A radler recipe that’s as carefree as summer itself.
Fresh grapefruit juice and lemon soda, paired with the added dimension of a citrus-forward IPA is pretty much a no-brainer.
A traditional radler is beer blended with lemonade, sparkling lemonade, or lemon-lime soda and was originally conceptualized in 1922 when a German innkeeper named Franz Kugler found an ingenious way to stretch his beer supply for a herd of bikers who unexpectedly arrived after a long ride from Munich.
With low ABV (usually only 2% – 4.5%) enjoy kicking back a few a super hot day. Pre biking session not required.
