Pabst Brewing Company Launches National Bohemian Crab Shack Shandy

BALTIMORE — National Bohemian Beer Company today announced the release of National Bohemian Crab Shack Shandy, its first new beer to hit the market in over 30 years. The seasonal shandy is now available in select areas throughout the Mid-Atlantic through the end of the summer.


“We are incredibly excited to introduce Crab Shack Shandy,” said C-Mo Molloy, Natty Boh brand manager and Baltimore native. “Natty Boh has been a staple of this region since 1885, and our hope is that the Crab Shack Shandy will continue to build upon that legacy. 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.”

National Bohemian Crab Shack Shandy is a golden straw-colored lager infused with notes of citrus and a hint of lemon and orange zest, overlaid with finely roasted malt flavor. Light-bodied and easy-to-drink, the shandy culminates in a white foamy head and a quick, dry finish.

“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,” added Molloy.

Crab Shack Shandy will be available in 16 oz. can six packs (MSRP: $8.99) and 12 oz. can twelve packs (MSRP: $14.99) in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Crab Shack Shandy has an ABV of 4.2 percent, IBU of 15 and SRM of 5.
