Enjoying A Bloody Beer
According to bartender Carrie Golisch, REAL came up with this drink because they wanted to create a beer cocktail — something they’d noticed had been gaining traction on the Mainland. They tried out a few and found that the richness of Guinness and the savory tomato juice was a winning combination.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THIS DRINK?
The spiciness. I’m definitely a Bloody Mary advocate — I like drinking them and this is just such a different way to approach that drink.
WHAT’S SOMETHING COOL THAT HAPPENS AT REAL?
(Brewery) Brassiere de Cantillon does what they call Zwanze Day, it’s just a really unique day of the year where people come to enjoy sour beer … (At REAL), it’s a line down around the block at 9 a.m. to drink sour beer. It was one of the weirdest things I have ever seen.
DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR BAR-GOERS?
Come in with a smile on your face! I love when people come in excited to try something new.
