You Say Shandy. We Say Radler.

Beer and lemon are natural partners, and a bottle of Josephsbrau Radler easily bolsters that claim. The beer in this beverage is brewed using Hallertau hops (from Bavaria), and is 90% pilsner malt, 5% Munich malt, and 5% Carahell malt. But that’s only half the story: Fizzy lemon soda makes up the other half of the bottle’s contents, yielding a slightly citrusy, german-style beer that’s 4% alcohol by volume. In Britain, this combination is commonly referred to as a shandy. In Germany and its environs, it’s known as a Radler (literally, cyclist); since this one uses German hops and beer crafted in a Bavarian style, we’ve gone with Radler. You’re welcome to call it a shandy if that makes you shappy.

This hazy-yellow pilsner-style brew includes subtle notes of lemon flavor, which lend a very refreshing quality to each sip. We are entering BBQ season, and what better combo than a bottle of Radler and whatever you’re tossing on the grill? Steaks, burgers, fish, or chicken… all great with a chilled Josephsbrau Radler. We’re selling six-packs of 12 ounce bottles of Josephsbrau Radler for $5.99*, plus deposit where required. That’s a value that suggests Trader Joe’s just may be the best (beer and) lemonade stand around.
