Guinness has just launched its new pint glass to the nation, specifically designed so you guys can enjoy the perfect pint of the black stuff. It’s the first change to the iconic tulip glass in 10 years sporting a thicker base for a better grip and a taller, slimmer design.
Watch out for the new glass in pubs and bars across the UK and let us know what you think..
Here are some top tips for enjoying the perfect pint of Guinness this weekend. Let’s hope the sun shines!
How to drink the perfect pint of Guinness
Hold the glass with the Guinness harp facing you and your thumb over the harp
Never look down. Look at the horizon and bring the glass to your mouth, not your mouth to the glass
Take a sip, breaking the seal of the head of your pint
Enjoy the Guinness cream moustache left on the top of your lip
Each time you take a drink from the pint, hold the glass in the same position and repeat above, letting the liquid flow underneath the head of the pint
Expect to experience the malty sweetness at the front of your mouth, the roasted flavour at the side and the distinctive Guinness bitterness at the back
