good, but…

Sonny and Cher, Gutter Twins, bbq chicken and white zinfandel, MySpace and News Corp, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? and Kitchen Nightmares, eMachines and Vista, HW and Reagan, Renault and AMC, you get the idea… right?

Mixing the boring with the bad.

The Special Ale. Ho hum. Yet another American-style pale ale. Booorrring. Seems like everybody makes one and they all taste more or less the same. It’s the new American-style lager. And though I may bitch, as thoroughly bored as I am with the style, I thought this was a pretty tasty example. I like it, it just bores me.

More interesting: I took last week’s beer, Frame Straightener, and mixed it with this one. It’s a good way to finish the rest of that Brau Brothers six pack.

  1. Yeah, it was pretty good- definitely better than the FS on its own. I think the Brits like to mix their beers- think Black and Tan. I used to frequent a pub in Des Moines run by an English guy. He had all kinds of mixes on his menu.

    I also like to mix Surly Furious and Bender.

  2. I blend all the time with the homebrew taps. IPAs and wheat beers are an unexpectedly good mix.

  3. mixing a Furious and Bender is not unheard of…some customers at the Blue Nile have done it…it’s called a Fender…
