Pouring the perfect Guinness Pint


Wow, what an amazing time I’ve had in Dublin. One of the things I always wanted to do in Dublin was pour my own pint of Guinness. This is such an amazing opportunity that I think everyone should take advantage of if they are ever in Dublin. You can pour your own pint at the Guinness Storehouse or there are a few pubs that will let you pour your own pint if you ask. I went to Ned O’Sheas Pub to learn how to pour a pint and had a blast! It is an excellent pub near the river in the Viking Quarters with an amazing atmosphere. You can pour your own Guinness pint, and find a variety of traditional Irish dishes. The Guinness stew is a great dish to have on a chilly day while sipping on a pint of Guinness. Finally, after pouring the perfect pint you can celebrate by drinking the pint and take home the certificate they give you with your name on it. They also have t-shirts that says “I POURED THE PERFECT PINT AT NED O’SHEA’S DUBLIN” for €15. For anyone who’s interested in checking out Ned O’Shea’s click here: http://www.nedosheas.ie

How to pour the perfect Guinness pint:

  1. Tilt the glass at a 45-degree angle
  2. Open the tap by pulling it all the way forward until it reaches just underneath the harp
  3. Set the glass down and let the Guinness sit for 2 minutes. This allows the beer to settle
  4. Once the beer is settled, put your glass back up to the tap and finish filling it, so you get that nice foamy top as shown in the picture above
  5. Enjoy!!!
