This favorite of Charles Dickens is an interesting English twist on the original Radler or Shandy. Feel free to experiment with the ratios and throw in a dash or two or orange bitters, lemon juice, or other citrus flavors to round out the profile.


1/2 pint English bitter or pub ale of choice
1/2 pint ginger beer

Preparation: How to make a Shandygaff

  • Fill a pint glass or stein halfway with the beer, then fill the rest of the way with the ginger beer.
