Mixing Beers -- Sacrilege?

OK, I'm ready for the howls of derision that may come...

Last night, I discovered a growler of a really good Viennese lager had been pilfered down to under a pint. Just on a thirsty lark, I poured the dregs into a pint glass, and then topped it up with... wait for it... canned PBR.

It actually wasn't bad. Maybe not as 'lish as the Viennese, but 'way better than the pure PBR.

This experience caused me to wonder if there are serious beer fans who intentionally blend two (or more) different beers in order to change the overall taste perception of the drink. This is very old hat with wines, with near-universal agreement that blending can make a tremendous synergistic improvement over single varietals.

Is there anyone out there who does this intentionally?
