Baseball is all about the stats, Moneyball is just confirmation of that truism. It's also a fairly entertaining bit of recent history and a chance for Brad Pitt to flaunt his acting chops, rather than his finely toned abs. Regardless, baseball calls for beer. The Shandy is a summer beer cocktail mixing beer, usually a pale ale, with an equal amount of ginger ale, ginger beer, or lemonade. It's a tasty concoction mixing tart and sweet with savory hops and malt – perfect for a ball game. Or at least a movie about them.


  • 4 Ounce beer
  • 4 Ounce ginger ale/ginger beer/lemonade


Pour the liquids into a pint glass and stir gently to combine. Then tilt one back and pretend you understand the stats Moneyball throws out like water.
