Wawa, 2SP Release Sunfest Strawberry Lemonade Shandy

Old friends, Wawa and 2SP Brewing Company, are continuing the tradition of brewing collaborative limited-edition beers – this time, with a summer twist. On the heels of three successful holiday brews, the collaboration between 2SP Brewing Company’s Head Brewer, Bob Barrar, and Wawa’s Manager of Concept Development and Beverage Guru, Michael McLaughlin, brings about a brand-new brew – Sunfest Strawberry Lemonade Shandy, a crushable, light-bodied shore beer with a touch of strawberry sweetness and a delightful pucker finish courtesy of Wawa’s fresh lemonade.

“Working closely with Wawa’s beverage guru, Michael McLaughlin, we brewed a modern shandy recipe that includes a unique yeast that showcases the spectrum of flavors of Wawa’s Strawberry Lemonade. The collaborative approach to the Sunfest beer was to find that balance of upfront strawberry sweetness with a refreshing lemon citrus finish that comes from the lemonade. What’s the result? A Strawberry Lemonade Shandy that sings summer crusher,” said Michael Contreras, 2SP Brewing Company

Fans will see the specialty brew hit shelves on Thursday, June 24 at six select Wawa Stores, including its two flagship beer stores in Chadds Ford, PA and Middletown, PA and for the first time, four new stores now offering alcoholic beverages including Blakeslee, Emmaus, Horsham and Philadelphia (Addresses below), as well as 2SP Brewing Company (120 Concord Road, Units 101-103, Aston, PA 19014) on Saturday, June 26, and on Monday, June 28 at select distributors and better beer retailers in Southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Eastern Shore Maryland. Sunfest 6-pack cans are priced at $8.99 each.

“There’s no better time than now to reunite with our friends at 2SP to provide a perfect summer beverage to our community to enjoy after the past year we’ve all had,” said Mike Sherlock, Wawa Chief Product Marketing Officer. “This light and refreshing shandy is– perfect for sipping with friends and family in your backyard or on the beach. We hope this beer brings the community together and adds a little extra positivity after a tough year.”

Wawa and 2SP Brewing Company are hosting two launch events from June 24 through June 26 throughout the region.
