Fun Facts

  • The term "Black and Tan" likely originated in England, where consumers have blended different beers since at least the seventeenth century.
  • The name "black and tan" had earlier been used to describe the coats of dogs, such as the black and tan coon-hound.
  • The earliest recorded usage of the term "Black and Tan" in the drink context is from 1881, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, in the American magazine Puck.
  • Special Black and Tan SpoonPreparation: To prepare a Black and Tan, fill a glass halfway with pale ale then add the stout. The top layer is best poured slowly over an upside-down tablespoon placed over the glass to avoid splashing and mixing the layers. A specially designed black-and-tan spoon is bent in the middle so that it can balance on the edge of the pint-glass for easier pouring.
