So what is your favorite combination of homebrew recipes for making Black and Tans? I know that the obvious would be a Guinness clone and a Bass clone, or Harp clone.

What other interesting combinations have you come up with?

Maybe a porter instead of a stout?
There is speculation that the Black and Tan started with porters, not stouts...

and what about the tan?
I was thinking of something like the Haus Pale...

The Black Moon combination of Guinness and Blue Moon sounds interesting...

Rosehill, as in Kirkland???
I lived in both Redmond and Kirkland, used to drive over Rosehill all the time.

That's the place. I used to work in Kirkland and lived in Redmond. I think I was their every night.

I still talk to Kerry every once in a while.

Where were/are they at on Rosehill? I last lived up there in the early 1990's, and for some reason I don't remember them. Were they even around back then?

Ahh... just looked it up... isnt that just past where Waldo's was/is ???

Guinness and Blue moon (i called it a Black & Blue) was quite terrible i must say, the only reason we made it was because at a bar i frequent one night they have $6 Guinness and Blue moon pitchers....although i may be a bit biased because i'm not a big fan of either beers...

I've had a Black Magic which was Guinness and Magic Hat #9 which was ok...and i've had a black and gold which is yuengling porter and yuengling premium, that was pretty good

There's a pub in Minneapolis named O'Donovan's that I've gotten black & tans made with Murphy's Stout and Amber. Very delicious.
