It was Pat McClimans that introduced me to the concept of an Irish Car Bomb, a Boilermaker composed of Irish liquor and Irish beer, although the pairing is older than Vince Lombardi’s underpants. Being of an adventurous turn of mind and spirit, an exploration of the possible combinations of beer and liquor has been a part of my own journey. Here are some combinations I find to be compelling:
The Classic: Jack Daniels X Budweiser
The Irish: Bushmills X Murphy’s Irish Stout
The Kentucky: Ten High X PBR
The Nirvana: Woodford Reserve X Stella Artois
The Mojo: Ezra Brooks X Pilsner Urquel
There are undoubtedly many other viable combinations; post your favorites here.
