Top 10 Beer Combinations:

If you love beer but want to try to class up your drinking game, give these 10 beer combinations a try!

1. Michelada

Michelada

Add some lime juice to a Corona, a Modelo or a Sol. Kick it up a notch with some hot sauces, then garnish with salt on the rim of your glass and a slice of lime. Perfect for a summer night on a patio.

 

2. Black & Tan

Black&Tan

Black and tan is the classic mixed beer drink. Just fill up half of your pint glass with a lager of your choice and then finish it off with Guinness (or another dark beer if you must) so that it rests on top. Beer + beer = better beer.

 

3. Black Velvet

BlackVelvet

Black velvet is the fancy version of a Black & Tan. Swap out the beer for whatever champagne your budget allows, and you’re good to go. One part Guinness, one part champagne, all parts awesome.

 

4. Black & Black

Black&Black

For a fruity take on the Black & Tan, try out a Black & Black. Pour half a glass with black berry juice and fill the rest with Guinness. Adding a splash of vodka or a berry flavoured vodka is optional but highly recommended.

 

5. Crown Float

CrownFloat

Yet another variation of the Black & Tan. Perfect for when you can’t decide between cider and beer! The Crown Float is half Strongbow, half Guinness. You’ll feel like a king while sippin’ on this drink.

 

6. Irish Car Bomb

IrishCarBomb

The Irish Car Bomb might be the worst mistake you’ll ever make. Pour half a glass of Guinness, fill a shot glass with equal parts Jameson Irish Whiskey and Bailey’s Irish Cream, drop the shot into your pint glass and say your prayers. We’ll pray for you too.

 

7. Baesar

Beaser

The Baeser is for when you’re so hungover, not even a classic Caesar can help you. Mix your favourite pale beer with your favourite Caesar recipe. Garnish with celery, bacon, or whatever else you can dream up. Pairs nicely with Ibuprofen for those extra tough mornings.

 

8. Snakebite

Snakebite

If cider is too sweet for you, try a snakebite. The drink mixes equal parts lager beer and cider for a slightly fruity taste without being overkill.

 

9. Shandy

Shandy

Mix your favourite light beer with 7Up to get a shandy. If you don’t to have 7Up on hand, try ginger ale, carbonated lemonade, or any other citrusy juice or soda. The ratio should be about half and half. Try cayenne pepper on the rim of your glass for a bit of spice.

 

10. Summer Hoedown

SummerHoedown

This is the perfect summer refresher! To make a pitcher, liquefy one watermelon in a blender to create the juice and then mix it about four white beers like Hoegaarden or Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc.
