Author Notes: After I finished college many years ago I decided to take my diploma and become a ski bum in Idaho. Back then there were some strange "blue laws".. liquor laws. One was that you had to be 21 to drink hard alcohol but only 18 to drink the same bar! But beer was the only alcohol legally served on Sundays. So, everyone drank just beer or red beer which was just beer with a shot of tomato juice. Back then in Ketchum, Idaho bars weren't fancy, so if you asked for a lemon slice or lime they knew that you were from out of town. You were not a local.dymnyno

Cathy is a trusted source on Pickling/Preserving.

I spent a little post-college time skiing in Colorado. We called it Bloody Beer, and, as I recall, it was a frequent Sunday morning eyeopener before hitting the slopes.

Putting tomato juice in beer is something I never heard of. I am not sure I will like it, but it sounds like it is worth a try! (I love beer.)

bBer was all that was available(legally) on Sundays. It is not as bad as it sounds.
