Summer Shandy by Lienenkugel Brewing Co (ABV. %4.2)
The Leinenkugel Family, based out of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin has been brewing beer since 1867, and they’ve gotten pretty damn good at it. The Leinenkugel’s ‘Summer Shandy’ is without a doubt one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted. This refreshing wheat beer is only made better by the infusions of lemonade. Standing at 4.2% alcohol, it isn’t a heavy beer, which makes it great for sitting out on the deck and sippin’, whether it’s noon or happy hour.
For those of you who are, like us, relatively uneducated about beer, the Summer Shandy is a wheat beer. Other well known wheat beers include Shock Top and Blue Moon. These types of beers are smooth and easy to drink, and aren’t very bitter or harsh.
The Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy is high recommended, but not entirely common, so keep an eye out for it whenever you’re in the store.
