The Perfect Pint - By Avery
Now many a bar and many a bartender are well versed in how to pour a proper pint o' Guinness, but to pour the perfect pint, one must add a bit o' flair as Avery demonstrates.
"I start with a clean, dry Guinness pint glass. It's important to use a Guinness glass not only to put our favorite beer in its own glass, but the design of the glass helps with the pour as well."
"Holding the glass at about a 45 degree angle, I'll fill the glass up to the harp image - which is roughly 75% full. As I get up to the harp, I'll straighten the glass to where I am pouring with the glass vertical as the level hits that 75% mark."
"The next step is to let it all settle. We set the glass down on the bar and let the beer settle for at least two minutes. You'll notice when you do the initial pour that it is very creamy as the foam settles throughout the glass. Giving it a couple of minutes leaves a nice, dark glass of beer with just the right amount of a foamy head on top."
"To finish the pour and add our shamrock, I'll slowly pour more beer into the vertical glass while moving it to trace the shamrock. Notice that I haven't fully opened the tap like I did earlier when filling the glass to the harp. With this slow pour, I'll end up tracing over the shamrock shape probably 7 or 8 times until the head of the beer reaches the top of the glass and our shamrock sits proudly on top. Then, it's time to enjoy!"
