Red Beer (or Red Eye) is a no-brainer if you think about it: beer and tomato juice. I often hear people refer to this as a Bloody Mary; a clear misconception, but a common one.

Any beer can be used in this drink, although I would advice using a lighter one that is inexpensive (save the good beer for drinking alone). You can also dress up the flavor in the same way you would a Bloody Mary, by using hot sauce, pepper, celery salt, etc.

Totally my favorite breakfast especially after a hangover, but instead of tomato juice, I use Clamato!
