Black & Tan

Wait, a black and tan? Isn’t that a blend of stout and pale ale? Or porter and lager? Or beer and cider? Yes, yes, and no– that last one is a Snakebite, but let us tell you about Breakside Black & Tan. We love the idea of blending dark and light beers to make something that’s different and distinct, more than the sum of its parts. We thought that we’d give it a shot and release our own version.

Our take on this age-old idea veers into some uncharted territory by using BOURBON BARREL-AGED STOUT as the ‘black’ component. The ‘tan’ is made from young golden beer and some Bourbon barrel-aged Scottish ale. The 40/60 blend of aged and young beer pops with flavor, yet manages to stay easy drinking.
