Curious Traveler lemon shandy, Illusive Traveler grapefruit ale, and Forbidden Traveler apple ale are now available.
We at The Traveler Beer Company are excited to be offering one of the most refreshing beer styles in the world. Despite being readily available in Europe for generations, shandys have been relatively undiscovered in our “curious” US beer culture. Until now.
We are dedicated to bringing these refreshing craft beers to all curious beer drinkers. We look forward to continuing to produce a great tasting shandy AND to push the boundaries on what a shandy can be.
At the end of the day, we’re a group of beer fans who like shandys and will work hard to brew some great beers, with the added pleasure of introducing a new style of beer to the US. Join us, it’s quite a refresher.
The shandy tradition dates back to the 17th century and is typically beer mixed with a citrus-flavored soda or carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale or cider. Today, English publicans pour a blend of traditional English ale with various lemon and lime beverages for their patrons though real lemons or limes are rarely used.
Our flagship, The Curious Traveler is a fresh, bold year-round, craft-brewed, all malt wheat ale infused with real lemons and limes. This shandy has a lively fruity flavor and a powerful “throw your head back” fresh lemon aroma.
In short – It’s Quite a Refresher!
