The other night I had a delicious beer that’s perfect for summer. I was out with friends at Barleycorn’s Five Mile House in Lakeside Park. On tap was Pink Lemonade, a refreshing blend of two Leinenkugel’s beers :
Summer Shandy, a seasonal beer and the brewer’s version of a traditional German Radler, a combination of beer and German-style lemonade. Radler, which means “cyclist” in German, dates back to the early 1900s. The tale goes…a bar owner short on his beer supply became overwhelmed by a group of cyclists because they were thirsty from their travels. So the bar owner mixed whatever beer he had with lemonade. Over the years, the recipe has added Sprite or 7-Up instead of lemonade. Hmm…I see a little recipe testing in my future.
Berry Weiss, a year-round Leinenkugel’s beer that contains the flavors of blackberries, elderberries and loganberries.
This beer was very refreshing and thirst-quenching. Fitting for the end of a 95-degree day. And it did look a lot like pink lemonade (my pictures did not turn out well so I apologize for not being able to share).
I loved the taste but I don’t think I could drink too many because of the sweetness. It’s a great summer option though if you’re looking to try a different twist on beer.
