Beer Mixology

Many people will find that there is something distinctly wrong with the above picture. Some might say almost, disturbingly wrong.

Beer mixology is basically about mixing beers with various liquers, spirits and other stuff to create what is more or less a beer cocktail. Across the beer blogosphere it's been given bits of coverage here and there but the blogger who really caught my attention with it was the Beer Wench. Now Beer mixology even has its own website. Something I've often noticed about beer trends are that what starts in the USA usually ends up over here. That's not to say that the concept of blending beer with other drinks or even other beers is remotely new but something that could arguably complement and enhance the current global craft beer scene.

Up to now I have only tried a few beer cocktails, mostly of them made up by ma main man Justin at Alnwick's local craft beer bar 3 Wise Monkeys. To be honest, I find them interesting though I can't see myself drinking them all night. But what do you think? Is beer mixology sacrilege of good beer? Just a fad? Or an art form in its own right?

In my view mixing good beer is like mixing good vodka or whisky. It might be nice in a cocktail but it's rarely better then the original product as it was intended to be served.
