Harpoon’s UFO Big Squeeze Shandy

Harpoons-UFO-Big-Squeeze-ShandyFrom the Brewer – “When we first started thinking of a UFO summer seasonal, we knew we had our work cut out for us. We loaded up the vans for the beach and spent days “researching” every combination of fresh fruit juice and beer we could think of until we discovered a combination that made our decision easy. Sweet with a hint of tartness, UFO Big Squeeze Shandy is perfect for all of your summer adventures!”

Great with Shellfish, seafood, soft cheeses, and green salads.

Leinenkugel’s BeerGarten Tart

Leinenkugel's-BeerGarten-TartBalanced, refreshing, subtly sweet, and tarty. This is our American take on a classic German biergarten favorite.

From the Brewer – “Leinenkugel’s® BeerGarten Tart® starts out with a snap of tartness balanced by a subtle sweetness from pale malts. It’s our take on a Berliner Weisse, a classic German biergarten summer favorite. Brewed with American wheat, BeerGarten Tart’s light body and refreshing finish are perfect for warm summer days.

Great with club sandwiches, pasta, salads or pizza flatbread.

Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy


From the Brewer – “A traditional shandy is beer mixed with a little something extra, like lemonade, soda or ginger ale. Leinenkugel’s® Grapefruit Shandy is our take on this tradition. Each batch begins with our traditional Weiss beer. We then combine it with natural white grapefruit flavor that adds a note of fresh-cut citrus to brighten a great day by the lake.

Great with light dishes like summer salads and vinaigrette citrus-marinated grilled shrimp and blueberry-lemon cheesecake bars.

Anchor Brewing Siason Spring Ale

Anchor-Brewing-Siason-Spring-AleA sharply refreshing Belgian-style ale with a California twist

From the Brewer – “Saisons originated with the rustic farmhouse ales of Wallonia, a mostly French-speaking region of Belgium. Bière de saison was brewed during the saison froide (cold season) for consumption during the warmer months. Today saisons are made and enjoyed year-round. As brewers, we were drawn to this beer style’s enigmatic history, the freedom it offers, and the creativity it demands.

Anchor Saison™ Spring Ale is a traditional Belgian-style saison with a California twist. The distinctiveness of roasted Belgian wheat malt is enhanced by the peppery, clove-like flavors of a locally cultured saison-style yeast. And, for this release, we chose three California ingredients—lemongrass, lemon peel, and ginger—whose synergy adds a tangy crispness and herbal spiciness to this sharply refreshing, uniquely Californian saison.

The completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 and the Southern Pacific’s “Sunset Route” in 1883, coupled with the advent of refrigerated railcars, made it possible for California brewers and farmers to ship their products out of state. Local artists and lithographers were engaged to create imaginative labels for bottles of beer and crates of fruit. Many of the latter featured colorful vignettes of California scenery framed by mouthwatering images of fresh citrus.

Inspired by those early fruit-crate labels and the ingredients in this release of Anchor Saison™ Spring Ale, our label features an original hand-colored 1873 lithograph of the Golden Gate as seen from Telegraph Hill. Our saison’s California ingredients—hand-drawn by our label artist Jim Stitt—adorn it, creating a uniquely Anchor label for a uniquely Anchor brew.”

Flying Dog Tropical Bitch Belgian Style IPA

Flying-Dog-Tropical-Bitch-Belgian-Style-IPAFrom the Brewer – “For years she’s gone walking. And time after glorious time, she never disappoints. We released Raging Bitch for our 20th anniversary, so a spin on the Belgian IPA you know and love only made sense for our 25th.”
