Recently, my wife and I moved from Toronto to Calgary (and yes, one of these days, I’ll update my location in my SDMB profile). We’re settling onto our new home without too many problems, and exploring the neighbourhood. On one of our explorations, we found a sports bar that I’ve returned to a few times, especially since it was some time before our TV was unpacked and connected, and I’ve wanted to see some TV sports.
Anyway, I’ve noticed that a number of people in the sports bar order a small container of tomato juice to go with their beer. They pour the beer into a glass, then dump the juice into the beer, and drink it. For all the pubs and bars I’ve been to in my life, I’ve never seen this, or indeed, even heard of it. But they seem to quite like it.
So, who has tried this beer-and-tomato-juice concoction? What’s it like? What’s it called? And should I give it a try someday?
