Pale Ginger Shandy

From Food Network Kitchens
A shandy is the classic combo of beer and lemonade. Spicy ginger syrup and tart lemon juice round out the hoppy ale, with an extra burst[ of bubbles from club soda. Add leftover ginger syrup to a bowl of berries for a simple dessert.]
Heat the sugar, ginger and 1/2 cup water in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, and stir to melt the sugar. Remove from the heat and allow to steep and cool for 15 minutes, then strain (should make about 3/4 cup). Reserve the unused ginger syrup for another use.
Mix 1/4 cup of the syrup with the lemon juice in a large liquid measuring cup. Add the club soda. Divide between two chilled beer chalices. Pour half of the beer into each glass. Garnish each with a lemon slice and serve.
