Actually it's a bivalve mollusk.

Trust me, it tastes great. But you can stick to your whimpy ways. Damn drylanders!

I've been drinking beer with tomato juice since I first had it in Texas in the 1960's. I now use V8 instead of straight tomato juice.
Mr.Beer Lager goes very well with V8 (your call!) Well MB lager w/V8 no long has an after taste while you're drinking it.

Magic Hat has a summer beer with beet juice in it, and it's very red (called Wack-o). Not my thing though. Nor does adding tomato juice to beer, but thats why this is a cool hobby. So many different ways to spin it.

Red beer is essential when camping. It's a morning drink for me.

And they're best with tecate. Everyone knows this.

Chabela (or cerveza preparada) is pretty popular around here. It's basically clamato, beer, and spicy seasonings. It's actually pretty good, but I'd rather have a bloody mary if I'm gonna drink something like that.
Primary 1: pale ale
Primary 2: blondie

My brother in law, who doesn't necessarily like beer, will sit and drink red beer until he passes out. Don't quite see the draw...

The bar in the restaurant I manage will go through about 3 gallons of clamato juice and 4 gallons of tomato juice every week just mixing with BMC and the occasional Caesar and bloody mary. Montanans love their red beers. When I worked at the same restaurant in Idaho we sold maybe one red beer every week.

I love red beer. It makes your standard production line beer taste better.
My favorite is to make it like a bloody Mary. A beer, equal amount tom juice, a healthy amount of hot sauce and whorchester, a dash of celery seed, a sprinkel of old bay. stir and top with seasoning salt. pure heaven.

A camping must have. Bout three of those when in for the day of boating and I'm in a great mood the rest of the night.
