John from Edwardsville IL sent us this great Black Velvet picture. Black Velvets (Guinness over cider) are great layered drinks for two reasons. One, the color difference in always dramatic with the light colored cider and, two, the taste differential between the stout and the cider is huge.
The picture shows a first edition layering tool with the logo in the center. Very rare!!
Thanks for the great picture John!! I'm sure the Black Velvets were great!
In a previous post I talked about finding layered beer combinations/recipes that use beers from the same brewer. Recently I picked up some of the new Guinness Blonde American Lager that appeared in my local grocery store and attempted to layer it with the flagship Guinness stout. The combination turned out great.
Now, what to call this recipe combination? A Black and Blonde? A Dark Blonde?
We would love to post your pictures in this blog. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
