With darkness setting in, and the wind howling from the oncoming
hurricane, I decided to try two samples from The House of Shandy Beer Co.
Thus, Hurricane Shandy.
(Insert chuckle here.
Curious Traveler Shandy is a wheat beer brewed with lemon
and lime. Tenacious Traveler is also a
wheat beer, but brewed with ginger and clover honey. They are similarly refreshing, balanced and
nuanced without the spicing being too overt.
I enjoyed the Tenacious Traveler a little more.
I have had a shandy or two on a warm summer’s day. I can say without the slightest reddening of
the cheeks that these were as good or better than any shandy I have the pleasure
If you enjoy shandy, you would do well to try them. While I
am a sucker and a fool for nicely packaged beverages and clever marketing ploys,
the whimsical traveler theme, false mustaches and thoughtfully designed informational
s go hand in hand with an equally engaging product.
Everyone have a safe and dry (rain-wise) evening.
