I was recently talking with some friends of mine about what is next in the world of cocktails and the subject of beer cocktails became the topic of conversation. This was, to me, the next exciting, creative avenue in mixology. Then, only a few days later, Ashley approached me online and asked me to become involved in this project. I was delighted, however, working in a small wine/craft cocktail bar in Olympia WA, my beer selection is limited to only about a dozen bottle selections, we do not have a tap system. I knew my first foray into beer mixology would have to be simple, un-intimidating, and appeal to a wide audience. I started with flavors that already work well together, Hoegaarden and orange.
