a Perfect Pint in Dublin
of the highlights I experienced on a past travel writers trip
to Dublin was a visit to the Guinness Storehouse, where an expert
gave me a detailed demonstration in the are of pouring a perfect
pint. Guinness is a renowned Irish beer, and known throughout
the world. At the Guinness Storehouse there is a well done museum
on the history of Guinness, a great shop to buy fun items to
take home, and a special section in the museum where visitors,
including me, were allowed to experience how to pour a perfect
pint, and received a diploma to take home.
glass observatory bar on the top of Guinness Storehouse is a
fantastic venue that offers the ultimate sunset view of Dublin,
while enjoying Irish inspired small plates and delicious local
cheese with Guinness or your favorite cocktail. This is absolutely
a destination not to miss when in Dublin.
Guinness Technique for pouring a perfect pint is as follows:
Pick up a Guinness pint glass (16 ounces) and hold it just under
the Golden Harp (The Symbol for Guinness since 1759). Hold it
under the nozzle in a tipped position as you would when pouring
champagne into a flute and then pull down on the nozzle until
the pint is filled just to the top of the Golden Harp. Then
set the pint on the bar to rest, which gives it balance and
the nitrogen is calmed. Next hold the pint just underneath the
Golden Harp and push the nozzle away away from you to get just
beer and no more gas in the pint. You should now have a beautiful
foam on top ,and you have successfully poured a 'Perfect Pint'
with a rim to be proud of, and you're ready to make a true Irish
toast. Slainte! Visit https://www.guinness-storehouse.com

An Irish Toast:
the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you."
