The Traveler Beer Co. in Burlington, Vt., has declared 2013 as the "Year of the Shandy." The brewery, formed last year, has released two year-round brews: Curious Traveler Shandy, a wheat ale with lemon and lime, and Tenacious Traveler, a wheat beer with ginger and clover honey. The beers are available in Ohio.
"You're going to see big growth in the shandy beer category this year, with a number of new players coming to the table," Alan Newman, founder of
Traveler Beer, said in a prepared statement. "It's our mission to introduce drinkers to a craft beer Shandy that is deliciously refreshing, sessionable, and true to the spirit of the American craft beer movement."
