Guinness Black and Tan Set (Spoon and Glasses)

Pour your own black and tans with this set! Everything you need to craft a black and tan is included - just add beer. The set consists of a pair of Guinness Gravity pint glasses and a stainless steel pouring spoon. The Guinness logo is printed on the front of the glasses and is also imprinted on the spoon. Each of the glasses is also embossed with the Guinness harp and marked on the back at the imperial pint (19.215 oz) pour level. This set is perfect for marking a black and tan and makes a great gift idea for anyone that loves Guinness.

Features:

  • Brewery: Guinness
  • Glass Type: Imperial Pint Glasses
  • Size: 20 oz
  • Dimensions: 6.75 inches high
  • Marked on the back level with 06 - 13 at the Imperial pint (19.215 ounces) level
  • Pouring Spoon is stainless steel and has a loop for hanging
  • Officially licensed Guinness products

How to make the perfect black and tan (half and half):
1. Fill each pint glass half way with the pale lager (Bass Ale is typically used).
2. Place the spoon over the rim of one of the glasses. The spoon handle has a curve in it so it will stay in place.
3. Slowly pour Guinness over the inverted bowl of the spoon (Remember to do it slowly). The Guinness will cascade over the spoon and gently floats on top of the lager. Repeat for the process for the second pint glass.

Why does Guinness float on top?
Guinness has a lower relative density than the pale lager. If carefully poured, the Guinness will rest on top.

Variants of a half and half beer cocktail
Snake Bite: Guinness and Cider
Black and Red: Guinness and Red Lager
Black Velvet: Guinness and Champagne

History of the Black and Tan (Half and Half)
The term Black and Tan was born in England but is called a half and half in Ireland. This unique mixture of two different beers is thought to have been discovered and this beer cocktail in the 1700's. The name came from a color of a coat of a dog that inhabited the pub. Black and Tan was cataloged as a beer cocktail in bar publications in the late Eighteenth century.

Perfect Gift
I got this for my boyfriend and he loves it. The spoon that comes with it is awesome. The only thing that I was disappointed with was that it did not have it's own box, it just came in the shipping box with everything individually in it. It would have been better if it had a collectors box or something but I am still giving it 5 stars.

Excellent quality! I'd been looking for the perfect Christmas gift for my buddy who'd just recently discovered black and tans, and this made him go even more crazy over them. Definitely cannot be beat, especially with that price!
