Tap Handle #538: Leinenkugel - Summer Shandy

Tap size:  13.25"
Rarity:  Uncommon
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

This tap is very similar to the Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat canoe I posted back in profile #203, but the color is different (white vs. blue), and the top features a whole lemon embedded in the tip of the canoe rather than the orange slice in the previous entry. These canoes became so popular that the brewery created additional figural toppers to cover more varieties. I wasn't really looking to acquire this one since I already had the Sunset Wheat, but it arrived as part of a group purchase, making it icing on the cake, and led to the purchase of a third canoe, which will be profiled in a future post.

 Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy is a traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it perfect for the sun-splashed summer months. It is available from March through August. In 2012, it won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival. Recommended food pairings are BBQ chicken, fruit salads, watermelon and freshly caught grilled fish. Leinenkugel's website has a grilled shrimp tacos recipe using Summer Shandy.
