Driven by an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Illusive Traveler often disappears for weeks at a time without telling a soul of his destinations. Not friends. Not family. No one. And each time he returns, he unveils new, wonderfully refreshing beers with great aplomb.
When pressed to reveal his travels, I.T. changes the subject or dodges the question by refilling the inquisitor’s pint glass with his latest recipe, encouraging them to drink up. His friends inquire as to his whereabouts based on the varied ingredients and spices used in his brews, but he neither confirms nor denies their speculations.
Is he part of some secrete government organization? Does he have ties to the Bavarian Illuminati? Is this man real or an illusion? So many questions, yet so few answers.
We proudly introduce the Illusive Traveler, a mysterious fellow with a distinctly juicy disposition.

|We at The Traveler Beer Company are excited to be offering one of the most refreshing beer styles in the world. Despite being readily available in Europe for generations, shandy’s have been relatively undiscovered in our “curious” US beer culture. Until now.
We are dedicated to bringing these refreshing craft beers to all curious beer drinkers. We look forward to continuing to produce a great tasting shandy AND to push the boundaries what a shandy can be.
At the end of the day, we’re a group of beer fans who like Shandy’s and will work hard to brew some great beers, with the added pleasure of introducing a new style of beer to the US. Join us, it’s quite a refresher.
The shandy tradition dates back to the 17th century and is typically beer mixed with a citrus-flavored soda or carbonated lemonade, ginger beer, ginger ale or cider. Today, English publicans pour a blend of traditional English ale with various lemon and lime beverages for their patrons though real lemons or limes are rarely used.
Curious Traveler™ is a fresh, bold year-round, craft-brewed, all malt wheat ale infused with real lemons and limes. This shandy has a lively fruity flavor and a powerful “throw your head back” fresh lemon aroma.
In short – It’s Quite a Refresher!
