You can't have a Bloody Mary without a beer chaser, right?

Well, it's a Wisconsin tradition, and if you're not chasing your vodka and tomato juice with a slammer of barley and hops, you're doing it wrong.

Enter this awesome couple, who clearly know the importance of a Bloody Mary with a beer chaser.

Potato quality, but my boyfriend and I went as a Bloody Mary and a Beer Chaser for Halloween (chaser is a Wisconsin addition) from r/pics

Sure, the beer chaser is a thing in Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota, but it's most popular in Wisconsin.

Why is the beer chaser a thing with Bloody Mary's? The beer is rumored to cut down on some the tomato acidity. Others say it accents the flavor if the Bloody Mary.

However, you cut it (or chase it) I'd like to see more Wisconsin traditions turned into Halloween costumes. Cheese curds for Halloween 2019? Let's make it happen.
