Luck O’ the Irish

Here is a classic for all of you clover hunters... Two of my favorite beers mixed into one!

Black and Tan
Pour a Guinness (black beer) into a chilled stein
Grab a spoon and CAREFULLY pour a Bass (tan beer) over the spoon and on top of the Guinness.
If all goes well the Bass will “sit” on top of the Guinness hence the name black and tan. May take a little practice...
Cheers!
Chef Mike

Re: Luck O the Irish

One of my favorites. Guinness and Pilsner Urquell will keep their distance even better. They don't want to mix. I'm a hop head, I like Pilsner Urquell.

Re: Luck O’ the Irish

You really expect a glass of Guinness to sit still long enough for all of that to happen..

I suggest you walk into a pub in Ireland and suggest that bass thing. I suggest you dial the emergency services first ( all of them ) you might need them

Re: Luck O’ the Irish

I suggest Irish Carbombs. They are exactly what they sound like.

Re: Luck O’ the Irish

I prefer Guinness and Harp, they are both made by the same company. If you get impatient either one is very good by themselves.

Thanks Chef Mike for reminding everyone of this great way to drink Barley, Malt and Hops.

Re: Luck O’ the Irish

Funny, I find if I carefully pour my wife a glass of Irish whiskey, she sits lightly atop my lap.

But to each his own.

For the life of me I can't imagine why anyone would want to treat a Guinness so poorly.

Would that happen to me if I poured her one?

Re: Luck O’ the Irish

Do take Dave's warning to heart - even with Irish friends outside of Ireland. This is a British concoction - although quite good if well drawn.

The name Black and Tan has an unfortunate association with the British troops known by the same name who were sent to suppress the Irish revolution. Some Irish are still rather "testy" about it.

Re: Luck O the Irish

My favorite is "Dark Side of the Moon" (sometimes called Black and Blue)
made from Guinness poured over Blue Moon

It's a well known fact that a decent pint of Guinness can't get found outside of Ireland , mind you in the south of the country, you can't get a decent Guinness, only Murphys. Adulterating a pint of the black stuff is regarded as heresy even suggesting a drop of cordial. In London you'll see lots of cordial and Guinness etc not in Ireland , no , never.

Why mess with liquid perfection

Btw don't drink it myself, but have several committed imbiber friends
