    We went to one of our favorite Polish restaurants last night, and they added a cool hipster beer garten upstairs. It definitely has its own thing going on , but they had a menu full of beer cocktails. Wifey tried one, a beer mixed with Bloody Mary mix I think. She enjoyed it but I took a sip and thought it was vile. Probably an acquired taste. Anyway, do you like these things? They had quite a few on the menu but most people looked to be sticking to IPAs etc.

    I can remember back in the 80s adding Clamato juice to draft beer once in a while. Down here micheladas are pretty common and can be very refreshing.

    I used to drink a beer concoction in Belize we called "beer soup". So salty that after several of those my legs blew up like balloons the next day. Defn an acquired taste!

    Since I like to homebrew, I like to take about a pint of the first runnings of wort leaving enough room for about an ounce of single malt scotch. Called a "Hot Scotchie" and there is nothing better on a cold winter day while brewing outside in the garage.

    No- they are meant to be separate. Beer and/or cocktails.

    A good old Shandy once every five years or so.

    Well if ginger beer counts ... :)

    My wife enjoys 'Kentucky Mules':

    Ginger beer, bourbon (or rye), a splash of lime.

    I'm pretty sure tomato juice is the only acceptable thing to add to beer. We called it a red beer back in the day. Not a bad combo. Usually done with an American adjunct lager. Now that I drink fancy micro brews I wouldn't think of putting tomato juice in my beer. Or anything else for that matter.

    In our 20s, my friends and I used to use beer mixed with V8 as a "hair of the dog"

    2/3 Old Milwaukee mixed with 1/3 grape MD20/20 is a Sneaky Pete. Somehow the combination tastes like Hi-C and hits you like a truck.

    I have a Shandy once every 40 years.

    I had a raw egg cracked into a pint of bitters once to cure a hangover.
    (Which it didn't BTW).

    Every once in a blue moon I have an Irish Car Bomb -a
    shot glass of 1/2 Irish cream and 1/2 Irish whiskey dropped
    into Guinness stout - Got to be brutal cold outside though.

    Down in Australia I was given a 'Drop Bear' - a Shot of Rum into
    a pint of bitters.

    Young and Dumb - Boilermakers - a Shot of Whiskey into a Pint of Beer.

    And when I was really drunk and wanted to impress someone - used to
    have a 'Flaming Dr. Pepper' (I'm still not sure why it's named that) -
    Amretto and 151 Rum - lit on fire and dropped into a pint of Beer.

    I like a little pineapple or orange juice in my breakfast beer.

    The menu located there. Beer and ice cream sounds like another I'll skip. Food at the main restaurant is perfect however.
