But what happens when you’ve tried all the pints in the area and are looking for something new to drink at home? We take it up a notch by turning local brews into beer cocktails.
We've put together three beer cocktail recipes that you NEED to try before summer’s over.
1 can Birdsong Jalapeno Pale Ale (16 oz)
2 cans tomato juice (5.5 oz per can)
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
Hot sauce (to taste)
Shake all ingredients (except for the beer!) with ice until blended. Strain into two pint glasses filled with fresh ice. Top with beer. Garnish with celery.
1 can Catawba White Zombie (12 oz)
¼ cup cubed watermelon
Splash of Sprite (or 7Up)
Muddle the watermelon until the juice has been released. Strain juice into a pint glass, then top with the White Zombie. Add Sprite to taste. (Hint: Use more Sprite if you like sweeter drinks, or use less if you really want the beer to shine though.)
Coco Loco Float
1 can NoDa Coco Loco (16 oz)
1.5 oz Jack Daniel’s
Scoop of vanilla ice cream
Place a big scoop of ice cream in a pint glass. Top with a shot of Jack Daniel’s, then slowly pour in Coco Loco until the glass is full. Stir lightly and serve with a straw and a spoon.
