You're in the mood to kick back and sip on a rich, creamy stout, transfixed as the building foam gives way to that sweet black nectar. Then again, the thought of enjoying a crisp, clean ale or lager also has your taste buds tingling.
For years, connoisseurs of premium beer have enjoyed a concoction known as a black and tan: an ale, pilsner, lager or cider crowned by a stout or porter. When correctly prepared, the "black" beer mysteriously floats atop the underlying "tan" beer without mixing, distinctively capturing the attributes of both beers in the same glass.
Most black and tan enthusiasts commission their trusted barkeep to construct this legendary drink on their behalf. Though this remains a dependable and time-honored approach, it does little for folks who wish to enjoy the black and tan on their own turf, wrought to their own exacting specifications.
Brütül (brew tool) did something. We logged hundreds of hours designing and building the world's most versatile beer layering device, the Lagerhead® Black and Tan Turtle. Equipped with the "Snapper" bottle opener, this handsome Chelonian pours a delicious layered beer time after time.
