So I've recently been trying to get into Black and Tans, but my first attempt was rather unsuccessful. I tried to mate Thirsty Dog Christmas Ale with Great Lakes EF Porter and the result wasn't what I was hoping for. I'm still hoping to pair the remaining bottles of Porter with something really interesting but am kind of stumped - do I want a sweeter white ale like Bell's Winter Ale? A hoppy, strong IPA? Pumpkin Ale possibly? What would you guys recommend? Also, while we're on the subject, what are your favorite Black and Tan combos in general? Would love to hear 'em!
