Want to learn a fun and fast way to pour a perfect glass of Guinness from a can, with a nice creamy head? This is how you do it. Make sure you have a clean 16 oz. pint glass and a clean can of Guinness. Open the can. Pop it upside down into the pint glass. Don't worry; it's not going to overflow. Once the liquid in the glass reaches the liquid in the can and the avalanche of bubbles settles, pull the can directly out of the glass, pouring the rest of the beer in. And there you have it, a gorgeous Guinness from a can. Boy that was a good one. That was really great.
