Default Beer Cocktails?

Anyone ever had any REALLY nice cocktails that have beer in them? I had one that had gin, grapefruit, and IPA in it and it was pretty good. Just wanted to hear if anyone else had had anything that was tasty and well crafted?

Not sure if this counts, but mash runnings w/scotch are a wonderful brew day tradition.
Hot Scotchy.

EDIT: +1 for lunchbox below! Yum. Beermosas are great too (beer & OJ for breakfast)

As a bartender I personally cringe in the presence of beer cocktails (just seems so out of place!) but I do recommend a lunchbox; quite tasty.

(Spanish pronunciation: [mitʃeˈlađa]) is a Mexican cerveza preparada made with beer, lime juice, tomato juice (or Clamato), and assorted sauces, spices, and peppers can be added for a Chelada .[1] It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass.[2]

Like a beer and a bloody mary has a delicious baby!

Colorado Mimosa: 50% Avery White Rascal, 50% OJ. Awesome with a breakfast burrito or Huevos Rancheros.

Abbot's Flip was DELICIOUS, was introduced to this by Larry Bell when I was working for him back in the day.... 24oz strong ale (used Third Coast Old Ale), jigger of spiced rum and an egg. Pour beer into a liter mug, add rum and raw egg. Shove a red hot poker into the liquid. It will instantly cook the egg, which shreds and mixes with the froth. OMG.. SO GOOD

Also had something called a Flaming Dr Pepper. Mug of light lager beer (think the place was using Coors), some kind of liquor in a shot glass (don't remember what it was, sure Google could help if I wasn't lazy). Light the top of the shot and drop it into the beer. It foams up and you have to slam it... but it tastes almost exactly like Dr Pepper. Too easy to drink LOL

As said above, Michelada!! Unlike with vodka, you can also do it without tomato juice if you prefer and still have it taste good.

They serve a Michelada at a bar by me. Great with brunch. I do enjoy a spicy cocktail.

See, that's where the real story is.
