I've poured a too-sweet, too-estery, underhopped homebrew IPA on top of half a glass of KBC Porter from Trader Joe's. The commercial porter was not very good - too astringent and burnt, but together they made a nice B&T. I was almost ready too pour it out, but I was able to save it.

The best mix I ever made was a smoked porter with a winter spruce ale, we called it a "burning forest"

I mixed a Strawberry Blonde ale and a Chocolate Milk Stout. It was very good!

Some now traditional styles actually started with people mixing beers in the pub (porter for one.)

Just be careful not to serve any Black and Tan to an Irish person, they won't like it. Nike tried something similar...

Great discussion ... it has me thinking about brewing an Arrogant Bastard/Westvletern 12 clone with some oatmeal & dark malts. I'll probably never get to do it but the hybrid brew is tempting.

I blended a Berliner Weisse with a Pale Ale for an all beer shandy. Turned out great.

I did two fresh hop ales at the end of last summer and ended up with an extremely hoppy pale ale and an extremely malty amber ale. The two of them mixed together was amazing.

Somebody earlier mentioned the Firestone Walker Anniversary blends and I need to say that they are amazing! I don't see how a blended beer could get better than that.

I gave my boss a Christmas ale I brewed. He drank about half of it, topped it off with miller lite and said "now it's perfect." Guess who doesn't get free homebrew anymore.

I've never really tried mixing that I can remember. Some of these posts sound pretty interesting though. My girlfriend loves snakebites, I think its cider and Bass but I'm not sure.
