It captures who we are and what we stand for.



Leinenkugel’s
Snowdrift Vanilla Porter
is a robust and velvety addition to Leinenkugel’s
seasonal selection.
This porter-style beer is aged on Real Vanilla, to reveal rich layers of Caramel, Coffee and Chocolate that is ideal for the Winter season............................................

 

 

Pours a clear dark brown amber colored brew
with a beige head that leaves
behind a thing of beauty.

Aroma of vanilla,
a hint of roasted chocolate malt,
light coffee and white chocolate.
Taste is medium bodied, flavors of roasted chocolate malt, plenty of vanilla bean, a hint of cinnamon and light coffee.
Finish is semi-sweet, some smooth character with a slowly disappearing
vanilla and light caramel aftertaste.
The vanilla presence is perfect.


Snowdrift Vanilla Porter can be enjoyed as an after dinner specialty porter, or enjoyed as a meal beverage.

Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

You'll Fall For This Shandy!
Available Year Round

Available in 12 Pack Bottles, 4 Pack Cans and 6 Pack Bottles




Appearance

Pouring a peach color, it’s neither pink nor orange, but meeting somewhere in the middle.
A tall crown of white foam caps the beer and, in thick layers, leaves lace clutching the pint as it sinks down.


The Nose

The aroma is ... you guessed it ... berries and lemon!


The Taste

With total simplicity, Lemon Berry Shandy abandons aggressive sweetness for a more balanced and drinkable flavor.



 

Mouth feel

Moderate carbonation dances on the tongue as this light bodied beer smoothly slides from mouth to stomach. Crisp and refreshing, a lingering sweetness trails, followed by a subtle dry saltiness, begging for another sip.

The Softer side of Mike's

mike's hard pink logo
Mike wants to remind all of us,
October is Breast Cancer
Awareness Month.
1 in 8 women will be affected

.

 

Why Pink Lemonade?

Pink Lemonade
is a natural extension for the Mike's Franchise. It is an iconic, all-American beverage favorite; Mike's is a populist American icon that makes great tasting, refreshing hard lemonades.


Seasonal
(Aug thru Oct)

 

 

Why partner with the Breast Cancer
Research Foundation?

At Mike’s, we’ve got a reputation for
being hard. But that doesn’t mean
that we don’t have a soft side, too.
To help mark our 12th anniversary and
in memory of Jacqueline S., a part of the
Mike’s family since we were founded, and a really great woman who left us way too soon, we will be making a
contribution to the
Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
