According to CNBC, 2013 is “the summer of shandy.” As in shandy beer – the combination of lemonade and beer.

The CNBC story states that the shandy’s origin is dates back to 1922 in Bavaria when a man named Franz Xavier Kugler gave the lemonade beer combo to some cyclists.

Shandys can also be a combination of beer with ginger ale or cider. If the combination contains beer and cider, it’s called a snakebite.
