Half 'n' Half mixtures? New ideas?

Are any of you experienced with making a good Black & Tan or Half 'n' Half? If so, have you found a nice mixture of beers to mix together? I'm trying different mixtures with Guinness starting today, and I'll post results later if anything turns out well.

I'm planning on doing a Storm King and Celebration black and tan one of these nights, would seem to be a bit of lovely fall mixification.

Wow, I just had a Guinness / Foster's and it was actually pretty good. I also mixed with a Michelob Marzen (unreleased except in the sampler pack), and it almost tastes exactly like the Michelob Black & Tan that you purchase in the bottle.
I saw a Guinness Extra Stout 6-bottle pack at the store, and chose to use the canned Guinness Draught over the extra stout. Maybe I should try the Extra Stout version with Foster's or something else.
A family friend of ours asked for a Black & Tan with Budweiser, and that sounded kinda' funny, but when we tried it, it was actually an awesome blend.

I've never heard of either of those. I'd love to start a nice little Beer Shop for the connoisseur's out there. Would be a great place to just enjoy the taste of a beer.

Unless that Extra Stout comes from Ireland(highly unlikely) I'd be careful about using it cuz imnsho, it sucks.
I used to mix Sheaf Stout with some cheaper macros like Shaefer, Rainier, Hamms and the result was pretty good. Then I decided that the Sheafs neat was well...neat.;^) Then it disappeared from my area. :^(

There are loads of those sorts of beer shops around, depending on your area. Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale is readily available all over the U.S. (assuming you're in the U.S.). Is likely considerably hoppier than your normal beers, but hey, live a little.
For the standard plug, if you're looking for info on good beers available in your area, hit www.ratebeer.com for a few pointers.
