I stock the beer fridge at the company that I work for. I know who drinks Bud Light, who like's IPA's, and so on.
They've asked me to do a little tasting on St. Patrick's Day. My access to Irish beers is limited, so I was going to do some blending for them to add to the choices.
Here's what I've purchased:
Hoegaarden (instead of Blue moon)
and I'm still hoping to find a cream ale
These are the traditional blends I'm thinking of doing:
Guinness + Bass Ale = Black & Tan
Guinness + Hoegaarden = Black & Blue
Guinness + Smithwicks = Blacksmith
Guinness + Cider = Black Velvet
Guinness + Irish Red = Garnet and Black
Now, is there anything that would blend well from this list that isn't Guinness?
