  1. Harp's Lager is the most common. Guiness makes a Kilkenny Cream Ale.

    Smithwick's Ale or Murphy's Red Ale(better paired with Murphy's Irish Stout, IMO) are good too.

    1. If you use Guinnes and Harp it is not a black and tan.. its a half and half.

      Black and tan is generally Guinness and Bass.
