3/4 oz Velvet Falernum
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a pilsner glass (Highball) filled with crushed ice. Top with Green Flash's West Coast IPA (2 1/2 oz Founder's All Day IPA), garnish with mint (lemon twist instead), and add a straw.
Two Saturdays ago, I was working my way through reading the Death & Co. Cocktail Book when I spotted the Strange Brew, a curious Tiki-beer cocktail, for the second time in the text. The recipe was attributed to Thomas Waugh back in 2008, and the concept stemmed from the idea of mixing beer with fresh fruit like the Germans do with their radlers. Thomas' favorite combination was pineapple and IPA which inspired this drink. For a name, he dubbed it Strange Brew after the B-side of EMF's "Unbelievable" single (instead of the original version performed by Cream).
