What do you reckon to that, eh? I reckon shandy has it’s place, but only if it’s made with rubbish beer.
As a brewer I couldn’t bear to think of someone making a shandy up with one of my creations…surely that’s what Fosters, Carling, John Smiths and all the other mass-market stuff is there for? They’re the beers to have Lemonade “tops” in – especially if you don’t like the taste of beer…
If you want to drink sweet fizzy stuff with a tiny bit of alcohol in why not try WKD, alco-pops, alcoholic ginger beer and all that other stuff?
I guess you could mix quality beers into some sort of godawful beer cocktail, but what’s the point? I know Lambic and Gueze are blended, but that’s just because they have to – for quality control.
You wouldn’t have a Laphroaig single malt and coke, would you? (Please don’t tell me you do. That’s just not on…)
