In search of Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy Beer - have you seen it??

I had it while visiting Wisconsin recently and love this seasonal brew. I have called BevMo and they said that only a few stores sell it and they are in Arizona! Has anyone seen it anywhere locally, preferrably in bottles that I can buy and take home, but I would also be fine with getting it on tap somewhere. Thank you for any information!

      Summer Shandy? When I called the Pasadena location, the saleswoman looked it up and told me that the only locations <near> here that carry it are in Arizona. Which BevMo? Thanks!

      They always, always say that—because there's a Leinenkugel brewery in Arizona (Kingman, maybe?). It ends up out here but they'll never tell you over the phone. You will have to just keep trying—and BevMo is a good suggestion.

        I have not physically gone to check - just called. I will physically go in and see if they have it. Thanks!

          I've scored Honey Weiss and Berry Weiss that way (the one in Burbank).

            They're both good, but that Summer Shandy is really good! Thanks!

        I don't know, but try calling Galgo's- the Soda Pop Shop or stop? It is on York in Eagle Rock. They are the ones that have all the old sodas, and lots of beers. Good Luck.

          Funny, I did not think of Galco's - I go there for sodas! Thanks!
