Italian liqueurs take center stage in this beer cocktail, which is topped with a splash of pale ale. Coltivare uses Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale.
1½ oz. Amaro Cia Ciaro
½ oz. Fernet-Branca
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. rich simple syrup (2:1)
2 oz. chilled pale ale
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: mint sprig
Combine all the ingredients except the beer in a shaker and shake with ice to chill. Strain into a snifter filled with large ice cubes. Top with beer; garnish.
