I believe it is simply the most refreshing beer ever brewed. In addition, we are entering the cider segment with mike’s Smashed Apple Cider, so delicious that consumers prefer it three to one versus the leading cider.

Marking Mike's debut in the world of beer, Mike’s Authentic Shandy starts with real Mike’s Hard Lemonade then adds crisp golden lager fora blended, sessionable beverage experience. Rather than adding lemon flavoring to beer, mike’s mixes in its very own hard lemonade to guarantee a taste that holds true to the original shandy blend served in pubs and bars around the world.
