Nashville Stout Cocktail

A generous pour of Wiseacre’s Gotta Get Up To Get Down coffee milk stout tops off a smooth combo of Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream liqueur and Irish whiskey over ice.

DUSEK’S, Chicago
Porter Beermosa
Moody Tongue’s Caramelized Chocolate Churro Baltic Porter lends cocoa and dark caramel flavors to a luscious cocktail that also includes amaretto, lemon and a salt rim.

BERETTA, San Francisco
Grand Larceny
This whiskey sour riff gets its bittering balance courtesy of lemon juice and Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, which counter the sweetness of bourbon and a housemade hibiscus syrup.

ARMOURY D.E., Dallas
Shimmy Shimmy Ya
This bourbon-based flip includes Averna amaro, orgeat syrup and a whole egg; it’s shaken and topped with Well’s Banana Bread beer and crumbled Cookie Crisp cereal.

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.
