Love Guinness, but are unsure what steps it takes to pour a perfect pint of the favorite Irish Stout? Follow these tips from Men’s Fitness magazine:

  1. Start with a clean, dry 20 oz Imperial pint class
  2. Hold the glass at a 45 degree angle and never allow the spout to touch the class
  3. Pull faucet, allowing the beer to fill the class.
  4. Allow for the nitrogen bubbles to surge, creating that perfect creamy head.
  5. Once the beer has settled (distinct gap between dark liquid and head), the glass is topped up slowly to create a domed effect on the head
  6. Give this creation of the perfect pint to an adoring customer

Now you know! Happy pouring!
