For a craft beer-based take on the infamous Brass Monkey, Sixpoint Brewery recently introduced RAD, a tangy concoction of fruit juice and beer. Inspired by a 50-50 blend of lemon soda and beer originally created to quench the heavy thirst of cyclists at a busy biergarten outside Munich in 1922, RAD is the first in a new category from Sixpoint called "Cycliquid." A deep orange color and sharp, citrus-y flavor profile make the radler best suited to hot summer afternoons and evenings. And with an ABV of just 3.2%, you'll be free to liberally sip without running the risk of accidentally getting too loose.
