Ginger Beer Shandy Recipe


National Beer Day is April 7, 2017 and while we don't need a special day to find a reason to crack open a Barritt's Ginger Beer, National Beer Day -- perfectly situated at the near start of Spring -- does seem like the ideal opportunity to mix up a refreshing Beer Shandy. 

Important note: While you don't have to wait for National Beer Day to enjoy the rewarding taste of Barritt's, it is crucial that Barritt's Ginger Beer is only consumed on days of the week that end with "Y." It is safe  -- and even beneficial -- to drink Barritt's on those days.
