruity sensations in beers from brands such as Samuel Adams®, Bud Light® and Hoppin' Frog to help you cool down on a hot summer's day.
