Default Video! Pouring a Black and Tan

This topic comes up from time to time, so I thought I'd make a quick video. If you're using widget cans/bottles, pour as soon as you crack the lid, while the beer is still foamy; it makes it far easier to achieve that clean separation. I used my DIY black and tan spoon with the "lift as you pour" method. The same result can be achieved with a bent tablespoon. A "turtle" spoon that fits over the rim of the glass is just as effective and perhaps slightly easier to master.

I just happened to have a bit of goodness left in the glass I used for "video practice" when I read this. Here's what it looks like after a few sips:

Ha! Leinie's HoneyWeiss! I wanted to use Pilsner Urquell, but I had limited success with it last night (you need a REALLY careful pour...but it can be done). I had a nice amber, but I didn't think the separation would be distinct enough on film. So, I settled for the perfect color/weight beer at a slight compromise to tradition.

It's not such a bad combo.

And I'm getting druck.
