Well, it looks like it's time to duat off the old history book again (phoooot-**cough, cough**). Careful, the term "Black and Tan" can be very offensive in Ireland, since it refers to a British paramilitary formation used to quell growing unrest in Ireland in the early 1920's; the Black and Tans were accused of many arbitrary reprisals and atrocities against the Irish civilian population. However, when referring to the drink, Black & Tan refers to the uniforms worn by the officers, of the Irish & English soldiers. So a Black & Tan should be made with Bass, or another English ale. A drink made with Harp and Guiness is called a Half&Half. Other tasty options are: Lynie's Berrywiess-Brusied Berry Boddington's-Black&Gold NewCastle or Schmittwick's - Black & Brown (personal favorite) Etc. use your imagination.

You can always use Boddington's for the tan....as it uses the same draught process as Guinness.

Good, but isn't it supposed to be Harp ale, not Bass? [Guinness makes Harp also]
