Victory Cage Radler will join the Downingtown, Pennsylvania based brewery’s lineup on May 1st.
For those a little unfamiliar, the word radler is German for “cyclist”. As beer history mentions – in 1922 Franz Xaver Kugler, owner of a Bavarian beerhaus, was running low on beer, with a bar full of 1,000’s of thirsty cyclists. In a pinch, he blended lemon-lime soda (which wasn’t selling anyway because his customers just wanted to drink) and dunkel lager, creating the radler beer, or shandy.
A shandy is a 50/50 mix of beer and lemonade. In the case of Victory Cage Radler, the brewery uses a light lager to blend with lemon extract.
The resulting beer is 3% alcohol by volume, perfect for your demanding cyclist guests, or just to drink on a hot day.
Victory Cage Radler will be available in 12 ounce bottles (in the variety pack) and 12 ounce cans.
