It's a cocktail, there are no rules.

Brew a beer low in hop, malt, and yeast character. Mix you're preferred portion of citrus drink, ginger drink, whatever you choose. Keg together and enjoy.

I think bottling would be tough because of preservatives in the mix & and the yeast would consume the available sugars and change the profile of the shandy. Killing the yeast and force carbing would be about it.

When I was at the Deschutes brewpub in Portland last summer, they had something called a radler on tap. I think that it's a summer drink in northern Europe of lager and European lemonade.

I don't know how they mixed the two - whether at the bar or in the keg. Might be worth an e-mail to Deschutes. From what I've heard, they're pretty good about answering questions.

Beer + lemonade = shandy

Or is there some secret shandy that us Europeans don't know about?

Thats on the menu in various pubs here. Its basically half beer (whatever is on tap) + half 7up. Mixed by topping draft beer up with lemonade, nothing fancy.

Gotcha. They were really good, especially on a hot day with lunch.

I bought some last summer that was bottled, personally didn't like it one bit but that's the beauty of homebrewing, make whatever you like.
