I'm not a beer drinker but apparently in Europe they enjoy "Beer Drinks". Here are some easy recipes to try.
Americans love beer. It is the most frequently requested alcoholic beverage for men and second only to white wine for women. We already pour beer into tall, frosty mugs, what else is there? The fact is there is much more that can be done.
"Blending different type of beers together has long been standard practice in English and Irish pubs," says Steve Abbott of Guinness Import Company, whose job is to assist publicans in developing authentic Irish pubs, which includes consulting on food and drink.
The artful skill of mixing beers together requires balancing the attributes of one brew with the characteristics of another. The key is to use two beers with appreciably different properties--body, taste, texture, sweetness and bitterness.
An excellent example is the Black & Tan, a savory blend of stout and ale, typically Guinness and Bass draughts respectively. The Guinness Stout and Bass Ale have different densities, or specific gravity's. The beers will layer one on top of the other -- the nearly black Guinness floating atop the copper colored Bass -- thereby creating a dramatic appearance. Hoist the combination and the heavier beer will slide along the angle of the glass such that both brews are consumed simultaneously. Set the glass down and the layers remain intact. The effect is captivating.
