The last one's I ended up mixing together were SN Pale Ale and North Coast No. 38 stout.
I do this all the time. Styles, breweries, age, etc. I don't really care. If I have plenty of the beer I like to mix around. These are the only pictures I have of some of mine.
HF S&S5 + Abner. Phenomenal
Charred indigestion. I nearly vomited off of the burps, let alone the flavor.
'06 BBC + Infected '07 Pannepot. Meh
This inspired me. Tried a Left Hand Nitro over a Little Sumpin' Sumpin'. Not bad, would've liked to drink them separate though. I'll be trying different combos in the future.
Brown Shuggah, Youngs Chocolate Stout, and some ice cream! Never tried it, but sounds good to me!
1/2 Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout and 1/2 Lindemans Framboise. Pretty awesome.
Recently did Parabola + DDBA and it was delicious! Subsequently did a Backwoods Bastard and a Founders Imperial Stout and thought I wasted 2 great beers.
Schlafly pumpkin + wookey jack. That shit was awesome
Youngs Double Chocolate and Well's Banana Bread work well together.
I plan on doing a Sam Smith's Organic Chocolate and Liquid Bliss mixture soon as I found the chocolate too subtle in Liquid Bliss itself.
Heady Topper with MGD 1:1 or Heady with seltzer 2:1. Makes for a reasonable IPA. Heady is kind of like beer concentrate and I can't get through more than one. This allows more volume with just a single can of Heady.
Pangaea in Sacramento makes an IPA Suicide that they mix from IPAs &/or DIPAS. Reminds me of being a kid playing Little League and getting a Suicide soda (all flavors mixed) as a treat after the game. Last month at Hair of the Dog in Portland, I asked the bartender if I could get a mix of their DIPA and Pale Ale. I worried that maybe they would be insulted to mix them. He said sure, we do that all the time!
cheers to all,
Mixed Surly 5 and Surly Darkness once. It was quite wonderful actually. I thought it would taste like an infected Darkness, it was actually insanely good. Was almost like a barrel aged Darkness with some fruity funk.
I mixed a Rogue Voodoo Donut and my drain and it was perfect!
Seriously though...Heady Breakfast. Heady Topper and Breakfast Stout...yum!
Lol... I have an extra Voodoo Donut lying around... curious as what would mix well with it. If only there was a waffle/pancake-like beer.
Zombie Dust + Orange Juice... not 2 beers but a Dustosa nonetheless. Didn't invent this but it's tasty.
2/3rds Southern Tier Pumking
1/3rd Southern Tier Creme Brulee
Bam, instant Pumpkin Pie, and yes, it IS fantastic.
On draft at Old Chicago Pizza
Irish Black & Tan. 50/50 Guiness & Smithwicks
Gonna try some Old Raspy and Mad Elf at home tonight.
Any Imperial Stout and B. Nektar Cherry Chipotle Melomel and you are golden. I went with Dragons Milk, just love it.
I like an amazing bourbon barrel stout (say BCBS) mixed with a well made saison (say something from HF) the yeastiness really makes an interesting flavor come out of the BCBS
I mixed Lagunitas Brown Sugga' and Founders Breakfast Stout last week. Turned out awesome.
Samuel Smith's chocolate stout w/ Samuel Smith's oatmeal stout = Samuel Smith's English breakfast stout. Yum.
I have been known to pour a shot of Russian Standard vodka into my beer from time to time...I don't have a name for it, it is just what I do...
Why anyone would pour anything into a BCBS is beyond anything I can imagine...IMO
Terrapin - moo hoo / wake n bake
Yeah, but WHY "nar" twice?
I've mixed IPAs and stouts in the past, but this thread reminded me of how I could finally drink those last two pumpkin beers that are sitting around.
I did a Narwhal and Cele back a month or so ago..Wasnt bad
Not great either but I know this mixing thing has been around forever !!!
May need to try a few more one day..
I am thinking of trying a Dale's Pale or Devient Dale's with Ten Fidy. Craft version of a black and tan
Thats too bad. Its my favorite beer and i love to mix it with things. Its only beer dude, theyll keep making it.
This was phenomenal by the way. I highly recomend it!
Like I said at the end of my sentence, it was just my opinion (IMO)....
It probably was a good mix, but I don't see myself anytime soon, bring able to afford enough BCBS to warrant the experiment (I would be too bummed if it failed).
By the way - curious to know - did you top it with some nutmeg?
Not two beers but Old Rasputin and Pinot noir. Maybe more of a 2:1 than 1:1.
If you dont get it then you just dont get it... Sorry.
Pulled off a pretty nice blend yesterday for a bottle share. In a 64oz growler, blended 2x 22oz ST Choklats, 2 12oz 's Bourbon County, then added a few tbsp of jalapeno infused Knob Creek bourbon.
Guess which beer the crowd talked about the most?
Great Lakes Christmas Ale and Great Lakes Blackout Stout: Christ is Black
I had never thought of this. Seems a risk versus reward thing, but maybe it is a new opportunity. Beer mixology shouldn't be any different than mixing any other drinks, cooking with beer, or beer pairings with food. Seems to me it pushes the envelope and adds to the legitimacy of beer in general. No different than the brewers pushing the limits and experimenting. The challenge would be understanding the flavors and figuring out what goes with what, but I reckon all those expensive mixed cocktails evolved the same way.
Will say initially, the purist in me had the WTF moment, but thinking about it changed that initial reaction. It is a choice, after all.
