When Guinness compiled the Black List, few realized how much people had been experimenting with Guinness over the years. In fact, mixtures of many different variations for centuries. The names of many of these drinks vary from one part of the world to another, but the look and flavors have been entertaining beer lovers everywhere since 1759.
Fat Molly...Guinness & Fat Tire
It is rumored that anyone who drinks Fat Molly’s gets an old Irish curse cast upon
them. The curse claims the drinker will awaken in the morning not to the beautiful woman
he brought home the night before, but to an unsightly and portly beast!
Chicago Irish...Guinness & 312
The best of Chicago met the best of Ireland…and they had a beer baby…in a glass. Hey,
stranger things have happened. You read about the Fat Molly!
Black Arrogance…Guinness & Arrogant Bastard
This not so little concoction is rumored to have started in a basement bar in the Streeterville
neighborhood of Chicago. The name of the bar is uncertain but it starts with a T and ends
with an imothy O’Toole’s. Our very own Deron Powell started drinking these after work.
Meet him and you will understand the origin of the drink’s name.
Dirty Hoe…Guinness & Hoegaarden
Found at the corner of Fairbanks and Ontario.
chocolate covered cherry…Guinness & cherry wheat
Guinness and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat....Sweet and Simple.
Black & Sam…Guinness & Sam Adams Lager
Dublin vs. Boston…Stout vs. Lager…Barley vs. Hops. This is would be a fight for the
ages but instead they float together smoothly into a mixed beer of delicious yummy belly
smiling goodness. In other words order one and be happy with yourself.
Black & Tan...Guinness & Smithwick’s
The Black & Tan has been the world’s favorite pint
for a century and continues to be a time-honored classic.
Midnight...Guinness & a Dash of Port
Believed to have originated with the Royal Flying Corps. After dinner, a few officers took to
drinking Guinness instead of port. Both decanters happened to meet at the head of the table.
Absent-mindedly, the officer poured both drinks into his glass finding the result quite enjoyable!
Half & Half...Guinness & Harp
A drink with many names: arf and arf, long ship, & light and dark.
Wee recommend equal measures of Guinness and Harp lager for the finest results.
Black Goose...Guinness & Honker’s Ale
Chicago’s own Goose Island Honker’s Ale combined with Guinness.
A Black & Tan of a different feather. Treat yourself!
Snakebite...Guinness & Cider
About a century ago, the apple crop in the west was devastated by hungry
snakes, resulting in meager Cider rations for the locals. To their delight,
the taste of Guinness made the ideal partner for the sweet taste of their cider.
Black & Blue...Guinness & Blue Moon
The combination of Guinness and Blue Moon is quickly becoming a new favorite.
