About a month ago I wrote about about Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy as my Beer of the Week right about here. It was amazing, I know. If you didn’t read it, well shame on you.
Luckily enough for me, the fine folks at Leinenkugel’s asked if wanted to dip into their new Grapefruit Shandy. After I let out a small chuckle and asked if they knew me, I mean really knew me…we agreed that it would be a good decision for us both if I sampled their wares. I loved the Summer, so I figured I would love the Grapefruit, too.
I was right. It be awesome.
As I mentioned before, a traditional shandy is beer mixed with a little something extra, like lemonade, soda or ginger ale. Leinenkugel’s® Grapefruit Shandy is our take on this tradition. Each batch begins with their tasty, tasty traditional Weiss beer. The fine brewmaster then combine it with natural white grapefruit flavor that adds a note of fresh-cut citrus to brighten a great day by the lake.
The result…pure summer refreshment heaven. No really, this beer is like summer in a bottle. Cool, refreshing, crisp, and easy to drink. It’s pretty darn amazing. I have to say, I think I may even like it more than the Summer, simply because I love grapefruit and the bite and uniqueness of the Grapefruit Shandy is superior! It’s truly a beer you could drink all day…grilling, at the pool, at the beach, wherever it’s hot and good times are called for.
Here’s some more deets on the brew from the masters before you run out and go pick some up.
Dude…if you can’t decide, don’t even…they have a Shandy Sampler. You can have your lemon and your grapefruit, too. Hello, magic! This is pure, enjoy life, hammock and nap time, baby. I’m all about it!
