The Shandy’s are out, it’s the end of April. I laugh every time I see them appear, by the time pumpkin beers show up, the shandy’s will be piled to the ceiling in a corner or end of an aisle with cut rate prices to get rid of them, and the process repeats itself with the pumpkin ales. It’s a vicious cycle. Anyone in retail/distribution that can explain why these keep appearing year after year in bulk only to collect dust until Labor Day has come and gone.Who do these beers appeal to? Is it the straight laced all American mom and dad on vacation? A gateway beer for hard lemonade fans to enter “craft” ? Or Summer=lemonade+beer= “Great idea, order a shitload of it”?
