How To Pour A Perfect Pint of Guinness
There are a few skills everyone should possess. One of them is how to parallel park while traffic is waiting behind you. Another is pouring a pint of Guinness. Whether you're pouring from an honest to blarney tap, or from a draught can, there are certain tips for pulling it off correctly. Please note, the little shamrock carved in the foam is purely optional.
First, you have to use the traditional tulip shaped British pint glass (about 20 oz.). Hold the glass at a 45 degree angle to the tap and fill until the glass is about 2/3 full. Next, let the Guinness settle for at least 3 minutes. Don't forget about it though, nothing is worse than making a customer stare at their not yet served Guinness for too long. Finally, top of the pint and let it settle once more before serving.
