Brown and Tan

Well, it is St. Patrick’s Day! And as such, we felt obliged to post up a drink of the week recipe. There are numerous St. Patty’s Day drinks. So we went after one that isn’t often seen. We could be wrong on this but we have not seen a Brown and Tan ordered or anyone really drinking it. It is usually the Irish Car Bomb or something with Jameson. So, here is the recipe for the brown and tan.


  • 1 Bottle(12oz) Guinness
  • 1 Bottle(12oz) Harp Lager
This is really easy to make but you do have to be careful when pouring so that you maintain the separation of the beer. Gently pour the harp lager into a glass. Grab a spoon and hold it in the glass about an inch above the Harp. Make sure it is dome side up and the tip is slightly pointing down. Carefully pour the Guinness. Wallah! The brown and tan.
