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.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
