Some of the popular Beer Cocktails:

The Classic Shandy: It is a mixture of beer and ginger beer, ginger ale or lemonade. This drink gives all the pleasures of beer with the refreshment of lemonade - a tangy, tasty drink.

This old English tradition dates back to the 17th century. Although the origin is not clearly known, some believe that is was named after a local English pub where the beer was not of the best quality and was "flavored" with a sweet lemon mixture.

Fill a pilsner or beer mug with lager and top with ginger ale, ginger beer or lemonade. If you are a bit more adventurous, try a Shandy with limeade. Don't be afraid to add ice to this drink. You can't do that with your beer.

Lager and lime: Add a dash of lime juice or lime cordial to a light lager.

Snakebite: Mix your favorite beer (usually a heavier beer, like stout, works well) half and half with cider.

Black Velvet: Mix stout and champagne, half and half.

Beer Bloody Mary: Mix beer and tomato juice, half and half. Add a dash of Tabasco and a dash of Worcestershire.

Red Eye: Add a shot of tomato juice to any ale or lager (this cocktail is also known as Tomato Beer or a Red Rooster). If you add a splash of Tabasco, the drink becomes a Ruddy Mary.

Liverpool kiss: Mix a dark beer with Cassis.

BeeSting: Dark beer and orange juice.

Skip and go naked: Combine beer, lemon juice and gin, with a dash of grenadine.

Broadway: Popular in Japan, mixing beer and cola is known as a Broadway

Caribbean Night: Beer and an ounce of coffee liqueur.

South Wind: Beer with a shot of melon liqueur.
