Given how random the weather is here, the warmer teasers received in the D.C. area has us all wishing that Spring (hell, Summer) would finally arrive. When it does, National Bohemian (or Natty Boh) created something for one of our more delicious pastimes.

[NOTE: Not a paid advert, just someone who would enjoy the hell of out drinking this right now.]

Check out the Crab Shack Shandy, which I initially thought would be a crab-tasting beer (which would have been hilarious)…Natty Bo described the brew as “a golden straw-colored lager infused with notes of citrus and a hint of lemon and orange zest, overlaid with finely roasted malt flavor.” It’s the first new beer from the brand in over 3 decades, and — according to brand manager C-Mo Molloy — it’s perfect for those cookouts sitting around that newspaper-covered bench topped with your favorite seafood:

We worked hard to create a brew for the summer season that truly represents the same laid-back, ‘pleasant living’ philosophy that the Chesapeake region is known for… Crab Shack Shandy is a nod to simpler, more leisurely days and we hope our fans will raise a glass together whether on the Bay, at the ballpark or at a crab feast with friends and family.

Natty Boh’s Crab Shack Shandy can be found everywhere in the region; whether or not it’s worth whatever the price is (or if it’s up to par with the tried and true original) is yet to be seen. Check out more on the brand here.
