In Reply To #1 Black and tans have never quite "been my thing", but I suggest you try Guinness nitro can over Bass Pale ale. That's been my favorite so far. Saranac's isn't bad, and Mississippi mud isn't bad either, if you can find it. Bend your self a nice spoon and pour some Guinness over Bass, or Harp if you want an all Irish B&T.

As much as I love Yeungling's Lager, I would strongly advise avoiding their Black and Tan....I had this one after scarfing down about a half ton of ribs at a rib fest here in the Pittsburgh area one labor day weekend....and I woke up with the headache from hell the next morning....but that's only part of the story....When I took a pain killer for the headache, I tossed big time.....I had not worshiped the porcelin God like that since college......I don't know if the Y B&T didn't mix well with the ribs or the pain killer or what, but I haven't had a Y B&T since......If you drink it, don't eat ribs I guess! My personal opinion is that beers are not for mixing like cocktail type drinks....B&Ts, Half & Halfs, Black Hoes....I am not so sure those are good combinations......to each is own, but my stomach sure doesn't agree with them!

Well everything that is being said in here about black and tan is same old same old stuff. My favorite so far is Mississippi Mud black and tan. It's good beer, lot's of black + lot's of tan = lot's of black and tan. Guinness over Bass is the standard, there are others out there. I recommend this one.
In response to #7: Yuengling's isn't a true B&T, however, I've found it to be better than their Lager and surely better than their Lite. Maybe it was the ribs? I've never tried a Mississpi Mud, but until I do, I have to go with Yuengling's as a bottled B&T. As far as a true one, I'll stick to a Murphy's.
