Carlow Brewing Company have just announced the launch of Stiegl Radler Grapefruit in Ireland – this particular radler is 40% Stiegl Goldbräu and 60% fruit soda. With the weather we’ve been having in Ireland recently, it sounds like just the ticket for sunny days and BBQs.
The Stiegl brewery is the leading private brewery in Austria, established in Salzburg in 1492 and still family owned today.
The 500ml cans contain 170 calories and at 2.0% ABV, it’ll be suitable for everyone. Fun fact: the German translation of “Radler” is “cyclist”, and the beer is often referred to as a “bicycle beer” because cyclists prefer this style of beer as they cycle the Alps!
“Radlers have quite a history on the continent but have yet to really take off in Ireland. We think with the growing popularity of low alcohol drinks it’s the perfect time to introduce one of the best examples of the style to Irish customers.
We brought over some kegs initially to see if there was an appetite for the product and it has performed really well on draught. In fact as soon as it went on tap we started to receive queries on social media asking if cans were available!” – Carlow Brewing Company Co-Founder and CEO, Seamus O’Hara
Stiegl Radler Grapefruit will be available in select bars, independent off-licences and retailers with an RRP of €2.99 per 500ml can. Stiegl’s flagship beer, Stiegl Goldbräu (5% ABV) is also now available.
