Thanks, Rob. A kid on the "Maple - Ash - Farmer - Wilson Neighborhood" FB page said the Native on Broadway & Dorsey has it on tap. I just called over there an confirmed :)

At the Native yesterday . . .
Tastes like a Summer Shandy that's totally over powered by cranberry, with sadly the barest hint of ginger :(
Don't go out of your way :(

I wish I could be surprised. Leinie's shandies flat-out miss the mark for me. The lemon one doesn't taste as much like a true shandy, as it does a beer with some Country Time lemonade mix thrown in.

ONE Summer Shandy after a round of golf is great. Two . . . not so much. But that first one . . . mmm

That said, is there anyplace in the EV that you recommend for a proper shandy? We have a heat wave coming in next week, I might have to hit the links

I think Pig & Pickle can do one. I have them all the time at Welcome Diner; I order a Session, a grapefruit soda, and a glass of ice, and go to town.

I've fallen in love with shandys. I recently made some ginger beer, and then stumbled across a recipe for ginger shandys. I am officially hooked!!

Use the wheat beer of your choice. A Belgian wheat is recommended, but that's not really my jam.
