Are Radlers a thing your side of the Atlantic? It's like 7up but beer-ish.

Radlers and shandies are both things over here. They're the rebranding of wine coolers.

Miller discovered they owned an old, underperforming brewery by the name of Leinenkugel (which, amusingly, had previously purchased Blatz) so they made them produce "summer shandy." It's fuckin' Bartles & Jaymes minus the food coloring.

Who asked for Zima back anyway?

Odder  ·  331 days ago  ·  link  ·  

It was mentioned recently but that was in the context of how bad the 80's were so I don't think anyone wants it back. I'll take shandy over Zima for at least the fact that it makes me feel less sticky, not more.

they don't ring a bell for me but that doesn't mean much

i don't really drink anything except water other than maybe once every other week or so and my default special occasion drink is ginger ale and not beer
