Mixing 2 beers together may sound like something that was done only when stores were down to the dregs, but this thoroughly Americano-ized version presented here has become a staple in modern tap offerings.
It's important to note, that it is a lot easier to make this when you're using taps, than when you're pouring from bottles.
A "tulip glass" looks like this, and is basically the one you always get at the bar w/ the Guinness logo stenciled on it. For some reason it's just easier to use those to make these things.
Other commonly used ales and lagers are Bass, Harp, Killian's and we here at Pinky Mixology often prefer using Old Speckled Hen.
Seriously, that upside-down spoon trick only works when you're pouring from a tap, which is not as forceful as the momentum created by a bottle-neck. the right-ways spoon catches that downward motion and prevents it from spearing straight through.
