Black and Tan Recipes

Standard Operating Procedure for the Lagerhead® Turtle:

Start by selecting your beer. The canned Irish stouts brewed by Guinness®, Murphy's® and Beamish® work very well with the Turtle, and are highly recommended for the top (black) layer. Suggestions for the bottom (tan) layer can be found in the recipes listed below.

Experimentation is Essential.

Simply chill the beer, then half-fill a standard pint glass with the bottom beverage (pour a good head so you liberate the CO2). Place the Lagerhead® Turtle on the rim of the glass, then gradually pour the Irish stout over the turtle's back to form the top layer.
