TO mark St Patrick’s Day, America shoe company Nike has unveiled The Black And Tan. NikeBlog says the Nike SB Dunk Low Black & Tan  has been”inspired by the cloudy mix of Guinness and pale ale that is a Black & Tan”. Slash Foods hints:

A black and tanis equal parts stout (Guinness or otherwise) and lighter colored ale, often a Bass Pale Ale or Harp’s lager. Many an Irish barman will tell you that a layered black and tan is simply a Yank affectation and that in the homeland the two beers are simply poured together.

At this authentic Irish pub  in America, you can order Black O’Tan:

Thick-cut and hand-breaded, our onion rings are simply scrumptious. Try them dipped in our homemade Dublin sauce.

The Black and Tans were also a force created by Winston Churchill to police the Irish. They were brought to Ireland to fight the Irish nationalists in 1920.
