Shandy season is definitely upon us as the summer warmth continues onward. To help shandy fans find new, additional flavors, Narragansett Beer offers the Del’s Shandy Variety Pack. This new variety 12-pack includes the long-awaited return of fan favorite Del’s Black Cherry Shandy alongside summertime classics Del’s Lemon Shandy and Del’s Watermelon Shandy.
All three flavors come in at 4.7% ABV and each have their own unique flavor profile that’s crushable for the warmth of summer. Our favorites are Del’s Lemon Shandy and Del’s Watermelon Shandy. Both are very crisp and refreshing with subtle fruit flavors.
Del’s Black Cherry Shandy made its debut in 2015 and now returns with its prominent cherry flavor. The current version is said to boast an updated recipe. That said, we found that this flavor was our least favorite of the three. The cherry flavor was a bit too artificial for our preferences.
“Sumner is such a special time in New England – full of backyard barbecues and beach days!” says Mark Hellendrung, President of Narragansett Beer. “We wanted to honor the love our fans have for the staple Lemon and Watermelon flavors that Del’s offers as well as bring back another classic, the Black Cherry Shandy. Our Del’s Variety Pack makes it easier than ever to keep the fun going this summer with all your favorite Shandy flavors in one box.”
Del’s Black Cherry Shandy is available in 6-packs for market price ($10.99 – $11.99 SRP) and in the variety pack of 12–ounce cans alongside Del’s Lemon Shandy and Del’s Watermelon Shandy for market price ($16.99 – $18.99SRP). The Del’s Variety Pack and 6-pack of Del’s Black Cherry Shandy will be distributed throughout the Eastern Seaboard from North Carolina to Maine, as well as in Kentucky and Ohio beginning March 2022.
