Most of McCoy's and the Foundry's regular beers stand on their own. But McCoy's Ginger Shandy and Newcom's India Pale Ale, like Jerry Lewis and the French, work better together. The Ginger Shandy's syrupy sweetness cuts the inherent bitterness of Newcom's. Some think the flavor is similar to a rip off a bong. Others say it's an improvement over the taste of a ginger beer and a precursor to a Moscow Mule — for those who don't care to dump a whole lot of money on the copper-mug cocktail.
