Yesterday was Arthur’s Day, so fix yourself a black and tan.  If you want to impress your friends tonight with some interesting variations of this popular drink, then keep reading.  Many of you probably didn’t even know the Irish version of the black and tan isn’t the version we get from bartenders in the U.S.  In all of the recipes below, you pour the Guinness second over an upside-down spoon to get the best pour.

American standard:  Bass and Guinness
Irish standard (a “Blacksmith”):  Almost all Smithwick’s, topped with 1.5 inches or so of Guinness
Australian standard:  Toohey’s New (pale) and Toohey’s old (dark)
Half and Half:  Harp and Guinness
Black Castle: Newcastle and Guinness
Black & Sam:  Sam Adams Boston Lager and Guinness
Black & Blue:  Blue Moon and Guinness

September 24th 2009 marks the day 250 years ago that Arthur Guinness started the great brewing tradition that is Guinness. The folks at St. James Gate are planning a world wide party to celebrate with such acts as the Black Eyed Peas, Tom Jones, and Sean Paul. The party starts at the St. James Gate Brewery and continues with live music throughout Dublin and in other cities such as Lagos and Kuala Lumpur. via

No party truly starts in Kuala Lumpur until Tom Jones starts movin’ those hips.
