Bobby: Hey everybody, I'm Bobby Flay, and welcome to Ireland. On every main street in every town in Ireland, you’ll find signs on buildings. Sign of all shapes and sizes, and the one you’ll see the most is Guinness.
Owning 70% of the entire beer market, it is the drink that quenches the thirst of Ireland. The Guinness legacy begins in 1759, when Arthur Guinness entered a 9000 year leases for a sum of $45 dollars a year. Their recipe of hops, malt, roasted barley, and yeast hasn’t change in over 240 years. Pumping out two and a half million pints of stout every day, Guinness is the largest brewery in Europe. You don’t just taste Guinness, you experience it. And in order to do that, you’ll need to serve it their way.
Fergal: So Bobby, we're going to pour a pint of Guinness.
Bobby: Yeah. Let’s see it.
Fergal: Six steps to perfection.
Bobby: Fergal Murray is the head brewer at Guinness. And he's here showing me this six steps involved in pouring the perfect pint of Guinness.
I want you to walk me through it. So the first step.
Fergal: Yep, clean, brand new glass. Second step, into the 45 degree angle.
Bobby: Right. Of course the third step is what we're doing. Keep going, keep going. Very good. Keep the handle down. All the way up. Up we go. That’s it.
Fergal: Okay. The fourth step is we're going to allow it to settle.
Fergal: You can see now where the gas is coming out of the solution, rising to the top, giving us that nice thick creamy white head.
Bobby: You don’t finish pouring the Guinness until it settles. That way, the bartender can talk with customers. And then, step five.
Fergal: Now you’re going to pull the tap away from you. Straight it out. Straight up. That’s it. Lovely, that’s what we do.
Bobby: Is that enough?
Fergal: Step six is presenting it.
Bobby: Presenting it again.
Fergal: To the consumer. Perfect, fully finish. In perfect condition.
Bobby: I really feel there should be a step seven which is taste.
Fergal: I think you should probably go for it.
Bobby: You think?
That smooth, creamy, refreshing. Ireland’s 240 year old stout of choice.
That’s so good.
