Wow day 9 already of this blogger challenge and today is to teach you something so as i have worked in the hospitality business for 10 years now,i will explain how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness!
1- Take a cool,clean and dry Guinness branded glass (nothing worse than if it is in another branded glass,it is so unprofessional).
2-Hold the glass under the tap at an angle of 45 degrees.
3-Pull the handle forward and fill the glass three quarters the way up making sure never to allow the tap spout to touch the liquid guinness.
4-Now you must leave it to settle for approximately 2 minutes.
5-Top up the glass by pushing the tap handle backwards until the head is just ever so slightly above the top of the glass. Never allow the stout to overflow and never use for example a knife to level the head.
6-Using a steady hand,give the customer his pint making sure that you do not allow overspill.
So there you go now,the perfect pint,so next time you ask for a pint of guinness,have a look and see if your bartender has done exactly the above!
