Shock Top Brewing to release new seasonal beer

DBR Staff Writer Published 16 March 2012

Missouri-based Shock Top Brewing will release its latest seasonal beer, Shock Top Lemon Shandy, starting 19 March through the end of July.

The new seasonal beer is a smooth wheat beer complemented by spices and natural lemonade flavor, claims the company.

The beer has 4.2% ABV and will be available in the US in six- and 12-packs of bottles and 12-packs of cans and draught.

Shock Top brew master Jill Vaughn said for years, brewers around the world have experimented with fruit-flavored beer mixers, like shandys and radlers, which have been popular concoctions in Britain and Germany.

"When the temperatures start to warm up, you appreciate the added level of refreshment a lemonade flavor can bring to your beer, and Shock Top's citrusy base provided the ideal starting point for creating this new recipe. We definitely stayed true to Shock Top's wheat beer essence, while crafting a new flavor for adults to enjoy this summer," Vaughn said.

The latest product is the first seasonal rollout for the Shock Top family in 2012.
