1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Nux Alpina Walnut Liqueur
Shake with ice and strain into a beer tulip glass with ice. Top with 3 oz Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA, gently stir, and add straws.
For a second drink at Kirkland Tap & Trotter, Tyler Wang recommended the Sawbuck, a beer cocktail on the menu. With the beer, spice, and walnut notes, it reminded me of Brick & Mortar's Fears and Failures, while the IPA, citrus, and cinnamon medley made me think of Russell House Tavern's Private Shandy. Regardless, the combination as a whole was different enough and intriguing.
