Default Blending beers...

Anyone do it?

I was listening to a Sunday Session today at work and Jamil said he has heard of people blending Bigfoot(25%) and SNPA(75%), and it turns out tasting like a IIPA. I think I will definitely give that a try just for fun.

I know in the BYO clone guide, the recipe for Newcastle is a blend of two different beers. Though I'm not sure I'd ever go through the trouble of blending two beers I brewed unless I was doing something with sour beers.

I am more just wondering if anyone has experimented with blending Beers with Beers or even Beers with Liquor. Haha in highschool we had our Keystone Mandarin Lights (Keystone + Bicardi O)

I've done this a bit with the beers I have on tap right now. I mix a little ESB in with my IPA because the ESB finished too sweet and the IPA is a little thin.

I have mixed Bell's Java Stout and Expedition for a delicious dessert beer. It took several tries before I found the right balance but then it was pretty damn tasty. If you do this, make sure to use less of the Java because it seemed to be overpowering.

Beer mixed with liquor? You must have avoided a mis-spent youth. Drop a shot of Ten High into a big draft for a Depth Charge (the shot on the side makes it a Boilermaker of course). My son tells me of the horrifying-sounding Irish Car Bomb, a shot of Bailey's dropped into a pint of Guinness. To each his own I guess...

At the Dogfish Alehouse by me a bartender suggesting having a "75 minute IPA." It was equal parts of their 60 and 90 and it was quite good. When I visited Grand Rapids I had lunch at Cambridge House which had something called the espresso break. It was a vanilla porter with some espresso vodka added. It was pretty good, rather sweet though. It was rather pricey on the menu, but they had $2 pints on ALL drafts when I went so I tried it out hehe. I have to say, any place that devotes 8 pages out of a 10 page menu to alcohol is A-OK in my book.

O'fallon smoke beer and the old Tadcaster from Samual Smith makes a mighty fine smoked porter.
