    I worked in a London pub run by an Irish couple with a lot of Irish clientele...

    "black and tan" was frowned upon as a name and called the drink a half and half... .. is that still the case in the UK/Ireland?..

    I was sure put in my place in no uncertain terms early on, regarding this...

    IRISH BLESSINGS FOR THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
    May the road rise up to meet you,
    But please do not meet up with anyone else.
    May the winds be at your back,
    And your coughs be in your elbow.
    May the sun shine upon your face,
    The rain fall upon your fields,
    And until we meet again, in no less than fourteen days,
    Though potentially up to four months,
    May God hold you in the palm of his thoroughly washed hand.
    Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

    May the road rise up to meet you,
    May your life not be too tough;
    But if you shouldn’t make it,
    I’ll be claiming all your stuff.

    This ones got the spirit. I think this singer was an original member of Dropkick.

    If I remember correctly, in the pubs here a "black and tan" was Guiness and Bass, and a "half and half" was Guinness and Harp.

    I could be wrong, though -- it's been a long time since I frequented pubs. I stopped going when smoking was banned in them. And then I stopped drinking Bass when A-B/InBev ruined it.
