I found myself a spot at the bar inside Blacksmith Brewing and realized I had just witnessed something I had never seen before. I’m not saying I’m an expert on all things beer but this wasn’t my first time to a brewery. The man sitting next to me placed his order for a beer. His order shocked me enough to ask him what the hell he was doing. He had ordered a ½ of a glass of the Cutthroat IPA and ½ of a glass of the Brickhouse Blonde… although that does not sound particularly odd – but what struck me as odd was that he mixed the two in a single pint glass and proceeded to drink it. I was shocked! I had heard of a Black and Tan before… but mixing blondes and IPA’s. I was starting to think this guy might be on to something. He told me that the IPA was too strong for him and the blonde toned it down. It made perfect sense but I did not share in his opinion that the Cutthroat IPA needed to be toned down. It’s citrus taste resonated with me and I found it to be my favorite beer there.
