The idea of a frosty glass of beer with fruit and/or vegetables is sacrilege to some, but to others only serves to heighten the joy of the beer-drinking experience. Some of us find great pleasure in the flavor a couple of fingers of juice adds to our PBR (we don't mess with the perfection of a decent microbrew or the dark, chocolatey taste of say, Guinness). At the Bouquet, a "red" beer means a healthy shot of their Bloody Mary mix. It's a salty, piquant mix that makes a cheap beer or two go down way, way too easily. Plus we overheard someone say that beer with tomato juice helps keep the next-day-hangover-caused jackhammering in your brainpan at bay.
