Ever hear the term "beer cocktail"?
Such drinks fall into two categories: those made by combining two types of beer (a black-and-tan is the best-known example), and those made by adding either spirits, fruit or vegetable juice or a non-alcoholic carbonated drink to beer.
That's according to an interesting story published in The Oregonian of Portland. The main story and several sidebars, in particular one on summer beer cocktails, make for thirst-inducing reading.
The Oregonian, however, isn't alone in reporting on such drinks. Try here, here and here, for example.
