Summer Shandy returns to Leinenkugel’s, new beer in the works

Eau Claire (WQOW) - A summer favorite is returning to Leinenkugel's brewing company, and they're working on a new bubbly beverage geared toward health-conscious customers.

Summer Shandy is back in Leinenkugel's rotation of beers on tap.

President Dick Leinenkugel said Summer Shandy is the number one seasonal craft beer in the U.S.

News 18 stopped by the brewery as crews were preparing for Friday night's launch party to celebrate the return of the fan favorite.

Meanwhile coming in mid-March, Leinenkugel's will launch a new product called Spritzen. It's their lowest calorie lowest carb beer flavored with a splash of Seltzer.

"There's a definite move in the beverage alcohol business for lower calorie, lower carb," said Leinenkugel. "We call them 'better for you' type of products. So rather than just doing a hard seltzer, what we're doing is flavoring our beers."

Earlier this week, Leinenkugel's also announced it is partnering with the Chippewa River distillery to produce a Cranberry-Ginger Schnapps, which is only available here in Wisconsin.
