Last night was rowdy to say the least. Where did I spend my evening? At the 2012 Atlanta Guinness Perfect Pour Con Competitors from some of the city’s best bars came out to compete, in a bracketed, single elimination style Guinness pour off. Bartenders were dropped 2 per round due to “pour fouls” like: overflowing pour, excessive bubbles, too much head, not enough, or getting taps caught in the pour. Two expert judges scrutinized each pint, eliminating those little screw ups that keep that Guinness pint from looking its best. Hi five to everyone moving slow after a night of Guinness & car bombs.
Competitors included: Tilted Kilt, Pub 71, Donovan’s, Ri Ra, Taco Mac, The Fred Bar, Cheeky, Limerick Junction, Olde Town Tavern, Meehan’s, Old Blind Dog, Fado, Wild Wing, Padriac’s, The Nook, Stout, Buckhead Saloon, Tap, & more… The 2012 winner? Ri Ra! Below are pics from the event.
