One of the regular quality control tasks at The Perfect Black And Tan is ensuring our beer layering tool continues to work properly for our customers. Thus, about once a year, we take some Bass Ale and Guinness Draught and test the tool to ensure it still does pour a "Perfect Black and Tan".
We are happy to report that the tool passed our testing again in 2014. With this you can rest assured that the tool really will pour the perfect black and tan layered beer.

Landshark Lager from the Margaritaville Brewing Co had always interested me. Kind of an interesting name and label. I picked up a case over the weekend to see how it layered up. Turns out that it tastes similiar to Corona and layers like it too. Its light color makes it a good middle layer beer. As the pictures above show, it layers nicely over a Stockyard Oatmeal Stout and a Black Butte Porter as dark bottom layers.
I always like finding black and tan layer combinations from the same brewery. In this case I had picked up a Sierra Nevada combo pack that had their Blindfold Black IPA, their Snow Wit White IPA and their Nooner Session IPA. With the Black IPA on the bottom, I found two good combinations. I think the Snow Wit gave the best dark-on-bottom layered beer combination. What do you think?
