🛒 Ingredient notes
Iced tea - I use The Owl's Brew for this recipe. It's the first reported tea crafted specifically for cocktails.
Beer - I like to use an IPA for this cocktail to add some hoppy flavor.
✅ Step-by-step instructions
- Pour iced tea and beer into a tall beer glass.
- Squeeze fresh lemon juice into the glass.
- Garnish with lemon wedge.
Some say the names are interchangeable. Traditionally, a shandy is made with beer and lemonade while a radler can be made with beer and various fruit juices.
Absolutely! A lager will provide a lighter beer flavor to this cocktail. I prefer a more hoppy taste so I opted for an IPA.
🍽 What to serve with this cocktail
This iced tea and beer cocktail is a great complement to backyard barbecue fare like Filipino Pork Barbecue Skewers, a BBQ Bacon Burger, or a Southwest BBQ Chicken Salad.

The Classic is delicious and I can't wait to pick up more flavors to try as well. In Oregon, you can get them at Whole Foods Market, Zupan's, Green Zebra Grocers, Crate & Barrel, Williams Sonoma, and several different liquor stores!
