I'm with you there. In fact, I've had it and I'm not gonna brew it.

I like tomato juice in my draft beer (hair of the dog) like a bloody mary topped with salt. Not sure I would want to brew a batch tho.

From their website-

"Bloody Beer
A lighter bodied beer with an appealing ruby red glow and aromas of spicy tomato juice. Fermented with Roma tomatoes and spiced with dill, horseradish, peppercorns, and celery seed lead to an astounding initial tomato flavor, followed by a lingering finish that allows each additional ingredient a chance to resonate on the palate. Decant carefully, and let this 2009 GABF silver medal winner warm slightly in order to appreciate the full magnitude of flavors."

If you can get your hands on one, give it a try. I am going to try to mimic this soon. I will let you know how it turns out
This beer fn rules. I tried it when it was released as their Imperial series back in 07 and thought they weren't going to release it again. Overjoyed doesn't even begin to describe how I felt when they released it again. And this has a really solid malt backbone as well, that just makes it a good beer.

Funny that I came across this thread. My girlfriend and her friends ALL drink bud light red eyes....and I was thinking about making a beer for them. Thank god I turned my girlfriend into a hophead, even the thought of red eyes turns my stomach.

If you have extra tomatoes MAKE SAUCE NOT BEER.

I would imagine someone in history has tried this before. I also imagine someone in history never did this again. I'm not one to preach Reinheitsgebot (sp?) but for ****s sake, tomatoes and basil DO NOT BELONG IN BEER.

I tried an Asian beer that had basil in it. It was horrible. The whole time I was drinking it, I was thinking to myself 'There is a reason beer wasn't invented and perfected in Asia'.

Finally got my hands on a few Bloody Beers this year. GOOD STUFF! If you've never had it, give it a try! You might be pleasantly surprised.

sounds delicious. I might make a batch with some clams and spice to give it more of a clam digger taste.
