How to pour the perfect Guinness at home
Pouring the perfect can of Guinness requires a bit of finesse and knowledge. Master Brewer Fergal Murray, one of the world’s leading experts on Guinness brewing, reveals his secrets for how to pour the perfect pint. According to Murray, it all starts with the iconic two-part pour.
Start by opening the can and tilting it at a 45-degree angle. Pour the beer as directed in the video below. Slowly raise the can until your hand reaches the top of the glass before lowering it back down again.
Once you’ve finished the two-part pour, you’ll need to let the beer settle for about a minute before topping it off with a final slow and steady pour. This will give the beer enough time to form its iconic creamy head.
If done correctly, the perfect pint should have an even creamy texture throughout that showcases the flavor of Guinness perfectly.
Whether it’s a casual gathering with friends or an intimate night out, following Fergal Murray’s steps for the perfect Guinness pour will ensure that you enjoy a pint of perfection. Cheers!

Here is a customer review ( from Viator )
I was worried it wouldn’t be worth it to book this combination tour, when I could easily buy tickets to both experiences and do them on my own, but I am so glad I was wrong! This was a great and organized way to go through both the Jameson & Guinness experiences and as a solo traveler, it allowed me to be part of a group (and everyone on our tour was super friendly). Our guide also gave us a mini tour while we walked between the two locations and shared fun facts we didn’t learn on the other tours.
