“One of our favorites is the brunchtastic michelada — a beertail riff on the classic Bloody Mary.” Business Insider, Aug. 2015
At Don Chelada, we agree that a michelada is an amazing choice to enjoy with brunch, but what exactly is a beertail? It’s the short name for a beer cocktail. The versatility of beer makes it the ideal ingredient for a great mixed drink. Perhaps one of the more well-known beertails is the beergarita, which is a margarita-beer blend. Over the past few years, more bartenders have been coming up with fun drinks that feature beer, which means beertails range from simple or complex. Some establishments even have created signature beer-based drinks. Citrus beverages, like lemonade, have been found to blend nicely with various brews. The result? Drinks like the Lime Shandy.
It looks like the trend of beertails is continuing into 2018! A number of the these cocktails use beer as the sole alcoholic ingredient, while others add additional spirits.
