Possibly beer’s popularity goes far beyond taste and reaches to the core of human basics; pleasure seeking ease of consumption.  You’ll never take the beer away from the man, but perhaps the man can be lead to the most basic of beer cocktails by way of easy recipe construction.  The Black Velveteen is based upon the Black Velvet cocktail which consists of Guinness and Brut Champagne.  This beer-tail keeps more in line with liquids one might have on hand at usual tailgate gatherings, football watch parties or corner pubs.
