This cocktail is a variation of the classic Brazilian drink the Caipirinha and is a creation of Jacob Grier of Metrovino in Portland, OR. The Caip-beer-inha is the pretty much the same drink with the addition of some IPA beer. The beer adds a nice, robust flavor to the drink while still keeping it light.
