At Shandy Shack, we generally don’t take life too seriously. That’s kind of what happens when your working life is spent joking about shandy.
There are some things, though, that do matter to us. You probably won’t catch us shouting from the rooftops about them too often (not really our style), but we thought we’d pop something up on the website so those of you that are interested can read about them.
Doing our bit to help the planet
It’s no secret that us humans haven’t been very kind to planet Earth for the last century or so. That’s left us in a slightly sticky situation, which we need to act fairly swiftly to sort out. Sadly, there’s no quick fix here and as a society, the only answer is for us all to ‘do our bit’. At Shandy Shack, we definitely don’t claim to be experts, but we feel strongly that we can have a positive impact if we and our community all chip in. So, while you can rest assured that behind the scenes, some rather smart people will be helping us measure and reduce our footprint, you’ll more likely hear us sharing stories and tips about stuff like cycling to supermarkets for store checks, growing your own veg and avoiding single-use plastic around the home.
Better relationships with booze
If you’re a fan of our shandies, the chances are that one of the things you like about them is that they have lower alcohol content than other beers. The truth is shandy’s always been the go-to drink for those looking to cut out a unit here or there, and that’s really what led to us starting Shandy Shack in the first place. A lot of people treat alcohol moderation as a choice between all (i.e. 4% ABV) or nothing (non-alcoholic), but we think there are different, delicious ways to develop a healthier relationship with alcohol. And having had experiences of alcohol misuse in our personal and professional lives prior to Shandy Shack, we really feel the importance of proving that point.
