    I once knew several Brazilians that would mix orange Fanta and beer.

    I don't normally do anything to my beer because I drink beer that I enjoy the taste of. truly, the beer alone is usually enough for me but I have been craving a good black and tan lately. I'd like to combine young's double chocolate with well's banana bread beer, a banana chocolate delight

    coffee in the morning hits the spot but coffee beers are a close second...one this heavy might not be the best idea though

    a barrel aged high Alcohol bomb is not that. It's kind of comical.

    But you're not doing anything to the beer or at least not altering it in any way, so your post is irrelevant. Let's stay on topic here, guys :wink:

    I've seen a guy put salt in his Busch lite- pretty weird for a couple of reasons.

    I dont' know about "strange" but I almost cut a guy in college... I was at a party and waited a long time in line for a keg beer, and upon receiving it finalllllly, had some bonehead walk up and pour some crappy tomato juice mixture in my beer. I'm pretty sure I dumped it down the drain and left the party.

    weirdest/best I've seen/tasted was a buddy drilled a hole in a coconut; added vanilla bean paste, coco nibs, cinnamon sticks, and toasted coconut flakes then added a bottle of BCBS before plugging the whole thing up and letting it sit in the fridge for a day. Tasted heavenly, and after we busted the coconut open and the flesh was taste too!

    I don't think it to be so strange, but my Grand Dad used to always have Bud and tomato juice with breakfast.

    I really think we can just end the thread with this one as the blue ribbon winner. Just mentioning Piels with any addition pretty much takes it home! Haven't seen this horrible bottom shelf dwelling brew since early 90's.

    Ear wax works better to kill the head. In college when the keg would foam your solo cup up too much, more experienced beer pros knew to you stick your finger in your ear then stick it in the head to reduce it quickly. Works like a charm. Not exactly a smooth move to impress the ladies at the party though.

    As a beer can collector I had friends who would only collect what they drank. I once saw my friend chugg a 30+ year old can. When asked how it was his response was "lumpy"

    Works the best with sours, IPA, and Pale ales....its a tasty treat at the end... it impacts the flavor
    of the beer slightly....but man does the watermelon soak up some good flavors haha I love it....cheers

    Try it on a day off. A good coffee stout on a Saturday morning when you have nothing else to do is quite a treat.

    I'm sure it is. Just with us being beer aficionados and all it strikes me as odd that day after day the first page the wbaydn thread is barrel aged imerial stout followed by barrel aged imperial stout. You would think more lagers and things of that nature would start the day like in old world tradition. Guess me 'Mericans are a little different.

    I worked with a Russian guy who turned me onto this. Put ice in a glass, then do half vodka/half beer. He called it a "Hammer and Nail." An apt name seeing as the vodka conjures up the Russian hammer and sickle and it essentially is the last nail in the coffin for the night. I used it as an anesthetic when I severely sprained my ankle one year.

    While I understand it's traditional in some sense to add flavored syrups to a glass of a Berliner Weisse, I still find that super strange. That and ice in beer, just... why?
