Hofbrauhaus Cleveland Radler Ride

Enjoy a fun ride and a Radler to finish the day.

What is a Radler?

The term Radler originates with a drink called Radlermass (literally “cyclist liter”) that was originally created by an Innkeeper in a small town, just outside Munich. During the great cycling boom of the Roaring Twenties, an Innkeeper created a bicycle trail from Munich, through the woods, which led directly to his drinking establishment. On a beautiful June day in 1922, a reported “13,000 cyclists” crashed the Innkeepers party. Fast running out of beer, he blended it 50/50 with a lemon soda he could never seem to get rid of, and the rest is history.
