Have you ever mixed various beers and enjoyed the outcome? I'm sure many of you have had a black & tan (Guinness and Bass), but have you gone further than that? I was at a bar not long ago and I watched the bartender mix lagers and ales, stouts and ciders, and all manner of strange concoctions. I've also heard that it's been popular in Europe to mix beer and a soda of choice. Ever experimented in such a manner?
I've recently heard of an "Eclipse", which is Blue Moon and Guinness, and I will try next time I go to a bar.
I know of several mixed drinks using beers- the Guinness one's I know well; Half & Half (Guinness layered over Harp); Black Haven (Guinness layered over Belhaven); Blacksmith (Guinness layered over Smithwick's); Bumblebee (Guinness layered over Boddington's); Black Garden ( Guinness layered over Hoegaarden); Brave Liver (Half cider, half draft of choice); Black Velvet (Guinness layered over Cider); Black barrel (Guinness layered over KY Bourbon Barrel Ale- AMAZING); and a SnakeBite (Harp layered over Cider). Those are the ones I tend to drink if I feel like mixing things up.
Sure thing. I've recently had cider mixed with a sour ale, or a lighter sour (Flemish) mixed with a stronger sour. Interesting, to say the least. The cider mix with sour is nice because it makes for a zingy, refreshing drink, offsetting the sour with a bit of sweetness from the cider.
The new beer enthusiasm is making for a lot experimentation, no doubt. Good opportunities for introduction to new beer styles, too.
I've done several mixed beers including many that have already been mentioned, but one successful one (and on my mind again of late because both products are on draft concurrently at my local once more) I didn't notice anyone bring up thus far -- a sweet stout (Young's Double Chocolate for instance) & a belgian fruit lambic (framboise, kriek) as a "dessert beer".
I'm a big fan of the cheap beer and orange juice. My buddies and I will grab an 18er of Rainier, a carton of Tropicana, and mix 'em half and half. Typically, we do some crossfading with these and a few bong hits. The orange juice helps with the cottonmouth and the Vitamin R encourages the buzz. Love it.
Guiness can usually float on any other lighter colored beer. You can basically put it over the beer of your choice and give it a clever name. Also, over the summer I got a shandy which is an ale with a juice in it. In my case it was Bass with a slight bit of lemonade in it. Quite delicious, but not quite for the season.
