This cocktail is refreshing and easy to drink for occasions when you don't want pure alcohol (for example, if you're watching a football game). The autumnal flavors make it perfect for sipping during fall football season.
Swap option: You can use sparkling lemonade or sparkling orange juice instead of the sparkling cider.
Slowly pour the beer into a 10-cup capacity pitcher. Slowly add the sparkling cider.
Pour the shandy into frosted glasses and serve immediately.
