I might just be crazy enough . . . and bored enough . . . to try this. People online that if you want to make a cheap light beer taste better, just drop a PICKLE in there.
It's not a new idea. "Esquire"did a write-up on it a few years ago. But does it really work? Well, if you HATE pickles, the answer is no. But if you like them, the answer is . . . maybe.
Some people think it gives light beer a nice kick because pickles have so much salt. So they go well with beer just like other salty foods, like chips, pretzels, and fries. Just make sure you use a big enough glass. It tends to foam up when you drop the pickle in.
This guy calls it a "Beer and a Spear"
