    The best beer mix I've had thus far has been Terrapin's Wake-n-Bake and their Moo-Hoo. I have some Founders Imperial Stout in the fridge now and was thinking it would pair well with a raspberry lambic.

    Any thoughts?

    A few years ago I bought a Pumking, I couldn't stand it. I had a case of FBS in the garage so I poured one with it and it was pretty damn good.

    Lagunitas Imperial Stout mixed with Sucks, best at about 30% Stout and 70% Sucks
    Highly recommended

    This was quite tasty. Beer on the right was a hoppy RIS. Probably 60% celebration.

    Has anyone tried making a black and tan with Great Lakes Edmond Fitzgerald and Ballast Point Sculpin IPA? Or is this just being silly?

    The most interesting combo I've had is Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen mixed with Sargent Pepper from CBC to make a peppersteak beer.

    When I was in college, I used to add a shot of Absolut Citron to my cans of Miller Lite when I received a bottle of the former for my 21st birthday. Not my proudest beer-drinking moment, to be sure, but it got the job done.

    Any mediocre IPA mixed with a very small amount of grapefruit Steigel makes for a good IPA.
    Well's Banana bread 50/50 with Sam Smiths organic chocolate stout is amazing!
    Also Southern tier Choklat and Southern tier Creme are a good combo, but super sweet.
