The shandy was first introduced by Franz Kugler after a bicycle race in Munich in 1922. His tavern was overrun with thirsty cyclists, so he cut his beer with lemonade and soda so they didn’t run out. This inspired Leinenkugel’s to combine their Weiss beer with natural lemonade flavor to create Summer Shandy®, as well as a variety of other refreshing beers.
Summer Shandy is Leinenkugel’s own unique take on Franz Kugler’s original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is a traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer. In 2012, Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival® in the Fruit Wheat Beer category.
Summer Shandy is now available in a variety of packages. From the traditional 6 pack bottle to 24oz cans and kegs, the perfect package of Summer Shandy is available to fit any consumer’s needs. Ask your Sales Representative for more details.
