Generally speaking, the beer cocktail—or, more apropos, the beer confabulation—was devised by a conspiracy of malefactors whose goal was to defile the palate. Granted, the Black Velvet, created to commemorate the death of England’s Prince Albert in 1861, is one of the few exceptions, but the singular purpose of most of these mishmashes is to stave off sobriety as quickly as possible.

Beer cocktails are catching on because they have recently been touted as a good marketing tool for bars that otherwise do not feature beer. As beer cocktails continue to gain unprecedented popularity, even respectable bars are fixing them.
