Above are two examples of how easy it is to make a 'dark on bottom' layered beer drink with the Perfect Black and Tan beer laying tool. Can a spoon do this?
General rules of thumb for making black and tan beers:
It was a Saturday and I had finished all the yard work before it got too hot. Then had some time to kill before the college football game I wanted to watch started. What to do, what to do?... Go to the grocery store for beer of course!
I picked up a 6-pack of Mirror Pond Pale Ale (Deschutes Brewery) and Session Black Lager (Full Sail Brewing), both of which I had never tried before. The Session Black was appealing for two reasons. One, they came is unusual 11oz bottles and two, black lagers generally work well for a top layer.
As can be seen, with the pale ale on the bottom and black lager on the top, I had a very nice black and tan layer effect and a great tasting combination.
I've updated the black and tan beer recipe list with 20 new combinations. See black and tan beer recipes link. The new ones are at the bottom and the list now has 169 items! I've also categorized each entry as:
If you have any layered beer combos to add let me know.
