Looking for a refreshing new beer to try this blazing hot weekend? If you’re in Ontario, you’re in luck as local craft beer company Old Tomorrow released the first craft shandy to be brewed in the province earlier this week.
Combining Old Tomorrow brew with the Muskoka Dry Pale Ginger Ale recipe from 1873, the Old Tomorrow Honey Ginger Shandy is a beer cocktail with only 3% alcohol. It features natural honey and lemon flavours along with botanical extracts.
“Our Honey Ginger Shandy lets you soak up the ultimate taste of summer. It’s both zesty and invigorating, making it a great alternative to sweeter radlers and lighter beers. The low alcohol makes it perfect for parties,” mother-son co-founders Pat and Ian Macdonald said in a statement.
For those unfamiliar with Old Tomorrow beer, it’s the (very Canadian) one with Sir John A. Macdonald on the can. Macdonald, the first prime minister of Canada, had the nickname “Old Tomorrow”. Along with the new Honey Ginger Shandy, Old Tomorrow has three other products on the market: Original Canadian Pale Ale, Track 85 Lagered Ale and Monty’s Golden Ryed Ale.
