St. Patrick’s day is among the greatest beer-drinking holidays, where millions collectively fill up the mighty pint of beer, toasting to the patron saint of Ireland.
When you reach for a drink tomorrow, any one of these beers will serve you quite well.
Key ingredients are roasted, malted barley, hops, yeast and water.
GUINNESS® beer is dark ruby red because of the way the ingredients are prepared. Some malted barley is roasted, in a similar way to coffee beans, which is what gives GUINNESS® its distinctive color.
In the pub or bar the perfect pint of GUINNESS® Draught is served using our famous 'two-part' pour. First, start with a clean, dry glass. Pour the GUINNESS® Draught into a glass tilted at 45 degrees, until it is three-quarters full. Allow the surge to settle before filling the glass completely to the top. Your perfect pint, complete with its creamy white head, is then ready to drink.
At home, you should let the can chill for at least 3 hours before pouring the contents of the can into a large glass in one smooth action.
