Session #27: Beyond the Black & Tan

By Jasmine · April 3rd, 2009 · 36 Comments

Beer at Joe’s is hosting this month’s Session, where beer bloggers across the world get together to post about a specific topic. Our chosen topic is…beer cocktails. Most people have had a black & tan, which is a combination of two kinds of beer and think it’s pretty tasty. Most people have heard of a Shandy, beer with lemonade or soda added, and think it’s not so tasty.

But beer cocktails go far beyond these two famous examples. Many countries have their own versions, and many new chefs and bartenders are getting creative with beer as an ingredient, not just a standalone drink.

What’s your favorite beer cocktail (and yes, despite the title of this post, it can be a black & tan or a shandy)? Find a recipe for that or a new one, try it, and tell us why you did or didn’t like it–even if you think beer cocktails are nothing but a good way to waste a beer. Have fun and try something new!

Be sure to blog it by May 1st, then comment on this post or email us at joe@beeratjoes.com with a link to your cocktail musings.

The Session originated by Stan Hieronymus of Appellation Beer and has been going on for just over two years. For more information check out Jay Brooks’ Session page.
