A tradition in the Kelley house for the past 10 years is the Black and Tan. These can be spotted around here throughout the month of March! The Black and Tan served in the U.S. uses a Stout and an Ale layered together.
Fill a straight sided clear beer mug or glass half way with Harp Lager.
Okay, clearly, we don’t seem to have straight-sided beer glasses at our house! It still worked in a variety of glasses, including a margarita glass!
The Guiness is more carbonated (and with a lighter gas mixture) and will float on top of the Harp. The result is striking. If you like good beer, this is a fun drink.
Black and Tans originated in England from what I can tell and are poured in the opposite order there so that they mix together. You can also buy ‘pre-mixed’ black and tans commercially. We prefer the layered version. Give it a try.
