Pouring the Perfect Pint of Guinness

Last updated 5 years ago

There’s nothing more Irish than a Guinness—though enjoying a glass is easy, pouring the perfect pint is a science. A good pint of Guinness has a small frothy head topped off with a four-leaf clover design. How can you pull a professional-grade Guinness pint every time? This video shows the way.

To start, the glass should always be at a 45-degree angle. Your first pour should only fill the glass three-quarters of the way. You may have a big, frothy head at this point, so let the beer rest for two minutes before continuing. Watch this video to see how to create a sudsy shamrock with a few flicks of the wrist.
