Finally, we have the answer: they should come at the same time.
Introducing Blended Beer Drinks at 8oz Burger Bar, the perfect marriage of booze and beer, now available in one glass.
Think of them as the refined siblings of the classic Irish Car Bomb. For this new bouquet of 16 crossbred brews, the bartenders at 8oz have mixed up various juices, liquors, sugars and herbs with some of the country's most intriguing craft beers…and we see your palate being satisfied on a number of levels.
If you're ready to wrap your arms around autumn, you'll want the Pumpkin Bomb, made with Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale, Goldschläger, brown sugar and star anise. And when you're hankering for a nice dessert drink, order up the Mixed Berry Beer Float, a frothy mix of Lindemans Framboise (raspberry beer), Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale, Grand Marnier and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Of course, if you're not quite ready for such bold inter-alcohol experimentation, feel free to start with the Black and Blue, a simple blend of Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale and Shipyard Bluefin Stout.
