    In the Randy Mosher episode of Michael Kiser’s Good Beer Hunting podcast the two guys get into this fad, and its inherent dangers. Some good perspective, especially considering that one of Mosher’s brewery projects (Forbidden Root) started as a way to make a real craft beer with a similar profile to traditional root beer. Certainly worth a listen: http://goodbeerhunting.com/gbh-podcast/2015/5/1/ep-044-randy-mosher-author-designer-and-brewer

    the rule that isn’t told is “use fresh everything.” those high fructose atomic colored “mixers” are things nobody should drink. they are too sweet, they contain a lot of salt, and the color might also be used to change hair. the Shandy (beer and lemonade) is a thing of awesome when the it’s made from a box of lemons sweetened with cane sugar and chilled to colder. the beer turns out to actually matter. I found that “lawn mower” beer didn’t make a very tasty drink, while one of the Summer ales from Sam Adams, Anchor or New Belgium made a Shandy tasting way better.

    when mixing these almost abominations start with a 20% 80% juice to beer mix. then add juice or beer to dial in the balance. you won’t get it right the first time. also, don’t be afraid of ice. normally ice in beer is considered, umm, dumb. but it’s required in these mixed concoctions.
