Exactly. The reason "beer jello shots" might be weird to some people is that the traditional "jello shot" is sweet and fruity, since it's made with jello. Thus most people assume that you are mixing beer with say lime jello and therein lies the distaste (athough if you did it right, it could be done with Corona and lime ). I think Guinness or other stouts would work fine, but it might not be as widely accepted. There are also many variations on this theme using other alcohols like chardonnay jellies, gin and tonic gelee, sake shots, etc.Astronuc said:Hey that's not too weird - I've had Guinness ice-cream - something like a blend of Guinness draft and ice cream (possible vanilla). It was great, and it tasted like Guinness.
Also, Guinness goes great with Pecan pie.
