Depth Charge


We reckon you’ve heard of drop shots like Jägerbombs or Irish Car Bombs. Or maybe you prefer to plunge a shot of whiskey into your beer instead of sipping them separately when drinking a Boilermaker. Whatever your poison, when you drop a shot into a beer, it’s called a Depth Charge.

You could do this with whiskey, tequila or any other spirit of your choice, but we really wanted to switch things up with Ramazzotti—an Italian amaro that’s infused with orange peel and 33 herbs and spices. Drop it into a hefty German wheat beer like a Hefeweizen, and you have yourself a Depth Charge that’s pretty damn gourmet.
