Watch Jimmy Kimmel Learn How to Pour the Perfect Pint of Guinness

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Jimmy Kimmel, host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! heretofore did not know how to pour a pint of Guinness, arguably Ireland's favorite beer and one of the most famous beers in the world. In a recent clip, Kimmel dressed his sidekick Guillermo in a green, leprechaun suit and the two bros went to talk to Guinness Brewery Ambassador Eoghain Clavin just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Neither Kimmel nor Guillermo are known as being particularly patient, but Clavin says, "Guinness is all about patience." Kimmel and Guillermo really just want to drink, but the Guinness spokesperson encourages them to practice. The two novices then take turns trying their hand at pouring a pint of Guinness. Kimmel thinks his pour is better than Clavin's. Maybe he's done this before after all? Meanwhile, Guillermo explains that he's not dressed as a leprechaun, he's dressed as a "Mexicaun." Watch the full clip to see how to hold a pint glass while pouring a draft Guinness, and how to say cheers in Irish. And consider these seven tips for pouring a perfect pint at home.
