Mother & I brought my cousin Cliff from NZ to the Guinness Storehouse so he could learn to pour the perfect pint!
Here’s the how to…

THE PERFECT PINT;
STEP 1
Take a cool, clean, dry, Guinness branded glass.
STEP 2
Hold the glass under the tap at an angle of 45 degrees.
STEP 3
Pull the handle forward until it is horizontal and fill the glass to between 15mm and
20mm (about ¾”) from the top. Never put the tap spout into the Guinness.
STEP 4
Leave the surge to settle (approx 119.5 secs).
STEP 5
Top up the glass by pushing the tap handle backwards until the head is just proud of
the glass. Do not let the stout overflow, and never use a spatula to level the head.
STEP 6
Hand the pint to the consumer with a steady hand. There should be no overspill.

Tourist or not, the storehouse is a pretty awesome place to see showing you how the Guinness is made, how it was stored and how it was advertised back in the day :) There’s also the Gravity bar with a 360 view of the city!

Until next time,

Over the weekend I was in London and on Monday I assisted the ever so talented Uzo Oleh in Monika Studios for ShortList Magazine. There was Dior, there was Prada and to top it off there was Nandos for lunch ;)

Day 61/365

Evening adventure around Dun Laoghaire on Thursday after work. There was ice-cream, boats, more ice-cream and more boats… there was also one fire breathing dragon and a cup of tea!

So happy Teddys has extended to the end of the pier as it’s the best place to sit, chill and enjoy the view =)

Day 59/365

Had a few afterwork/goodbye drinks yesterday as Canada is taking my dear friend Mikey. The proper ‘Last Hurrah’ was Saturday but a few casuals in the Pav is the real way to say the ol’ farewell.

Just a few atmospheric snaps as I didn’t want to spend the evening with my camera in everyones face :)

Until next time,

Day 57/365

Came across this Dog-Bear-Lion on Sunday and was in awe.

I literally stopped in my tracks when I passed this Chow Chow and hope I didn’t bother the poor owners having lunch too much. But to be fair, with a dog that adorable it has to be expected!

Tad overkill with the photos I’ll admit!

Until next time,
