Winning a crate of Heineken and possibly a trip to Amsterdam!
Heineken has always been a great host for having parties such as Heineken Thirst, Green Room, Sensation and more. Instead of all these parties, do you even know how to serve a perfect pint of Heineken?
Up until today, I didn't know that there were 5 steps in creating a perfect Heineken Pint
The steps are:
1) Rinse & prepare a clean glass
2) Pour the beer at a 45 degree angle, straighten when 3/4 full and fill the glass till full
3) Skim the top of the foam at a 45 degree angle
4) Ensure the bottom of the foam lies on top of the Heineken Star's "Shoulders"
5) Serve the beer with the Heineken Logo facing the customer
A bunch of us was invited to the GAB factory where Heineken is produced. We were given a chance to attend a Heineken workshop with Heineken Draught Master, Keith Nair. Keith showed us the proper techniques to pour our Heineken, and also told us why it is important to follow this Heineken Pouring Ritual All the steps are needed to ensure that the quality of your beer is at its best and it'll be enjoyable for the customer
