My understanding of a beer cocktail is that it is technically beer mixed with liquor, with or without other ingredients. The submissions look great, but many of them aren't really beer cocktails. I don't know if A&M are following the strict definition or not, but it's just something to keep in mind. Good luck everyone!

I'm a former bartender, and Citycook, you're right about the definition. However, laypeople tend to think that beer mixed with anything constitutes a beer cocktail. Some of the entries sound great and are very creative, however many others are well known beer based drinks.

My brussels sprouts came on the stem this week from the farm. Hmm... what to do, what to do... I suppose the basic caramelized version that I do every other night isn't fancy enough for this. Must put my thinking cap on... :)

Yes!!!! We love brussel sprouts- I have three stalks to work with this week- just in time to submit a recipe! I am so excited!

my boyfriend is not happy with the Brussels Sprouts theme, hopefully I can improve his mood with a nice beer cocktail!

Or maybe we can convert him to a Brussels sprouts fan with a great recipe.

I just bought some lovely little Brussels sprouts at the greenmarket, so yippee!

did they come on the stem? Always makes me feel like I'm hauling around a medieval weapon.
