Before I started brewing I had a keg of Newcastle Brown and a keg of Bells Expedition Stout on tap and mixed 50/50 was excellent. We called it Blackcastle.

I had frankenkeg at one point.

I made 7 or so 6 gallon batches. I had a keg with a mediocre pale ale 1/2 full. I added the extra gallon from each brew (several weeks apart) to the franken keg. It went well for a while, but after a blacker than your soul stout gallon was added, it was a porter for the last 3 additions despite them being light colored.

It was interesting, but left me with some nice combinations that will be impossible to replicate.

I have been doing this for quite some time although I have only mixed within a few specific styles (i.e. PA's and IPA's and IIPA's). Have had some really nice results/surprises and will continue to experiment.

My local brew pub mixes an Apricot Wheat & IIPA about 30/70 that's nice, they call it an 18 since it's twice as good as a #9. it's the only way I can get my wife to drink an IIPA.
I also went to another brew pub that mixed Strawberry Wheat and Double Chocolate Stout and called it a chocolate dipped strawberry. That one was hard to get a good ratio but they did make adjustments as I drank it until it tasted right so no complaints there.
There is a Firestone Walker anniversary beer available that is a blend of quite a few different beers they brew and it is delicious. I'd recommend trying that blend if you can find it.

Had a black and tan with a Pale Ale from Brooklyn Brewery and a Guinnes not that long ago.

The taste was very different from an ordinary beer. Cant say it was bad, probably need to try it a couple more times since its a very odd taste.

The funny thing was when I ordered it. Did it at a quite ordinary pub and the bartender who never heard of it, got real exicited and had one as well. Later in the evening there where several people aorund the bar drinking black and tan.

I did a Belgian Black and tan when one of my bottles of Belgian Imp Stout was flat and I had some Belgian PA on hand. It was pretty good!

Right now I have a very malty Coffee Vanilla Porter on tap next to a very light-bodied, slightly overcarbed Rye Mild. The Rye really makes the Porter pop. Makes me want to brew a Rye Porter next... hmmmm...

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
