New Beer: Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy

A couple weekends ago at the beach Jonah came home with two six packs of this:

I had no clue what it was and I’d never heard of it. But, in honor of DC Beer Week, I thought I’d share this summer-only gem of a find with you.

It’s a wheat blend beer with natural lemon flavor in it. It’s a hefeweizen mixed with lemonade. It’s a beer Arnold Palmer. It’s Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy.

And with a name like that, how can you resist. Ladies, indulge…it’s only 130 calories and zero fat. Guys, get your koozie. I realize Summer Shandy isn’t necessarily the most masculine name in the world.

Enjoy! But enjoy soon – distribution stops at the end of August!

  1. Hmm… I had a tough time with this beer. I couldn’t get past the Lemon Pledge/Murphy’s Oil Soap smell. I have no problem with a Shandy. They’re delicious when done right. I haven’t made one since at least last summer, but I remember it being pretty tasty. Half Paul Newman’s Lemonade/Half Pilsner Urquel. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

    Cheers!

  2. Been drinking Leine’s for 20 years. You can get the “seasonals” at just about any beer store. The year rounds are tough. I get them carried from WI. Just finished my last original saturday.
