What to do when you've got a couple farm-stand peaches on the counter and they're just getting ready to go? Puree them into juice and use them with your favorite beer to make a sweet, light, and super refreshing shandy, then hit the back porch and relax!

Shandies are an old drink, still popular in England, and they deserve to be better known here. They're perfect for hot-weather, when you don't want the weight of a full-alcohol beer.
