Driven by wanderlust and a desire for discovery, the Curious Traveler™ set out to explore the globe. Always fearlessly inquisitive, he relished opportunities to befriend other travelers and to experience cultures he had only previously imagined. He sampled their wares, their foods and most importantly their libations. Some were good. Some not so good. Others were downright dangerous.
Many years into his travels, his pace slowed on a particularly sweltering day. He sought refuge in a small pub to escape the oppressive heat. Before he could even finish wiping his brow, the bartender handed him a glistening glass of ale. The Traveler took a liking to the invigorating lemon shandy concoction. “Quite a refresher!” he said gratefully.
The Traveler has never stopped exploring – in fact, he’s on the road this very day. Somewhere. Only one thing has changed: he now makes sure he orders a shandy everywhere he goes.
We proudly introduce our flagship Shandy, the CURIOUS TRAVELER™ – an intriguing fellow….
|Malt Varieties: 2-row malted barley, malted wheat
Hop Varieties: Hallertau-Hallertau

|We at The Traveler Beer Company are excited to be offering one of the most refreshing beer styles in the world. Despite being readily available in Europe for generations, shandy’s have been relatively undiscovered in our “curious” US beer culture. Until now.
We are dedicated to bringing these refreshing craft beers to all curious beer drinkers. We look forward to continuing to produce a great tasting shandy AND to push the boundaries what a shandy can be.
At the end of the day, we’re a group of beer fans who like Shandy’s and will work hard to brew some great beers, with the added pleasure of introducing a new style of beer to the US. Join us, it’s quite a refresher.
The shandy tradition dates back to the 17th century and is typically beer mixed with a citrus-flavored soda or carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale or cider. Today, English publicans pour a blend of traditional English ale with various lemon and lime beverages for their patrons though real lemons or limes are rarely used.
Curious Traveler™ is a fresh, bold year-round, craft-brewed, all malt wheat ale infused with real lemons and limes. This shandy has a lively fruity flavor and a powerful “throw your head back” fresh lemon aroma.
In short – It’s Quite a Refresher!
