St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us, and I’m sure many folks out there will spend at least part of the day downing Guinness or Bass Ale. Some of you might even enjoy a “Black and Tan”, a layered drink with ale on the bottom and stout on the top. If you’ve ever wanted to make a Black and Tan at home but just weren’t good with a spoon (you pour ale into a pint glass and then slowly pour stout over the back of a spoon into the glass), you might want to check out a freebie Bass is giving out:
It’s called the “Brolly”. Brolly is the English word for “umbrella”, and the little widget that Bass is giving out works in much the same way: you pour a glass half full of pale ale, then place the Brolly on top of the glass. You then pour stout into the triangle at the center of the Brolly. The stout slowly trickles out of small holes on the sides of the triangle, making a perfect Black and Tan every time!
Bass reps might give these out at your local watering hole on St. Patrick’s Day, but you can sign up to get one for free at bass.com. You’ve gotta be 21 years of age or older, this offer is not available in certain states, yadda-yadda-yadda, etc., etc.
