+1 to Guinness and Bass... Right now I am using my Karankawa Pale Ale + Guinness Clone Irish Stout. It is quite tasty.

For a Black and Tan: Bass on the bottom, Guinness Draught on top. I should have homebrewed ESB and Stout ready soon, will have to try them together.

For a Half and Half: Harp Lager on the bottom, Guinness Draught on top.

And for a Snakebite, Strongbow Cider on the bottom, Guinness Draught on top.

Aspall's better than Strongbow, but I can't bring myself to mix it.

Used to be Guinness and Harps, but I don't care for Guinness anymore. One of the local bars has Young's double chocolate on tap. I may have to try some black and tan combos with that.
