DRINKS MADE WITH BEER
Here’s an idea the Brick staff brought up – Staff beer
recipes! I’d like to point out at this time – Beer Bongs are NOT recipes! People, get real! How about this instead?
Ale, brandy, sherry, cloves, cinnamon, sugar, lemon juice.
BLACK and TAN
Lager downstairs, Guinness upstairs.
Dark beer and cola. Not necessarily served in a dirty glass.
Smooth as it’s name, Half Lager, Half Champagne.
BLOW MY SKULL OFF
An 1850’s Austrailian miners drink made with stout, rum, cayenne pepper, lime juice and opium. Forget the opium.
EYE’LL B PUKE-N’
From our buddies at Mendocino Brewing, one of their favorite concoctions. Half Eye of the Hawk and Half North Coast Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout.
Beer and tomato juice. Hemmingway’s hangover cure concoction?
You got it, Beer instead of vodka!
Half beer, half ginger beer. Also made with ginger ale, apple liquer, raspberry or lime juice. From Merry Olde England.
SKIP AND GO NAKED
Beer, gin, grenadine and lemon juice. An old favorite. Please remain clothed.
SMACK and TAN
(Concocted in Dave’s very own secret laboratory)
The Black and Tan kicked upstairs with Ale and Barleywine! Half Anchor Steam Beer and Half Old Foghorn – OR – Half Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale and Half Bigfoot!!! Seeing as how this is America and despite what very sneaky bad people say it is actually impossible to be either politically or zymurglogically incorrect, you are free to substitue the brewery of your choice!
“The Poor Mans Black Velvet” – Half Guinness and Half Cider
A favourite from England – Half Lager and Half Cider
Scotch, Drambuie and beer. Scottish beer, of course. Who but the frugal Scots could come up with a drink featuring all their own products? Kilt and pipes not furnished.
WHISTLE BELLY VENGENCE
Half beer or ale with rum and molasses. An American Colonial drink circa 1600.
U.S. to METRIC CONVERSIONS:
How the European Beer Sizes compares to U.S. measurements.
11.2oz = 335ml
12oz = 355ml
16.9oz = 500ml
25.4oz = 750ml
33.8oz = 1Litre
10.8 US Gallons = 9 Imperial Gallons = Firkin
5.4 US Gallons = 4.5 Imperial Gallons = Pin
15.5 US Gallons = Typical Frat Party Keg
(actually a Half Keg, a “full” keg weighed about 300 pounds, they’re no longer produced for public consumption)
Belgian kegs are typically 30Litres
European kegs 50 Litres
The huge Scottish Casks that Bruce Williams brings over for his tastings are 250 pound 80 Litre monsters.
I put the most bottle sizes on our menu. If the bottle does NOT have a size by it’s name, it’s usually a 12oz American or a 11.2oz Import.
