The Art and Science of Pouring Guinness

Last updated 5 years ago

Guinness, one of the world’s most famous beers, has a distinct flavor and a rich, creamy head. Pouring a pint correctly, however, requires precise technique to avoid over- or under-filling the glass, and to provide the customer with the signature Guinness experience.

This video will show you how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness. You will learn what angle you should hold the glass at, how fast you should fill it up, and the why you should let the pint rest on the bar just shy of full for about a minute before you top it off.

Pouring the perfect pint is just one of the many essential skills you will learn when you enroll at Professional Bartending Schools of America. For more information about our bartender school locations near you, call us today at (513) 542-3500.
