If you’re still not ready to head to a bar by Saint Patrick’s Day, you can pretend you’re at one by watching this video. Just pick up a six-pack of Guinness and then sit down at your kitchen table and watch this video. Pretend Terry Nixon, a bartender at Mr. Dooley’s Tavern in Boston, is pouring a Guinness for you.
Pouring other beers is pretty standard but pouring a Guinness the correct way is an art. Here, Terry shows how it’s done the right way. He’ll explain the proper way to drink it too (patience is key).
(I created this video several years ago at Mr. Dooley’s in Boston for the “Drink of the Week” series I produced for the Boston Globe and it’s one of my favorites.)
