For a big-batch beer bloody Mary, nothing beats this oatmeal-stout-laden recipe from Chicago bar Longman & Eagle. But there’s no better Mary-for-one than a half-and-half blend of Mary mix and beer; here, our three favorite combos.
Fat & Juicy + Upslope Top Rope
A Mexican-style craft lager gives a carbonated lift to a well-balanced mix.
McClure’s + Uncommon Siamese Twin Ale
The famous pickle maker’s briny blend clings to this dubbel’s lime, coriander and lemongrass.
Demitri’s Chilies & Peppers + Ft. Collins Z Lager
Add tomato juice, and the mix’s megaspice and beer’s smoky notes read like a Southwestern burger.
