  • Why is Crafty Radler so awesome?
    Just like Colonel Sanders' secret blend of eleven herbs and spices and the secret formulas to Coca-Cola and Big Mac Sauce, our recipe is a closely guarded secret. Our team and Pump House Brewery agonized over getting every combination of flavors and mouth-feel just right. For the soda, we created the blends of two beautifully complementary fruit flavors on the front end and balanced it with just the right amount hops and maltiness to finish it off. With the well-rounded aromas of the Willamette hops paired with the beautiful fruit bouquets, our award-winning brewers crafted the perfect beer that blends brilliantly with the refreshing fruit sodas. So with all of that, and little love and the support from our loyal fans everywhere, Crafty Radler was born and has since become one of the top rated radlers in the world! Which to us, is pretty awesome!
  • What is a Radler?
    A radler is a type of beer-based beverage that is traditionally made by mixing beer with fruit juice or fruit-flavored soda. The term "radler" originates from Germany and Austria, where it translates to "cyclist" in German. Radlers are characterized by their lower alcohol content compared to traditional beers, making them a lighter and more hydrating option. The addition of fruit juice or soda imparts a fruity and often slightly sweet flavor to the beverage, which can help mask the bitterness of the beer and create a more approachable taste profile. The exact ratio of beer to fruit juice or soda can vary, but typical radlers often consist of about half beer and half fruit juice or soda. The result is a beverage that combines the qualities of beer with the refreshing and flavorful attributes of fruit. Read more about the origin story of radler here.

  • What's with the raccoon riding that weird bike?
    That weird bike is called a penny-farthing and is also known as a ‘high wheel,’ ‘high wheeler’ and ‘ordinary’. It was the first machine to actually be called a "bicycle". We thought it appropriate to show a bicyle on our can as radler is literally the German word for cyclist. The raccoon is probably the most "crafty" animal we could think of so we thought it fitting to use him to represent the brand. His snappy outfit is a tribute to the great Franz Xaver Kugler, the pioneering inventor of Radler back in 1922.
