Radler first became popular in 1922 in the town of Deisenhofen, Germany. The beverage was an instant favourite with the local cyclists travelling from Munich. 40 years prior, Ottawa's first bicycles were imported in 1882 from England at a price of $300 each by George A. Mothers ill, founder of the Ottawa Bicycle club, the oldest and one of the largest clubs in Canada. We first made this beer in 2014 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Pub Italia.
