Bitter Shandy

The taste of sunshine, happiness and old-fashioned street parties!

Nothing brings back memories of traditional street parties like the delicious, thirst-quenching taste of Ben Shaws Bitter Shandy.

With the bunting flying and the Union Jacks waving, all your neighbours were there, sharing their plates of sandwiches and bowls of crisps. Sunshine, jelly and, of course, what seemed like giant bottles of Bitter Shandy… made from real beer and lemonade, it was the irresistible soft drink that used to make you feel so very grown up!

For a quick trip down memory lane, Bitter Shandy is available in a 330ml can or 500ml bottle. The six-can multipacks are ideal for smaller parties and picnics however for those bigger family get-togethers and parties with friends, where all you do is reminisce and laugh, the 2litre bottle is ideal.
