Boulevard Brewing Co.’s newest radler will be released next month.
The beer is Cranberry Orange Radler, a 4.1 percent ABV American-style wheat ale blended with both cranberry and orange juice before being canned and uses the Kansas City, Mo.-based brewery’s Unfiltered Wheat Beer (4.4 percent ABV) as its base. This is the second radler that Boulevard has released in cans, after Ginger Lemon Radler was shipped in 2014.
The original radler was invented in 1922 when the owner of a Bavarian inn named Franz Xaver Kugler began running out of beer and added lemon-lime soda to a lager to serve to some thirsty cyclists.
According to a post on Boulevard’s website, Cranberry Orange Radler will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce cans and is scheduled to begin shipping to retailers in mid-October.
