Beertini (beer + martini)

A boilermaker is a beer cocktail of a glass of beer and a shot of whiskey. A beertini (beer + martini) is any beer drink that resembles a cocktail. Beer poured into a martini cocktail glass and served with an olive can be considered a “beertini.” A beertini might contain gin, but almost never contains vermouth.
The term “beertini” has been cited in print since at least 1998. Other beer concoctions include “beertail” (beer + cocktail) and “beerita” (beer + margarita).

Although if someone offers to make you a Beertini, that could be a sign that things have gone too far.

Somewhere in the States, can’t remember where (Surprise!), I came across Beertinis - like a regular beer, but with something in the bottom of the glass.

Olives in your ‘beertini’ bounce because of carbonation

Today’s question:
My wife likes to have a “beertini,” a draft beer with an olive or two in it. The olives will sink to the bottom, stay there for a bit and then rise to the surface and continue to repeat that cycle over and over. Any idea as to the reason for this?

Bridging the gap between cocktails and beer

By Ian Cheesman
They come not to bury the Boilermaker, but to evolve it. “What we really wanted to do was to have cocktails where beer was the matrix for all the other really nice, herbal handcrafted ingredients,” Thaheld said.
