Two Beers One Cup: 7 Beer Blends You Should Try

Once in a while, we like to play mad scientist with our beer. While there are plenty of amazing brews out there that are perfect on their own, there’s something about being part of the creation of something that excites us. If you want to play beer mixologist, here are some blends to get you started.

  • Ballast Point Big Eye (link) x Ballast Point Black Marlin (link)
  • Allagash White (link) x AleSmith Speedway Stout (link)
  • Young’s Double Chocolate Stout (link) x Lindemans Kriek (link)

  • Random guy

    This shit works with any beer or cider, spirit and wine. I only ever get mixed. Don’t limit yourself to these, mix whatever is available. Also, don’t buy into that mixing grape and grain gets you too fucked up bullshit, try a beer and wine-it’s brilliant

  • Jack Collens

    Young’s Double Chocolate Stout x Well’s Banana Bread Beer

  • The Dude

    Schlitz x Pabst = Schlabst

  • Kevin

    Victory Brewery has a whole list of pairings. Personal favorite = storm king + golden monkey = Silverback.

  • Painths

    Dolan, this sounds great, thanks!
    I have tried what has been bandied about Mizzou’ for a year or so – Summer Smoke (mixture of Big Sky’s Summer Honey & Kettle House’s Cold Smoke) & it’s fine as well, but will definitely try Smoked Salmon.

  • Beerasaurus

    Another very good Dogfish pair – 90 Minute IPA and Festina Peche

  • Meco


  • Brian

    Breckenridge Vanilla Porter with Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale — “Queen’s Velvet”!
