Here is a small collection of layered beers I had tried over the past few weeks.
Here are some step-by-step instructions for finding and making a great 3 layer beer.
(1) Find a good dark-on-bottom layered beer combination
(2) Test if the potential middle-layer beer will layer under Guinness. If it does, you may have a winner!
(3) Try making the 3-layer combination. Be careful not to pour the first bottom layer too high. You don't want to run out of room for the Guinness top layer
Here is a great picture from Craig in Beermingham AL. He says he loves the layering tool and that he has become obnoxiously obsessed with layering beers.
TOP: Boddingtons Pub Ale
BOTTOM: Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar
This combination has a nice layer separation.
All the triple layer black and tans I've found so far were of the light/dark/light or dark/light/dark variety and I had been searching for a dark/light/lighter layered beer for a while. Well, I finally have a really nice one!
A few weeks ago I found a nice light/lighter combo with a Franconia Wheat and a Tap Room #21 Copper Lager on the top. Later I tried Guinness over the Copper Lager. Both these combinations layered very nicely, so A + B = C, right? You can see the final result in the third picture... a great triple layer!
Now on to finding a lighter/light/dark combination... ;)
