A black and blue beer drink is a brand-specific variation of the black and tan. Instead of a pale ale, Blue Moon (a witbier) is the layer below the Guinness and adds a refreshing citrus note after the dark, dry stout is gone.

Many bars have stout on tap with a black and tan spoon attached to pour the Guinness over. But if you are pouring at home a bar spoon will work, the trick to the layers is a slow pour.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the Blue Moon into a pint glass.

  2. Float the Guinness on top to fill the glass, by pouring it over a bar spoon (or Black and Tan spoon) over the Blue Moon.
