Beer Cocktails: Hokkaido Brewsky Sangria
This is inspired by Roger Kugler's tangy beer-based sangria (which was in turn inspired by a British customer's request for a shandy, a refreshing blend of lager beer and lemonade or soda).

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 bottles Hokkaido Brewing Lemon Lager
1 bottle Hokkaido Brewing Pear Lager
chilled 1 cup triple sec
2 Bosc pears, sliced, for garnish
In a food processor, combine the Bartlett pears with 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice and process to a puree.
Slowly pour the beer into a pitcher. the triple sec and the pear puree.
Fill pint glasses halfway with ice.
Add the sangria and garnish with the Bosc pear slices.
