  How to pour a perfect
GUINNESSBlack and Tan

These are the directions for pouring from a tap, either at a pub or on a kegerator.

1. Hold your pint glass at an angle, and fill just over halfway with Bass Ale*.

2. Slow the flow control of the Draught Guinness tap down to a trickle.

3a. Fill to the top, letting the Draught Guinness hit the side of the glass...


3b. Pour Draught Guinness over an upside-down spoon to dispense the flow.

4. Let surge and settle. Enjoy!

* You can substitute Bass Ale with Smithwick's, Harp Lager, cider, etc.

Variations of the Guinness Black and Tan theme...
Half and Half
In Ireland, a traditional Half and Half consists of half warm or room temperature Guinness and half chilled Guinness. In the early days, refrigeration was of course unavailable. As refrigeration came into existence in the 20th century, it was found that a mixture of the two temperatures created the perfect drinking temperature for Guinness. Most Guinness poured in Ireland is served at about this temperature, roughly 44 degrees Fahrenheit (6° Celsius). In the United States, Half and Half consists of Harp's Lager topped with Guinness. Half and half implies that both ales come from the Guinness Brewery.
