ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) — Rohrbach Brewing Co. is set to release a new summer beer next month.
In a news release, the brewer announced “Radle On” will be available starting mid-May in Rochester. The beer, a lemon radler, is described by Rohrbachs as “a crisp ale blended with fresh lemon for a light, refreshing pint.”
In the news release, Rohrbachs adds:
More commonly known today as a shandy, the radler style has an interesting origin in itself. The drink was invented by innkeeper Franz Kugler in a small town outside of Munich, Germany. When cyclists announced their return to the inn after a long day, Kugler realized he didn’t have enough beer for his patrons. To stretch the beer, he blended it with fresh lemonade and the rest is history.
The beer is part of the brewery’s small-batch Neoteric Series. “Radle On” will be available in 16 oz four-packs at stores across upstate New York.
Rohrbach Brewing Co. has locations on Railroad Street in Rochester and on Buffalo Road in Gates.
