Half dark stout beer and half pale ale, there is a reason the half and half has remained a classic order in Irish bars around the world. The crisp ale goes in first, but it’s the smooth stout--carefully poured in after so it stays on top--that really makes the drink so visually special.



  1. Pour the pale ale into a pint glass. Turn a spoon upside down over the glass and slowly pour the stout over the spoon; this will keep the beers split in the glass, creating an even line between them. Enjoy immediately.
