The Radler ("cyclist") is a Biermischgetränk that has a long history in German-speaking regions. It consists of a 50:50 or 60:40 mixture of beer and German-style soda pop or lemonade.

In northern Germany, a half-and-half made of pilsner beer and lemonade is known as an Alster (short for Alsterwasser).

In southern Germany, a mix of Weißbier and lemonade is called a Russ'n (“Russian”).

The invention of the Radler has been widely attributed to the Munich gastronomer Franz Xaver Kugler in 1922. However, the recipe for the Radler had been mentioned as early as 1912. Nowadays the Radler is drunk not only in Bavaria but in all of Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic.

During the summer months, the Radler is very popular due to its reputation of being a thirst-quencher.
