A few years ago, beer was just beer. You could get a beer that was dark or maybe a beer that wasn’t. You wouldn’t put anything in your beer and even if you did it wouldn’t be anything more than a lime or something, right? Right.
Well, fast-forward, friends. Beer is different these days and everything is fair game, including beer cocktails.
