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

    1. I have a proper mustache for catching the Guinness foam. It also works well for Pipeline Porter, Nut Brown, and Oatmeal Stout.


    2. If I’m not mistaken, this stuff tastes like stale coffee and doesn’t even have carbonation…


    3. we just got these in at work.. theyre awesome. unlike you casefag


    4. A user manual is not necessary to enjoy Guinness.


    5. I’ll be stealing a few of these from the pub


    6. From what I’ve heard, Guinness in the US tastes nothing like Guinness in Ireland. If you want good beers, stay away from imports, the processing and pasteurizing kill the flavor, and you never know how long they’ve been in shipment. And this glass…just a repackaging of the same product to make a beer that’s been around for centuries seem brand new.

      I like a good stout…there are many out there that beat the hell out of Guinness. Bells Expedition from Michigan is a great American stout.


    7. No other good stout readily available across the US though.


      • Bells, Rogue, Dogfishhead, all great Stouts made by US brewers. Odds are, no matter where you live, there’s a local brewer somewhere nearby making a stout that is at least as good as Guinness, if not better.


    8. I can’t wait to insert my penis into one of these…


    9. Wow…apparently a few uneducated beer drinkers responding here. First, Guinness is actually a deep red, not black as our good friend Puulaahi notes in his original post. To be honest, I’m not sure what the new pint design is expected to accomplish since Guinness has been perfect since 1759 when Arthur first took the tiny island of Ireland by storm. Second, it doesn’t really taste like coffee…the bitterness you taste is the result of the burnt barley and wheat (which is what not only gives it the dark color, but also locks in the natural vitamins and nutrients of the grain…hence the slogan “Guinness is Good For You”)…if you wanna be a “girl” and drink it without the bitterness, add a little black currant…gives it a sweet flavor…but beware, if you’re a man and order this in a Irish pub, they may take you out back and kick your ass. Third, cashmods is correct in that Guinness has no carbonation because it’s poured using a CO2 and Nitrogen mix (“Guinness Gas”) which is also why the bubbles fall instead of rise.

      Finally, while I had no issues falling in love with Guinness from the first sip, I have been told, and have told others, that it’s an acquired taste…learn to appreciate the history, the story, and take a moment to really consider the flavor before making your decision on it. For anyone on the U.S. East Cost, the best pints I’ve found are at Scruffy Murphy’s in Toronto, Canada…any real Irish pub in NYC, and The Dubliner in Washington, DC. Happy Hunting!
