Ingredients:

Bloody Mary Mix or make one to your taste!

-tomato juice

-Worcestershire sauce

-celery salt

-prepared horseradish

-black pepper

-hot sauce (Valentina is my personal favorite)

One 12 ounce can of Redacted Rye IPA

Pour roughly 4 ounces of Bloody Mary mix into bottom of glass. Add ice if desired, but it can dilute the drink so I prefer using very cold beer instead. Pour one can of Redacted into glass and stir. 

Want to get a little fancy? How about rimming the glass with celery salt before getting started. A slice of lime might impress your friends, too.
