The Perfect Pour: Black & Tan

Traditionally, a Black & Tan is “a drink made from a blend of pale ale and a dark beer such as a stout or porter”.

Commonly, a Black & Tan is a homemade concoction but it is also available pre-made by a variety of beer makers, one specifically being Yuengling.

While a Black & Tan is a simple drink to make, there’s certainly an art to it. Shine recently published a fail proof way to pour a perfect Black & Tan.


1. Fill a glass halfway with Bass or another ale; let the foam settle.

2. Place a spoon face down over the glass and slowly pour stout, such as Guinness, over the back of the spoon.

3. Let the stout settle. Spoon off some foam and top with more stout.
