Non-Alcoholic Shandies and Radlers for a festive Father's Day
If you follow us on the regular you know that non-alcoholic beer is an unusual mixer for us to use when crafting our zero-proof cocktails. However, we felt like with the emergence of some truly spectacular non-alcoholic beer hitting the market it was time to pull out our mixology kit and mix up some truly delicious shandies and radlers that even dad will love.
For the citrus loving dad, our Blood Orange & Grapefruit Radler is refreshing and tart. Perfect for a treat after a day of chasing the kids around or after a long summer hike. Athletic Brewing is a favorite among athletes! If you're hiking, backpacking or camping with dad, this is an easy drink to bring along. Pre-mix your juices and keep your bubbly and IPA in a cooler or cool sleeve and drink around the campfire.
Blood Orange & Grapefruit Radler
2 oz fresh Grapefruit & Blood Orange juice
In a pitcher squeeze fresh ruby red grapefruit juice, fresh blood orange juice and pour in DRY Blood Orange Botanical Bubbly. Mix gently.
In a pint or tall glass pour in the juice mixture and top with Athletic Brewing Run Wild IPA.
If you and dad like something a little more fruity, our Watermelon Lime Shandy is the perfect hot weather drink to quench thirst after all those cannon balls dad likes to land in the pool.
Watermelon Lime Shandy
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
4-5 oz. Partake Pale Ale
In a glass add lime juice, DRY Watermelon Botanical Bubbly and gently stir. Top with Partake Brewing Pale Ale. Garnish with a lime slice if desired.
Maybe the weather isn't in full summer mode where you are. If you still need something a tad more cozy, our Cranberry Ginger Shandy is equally delicious in the summer and in the fall.
Cranberry Ginger Shandy
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
4-5 oz. Gruvi Pale Ale

If dad likes his beer and an occasional Old Fashioned this is the perfect combination of those flavor profiles. A little bitter, a little citrus, and a whole lot of delicious.
Aromatic Citrus Shandy
