Default Beer "mixing" at the bar

Not sure what to think about this. I can understand that some folks may prefer to mix their brews (example: I enjoy a black & tan every so often...), but this bugs me for some reason that I just can't put my finger on.

I think its pointless. If you want a SNPA, order a SNPA, don't mix 4 beers to achieve the same thing with one. Though I could see this becoming a fad ...

in my mind, it's like bar mat leavin's. maybe it tastes great, but I'm not sure I want to find out.

Used to sell Mat Mixins at last call to those too drunk to serve a legit drink to, was usually mostly beer with random liquors and never a good thing, but it put a couple bucks in the tip bucket since we usually charged $3 for it and they usuallly tipped at least a buck and smiled

I have mixed beers that I have bought in the store. I like to try to new beers, and sometimes they are hit or miss. If they are too sweet, I usually mix them with a dipa or something like that. Makes any beer salvageable.

There are a few bars that don't mind making custom mixes for me. I love a nice American or English pale ale with a splash of DIPA for a fresh hop note.

The best part is that reporter trying to pronounce "cohumulone".
