A Beer Of A Different Color

Ever heard of a red beer? Well, I hadn't either. So a few months ago when this fellow asked me for a red beer, I said, and I quote, "What?"
He went on to explain that a red beer is half beer, half tomato juice. You know, to lend a few nutrients and vitamins to your toxin. Mystified, I asked the pilots about it at dinner. "Oh yeah," they said. "Red beer. Tomato juice. Lends a few nutrients and vitamins to your toxin." And since then, I've had quite a few people ask for those things.
The reason I'm just telling you about this now is that some guy yesterday ordered a beer and some orange juice, and right there before my horrified eyes, mixed up an orange beer.

Red beer sounds horrifying. The orange beer is less so, only 'cos it's common to toss a slice of orange into a Blue Moon or comparable beer.

I think it is blasphemous to screw up OJ with anything other than vodka.

This is truly insane. A Friend from the Czech Republic told me that you get stabbed there if you harm a beer with ANYthing you might mix in. I guess for RED or ORANGE beers, there's not only stabbing but some weird ancient torture thing.

Actually, my bartender housemate says that's called a Shandy. Apparently, it's a terrific beverage when it is unbearably hot outside and you want something a little more refrshing. If you really don't feel like passing out from a single beer due to dehydration thus earning the eternal mocking of your cohorts, it might be a good choice.
