A Chicago local favorite, Goose Island Beer Co., is prepared to release the next potential summer beverage hit. Goose Island 312 Lemonade Shandy is in line to compete with the heavy favorite: Leinenkugel Summer Shandy.
312 Lemonade Shandy has a 4.2% ABV which directly matches the Summer Shandy and is described as a wheat ale with natural lemon flavor.
This beer is reportedly making its debut on March 1st and looks to be the number one competitor to the Leinenkugel classic. Summer Shandy is one of my favorite go-to beers in the summer and it always pairs well with grilled burgers and chicken. There is a very steep slope to climb, so Goose Island better have brought their A-game.
Undoubtedly, we will be trying this out and releasing a detailed review of the potential summertime blockbuster experience here at On Tap Sports Net. Stay tuned!
