I used to drink a layered beer with Magic Hat #9 and Guinness (aka a 'Black Magic,' as we used to call it)...pretty good. I also really like blending ciders with pale ales/IPA's...originally got the idea from drinking what I knew as a 'Snakebite' (yes, I know this also can refer to a wide variety of different blends depending on where you're from...); ie, a blend of sweet cider and a pale lager. I now prefer the cider/IPA blend so much that I've really considered brewing a hopped cider primarily...this fall I'll probably get a few extra gallons of cider and give it a try...
I want to say I once saw something on TV about a place that specialized in mixing different brews...for the life of me I can't remember where/when I saw it, or where the place was!
