Steamroller

Steam beer, created in California in the 1800s, is made with lager yeast and fermented without refrigeration at ale fermentation temperatures. The result is a beer that is full-bodied and more bubbly than ale, but still clear and crisp. San Francisco bartender Joel Teitelbaum uses the unique qualities of this style of beer in a cocktail sweetened with cherry and elderflower liqueurs.

What to buy: Cherry Heering is a Danish cherry liqueur invented by Peter Heering in the early 1800s. It is viscous and sweet with an intense dark-cherry flavor. A little goes a long way, so use it sparingly in cocktails.

St-Germain is an elderflower liqueur that is sweet and floral. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.

This drink was featured as part of our Beer Cocktail Recipes slideshow.

Instructions

  1. 1Place a pint glass in the freezer to chill.
  2. 2Combine the St-Germain, lemon juice, rye, and Heering in a cocktail shaker and fill the shaker halfway with ice. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted. Strain into the chilled pint glass and add the lemon twist. Top with the beer.
