With such zealotry about craft beer (ahem), you could easily get your stein-holding hand lopped off for diluting a Green Flash or a Dogfish. And we’re not about to make a shandy from a Tej, but there is one beer cocktail that we’ll be drinking all summer long: the michelada, a Mexican standard made by mixing lager with a combination of ingredients that generally includes clamato, Maggi sauce, hot sauce and lime — all of it served over ice in a chili- and salt-rimmed glass.

Since summer is long and our thirst great, we caught up with our friends at The Third Man for two additional variations on the michelada: one with rhubarb and bourbon, the other with tequila and grapefruit. Drink up, and watch those hands.
