Beer Chat: Curious Traveler Shandy

You’re likely to find Curious Traveler in bottles but I managed to find it on draft! And it’s even better!

Summer 2013 is dwindling down. Cue sad face ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But there was a refreshing, summery brew that brought a smile to my face a few times this season. No, Curious Traveler Shandy probably wonโ€™t win any โ€œbest beerโ€ awards, and it probably is not high on a beer aficionadoโ€™s list but when the weather got steamy it sure did the trick.
First, if you donโ€™t know what a shandy is, it is typically a lighter beer (wheat beers or lagers) mixed with lemonade, some type of fruit juice, and Iโ€™ve even had it with lemon juice and Sprite. The Traveler Beer Co. out of Burlington, Vermont brews its Curious Traveler using wheat beer, fresh lemons and limes, and lemon peel.
I sort of wish I had more to say about Curious Traveler except the reiterated, โ€œitโ€™s so refreshing!โ€ It comes in at a drinkable 4.4% ABV and I have faith that YOU could knock back a six pack on your own if you like the flavored stuff. All you need now is a good end of summer, early fall cookout and a beautiful day.
