Craft Beer Cocktails

You stand in front of the shelves and look at all the spirits as you plan your next cocktail event with friends. But what about beer? Don’t keep ignoring this option because you’re missing out on some amazing cocktails!

Classic Beer Cocktails


We’re talking your go-to lager and tomato juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and a squeeze of lime juice. It’s a taste explosion that’ll make your taste buds do the salsa. There’s no better way to take this to the next level than with a chilli garnish and a salt-rimmed glass.


You try the previous suggestion and feel like you’ve been punched by Mike Tyson. We apologise. Shandy is what you need to claw back to the lighter side. Blend a light, wheat-based beer with lemonade and perhaps a splash of citrusy liqueur for added zing. Serve over ice and enjoy the breezy taste of this crowd-pleaser – this mixes well with craft beer

Black and Tan

The goal this time is to mix a dark stour with a lager or pale ale – something you wouldn’t think works. The interplay of colours and flavours creates an elevated drinking experience. Skillfully layer the lighter beer atop the darker beer for a visually captivating beverage.

Fruit-Infused Beer Cocktails

Raspberry Beer Mojito

Muddle fresh raspberries and mint leaves with simple syrup and lime juice in a shaker. Add white rum and top it off with a raspberry wheat beer. Strain into a glass filled with ice, and garnish with additional raspberries and mint.

Citrus Beer Sangria

Got some white wine? Citrus juices? Orange liqueur? Why are we asking, of course you have. It’s just a click and an order away if not. Toss in slices of oranges, lemons, and limes. Allow the mixture to rest for a few hours, then incorporate a hint of lemon-lime soda and a light, citrusy beer just before serving. This invigorating blend is sure to delight your taste buds and leave them feeling joyous.

Watermelon Beer Margarita

Ask people for something refreshing and many people will mention watermelons straight away. You may have some lime juice, syrup, and tequila in your house so it’s time to take basic watermelon to the next level (you’re welcome!). Pour over ice in a salt-rimmed glass and top with a watermelon wheat beer for a flavourful concoction that screams summer. Close your eyes and pretend you’re on a sun lounger and your boss is across the pool (only kidding, they’re far away with their meetings and unreasonable demands!).

Seasonal Beer Cocktails

Pumpkin Beer Spice Martini

The pumpkins go up around the neighbourhood and you want to get into the festivities (without the effort of carving a pumpkin!). Combine pumpkin beer, vanilla vodka, and a splash of half-and-half. Shake with ice and strain into a glass rimmed with graham cracker crumbs for that pumpkin pie essence in a glass.

Don’t settle this year when you can have loads of fun experimenting!
