The Bass Brolly for a Perfect Black & Tan

Black & TanThis St. Patrick’s Day, make the perfect Black & Tan with your very own Brolly from Bass Ale. What is it? The Brolly, a British term for umbrella, is a triangular piece of metal with holes punched around the perimeter and 3 arms for packing atop your beer glass. Using this instead of the unreliable spoon back will result in a perfect Black & Tan every time. Best of all the Brolly is free on, except in you live in California, then you gotta pay a buck. Damn, politics.

Little did I know, people have been enjoying the Black & Tan for nearly 120 years!

Bass made this handy diagram to walk you through the process.
