at a brew club meeting around Christmas I got passed a chocolate porter coming one way and a kriek coming the other way and my first thought was CORDIAL BEER!

think it was a 75/25 mix, porter to lambic and I thought it was pretty darn tasty

no one else would try it

I had an old IPA that lost the hop flavor and aroma and an orange wheat that was a bit too sweet. Mixing the two resulted in a fantastic beer that I'm really tempted to try and replicate in a single recipe.

We've got a small brew pub near here that does that all the time. He usually has about 5 or so beers on tap and by mixing them comes up with another 5 or 6.

Mixing beers?? THAT'S CRAZY!

Yes, I've done it.

FYI - I saw a Black and Tan kit in the store the other day. 6-pack with 3 Bass Pale Ales and 3 Stouts.

All the time.... I have a Kolsch and an IPA on tap right now... both are good beers but when mixed half and half they are great.

I also BLEND beers in my kegged if on has TOO MUCH of something and the other has TOO LITTLE of something.

I ahave also mixed to kegs to gether and taken them to a party because I wanted to get rid of them of use the newly emptied keg...

Mixing beers is not new at all.
Back in the old days, different batches, strengths, and shades were mixed commonly.

It is yet another great part of homebrewing, the ability to experiment...trying things that are not readily available!

Stone mixes the 3 different bastard beers for its Lukcy Basartd release. It is awsome.

I had a Belgian single and an Oktoberfest on tap at the same time. 25/75 of those two made a really good blend.
