‘It’s a lovely day for a Guinness’
Love it or hate it, there’s no denying the history and passion instilled by the one drink that brings together an entire nation. Ireland, that is. Introduced to the grassy hills and cobblestone roads of Ireland that were no doubt- already beer soaked- 258 years ago, Guinness has long since been the beating heart of Irish tradition and values- as far as food and drink goes anyway. There is perhaps nothing more sacred when it comes to a pint of Guinness in Ireland than the pour. An improper pour could result in the glass of the good stuff being thrown so quickly across the room, narrowly missing Mr. O’shea’s head, that it’d hit the wall before you’d even notice the drink was gone. Yes, in Ireland, they take they’re Guinness very, very seriously. So, how does one properly pour a pint of the delectable ruby red?
