Brick Brewing Co has launched a grapefruit-flavoured “radler” beer under its Waterloo Brewing unit.

The 3.1% abv drink is a combination of "real" grapefruit juice and German-style small-batch beer, Brick said. The company launched its Waterloo unit last year as its arm for German-style craft beer.

The unit helped the Canadian beer group to record full-year operating profits last year.
