I read Guy Kawasaki’s blog because, business & technology wise, I usually learn something. You can often find posts inspired by him on my Write Technology blog.
I did not expect to learn something from Guy Kawasaki about Guinness.
Apparently, back in February, Guy spent some time in Ireland and visited the Guinness brewery. From his photos and descriptions, it reminds me a lot of your standard bourbon distillery tour here in Kentucky – educational but great fun. The difference is that at the end, you get to learn how to pour a perfect pint of Guinness.
In Guy Kawasaki’s case, he got to learn from Fergal Murray, Guinness Brewmaster. Nice.
Anyone who has ever seen me pour a beer, or even a Coca-cola for that
matter, knows that I pour lousy. Well, now there is a video that
teaches you how to pour a perfect pint of Guinness. But before we get
to that, I want to introduce you to the Surger.
According to Gizmodo, it works like this:
The Guinness Surger is a electrical device with a small metal plate on it; you pour a little water onto the plate, put a pint of the special Guinness Draught Surger Beer in place and then turn the power on, sending ultrasonic pulses up through the beer to create the creamy head we all know and love.
I don’t think it’s available here yet, but I’d love to have this gadget when it is.
Now for that video:
