Despite the four feet of snow on the ground, we’re officially welcoming back Short Pants Lemon Shandy this week! Short Pants proved to be a universal crowd-pleaser in 2018, even amongst the most skeptical of beer-drinkers, so we’re thrilled to usher it back and delight even more beer drinkers in 2019.
Clocking in at 4.5% and 15 IBU, this crisp, thirst-quenching, lemony ale is brewed with wheat and natural lemon ingredients. Essentially a beer cocktail, a shandy typically consists of a relatively neutral base beer with added juice or concentrate. Unlike other shandies on the market, we use natural lemon products such as lemon zest, lemon concentrate, and lemon puree to provide a more authentic, handcrafted shandy that doesn’t taste artificial or sugary sweet.
To make sure thirsts are sufficiently quenched through the warmer months, Short Pants Lemon Shandy will be available from now through August. Starting now, it will be on tap in our Northeast MPLS taproom and available in both 6- and 12-packs of 12 oz cans at liquor stores throughout MN. You can expect to find Short Pants running rampant on draft lines at rooftop bars, golf courses, and patios across the state all Summer long!
