GUINNESS Malaysia’s search for the perfectly-poured pint reaches its exciting conclusion; four winning bartenders and two lucky consumers received an all-expenses paid trip to visit the home of GUINNESS, Dublin.
21 June 2018, Kuala Lumpur – Excitement was at its peak as GUINNESS, Malaysia’s favourite stout, announced the winners of its Perfect Pour contest, today. Over the past month, trainers from the HEINEKEN Malaysia Star Academy have travelled the length and breadth of the country, teaching hundreds of bartenders the methods to pouring a great pint of GUINNESS.
GUINNESS Malaysia, in conjunction with The HEINEKEN Malaysia Star Academy, served bars across the country on the fully equipped GUINNESS bar-in-a-bus. The mechanics and angles behind the “perfect pour”, a unique two-part pour method, were demonstrated to bartenders and fans. The glass is first filled up to three-quarters full, after which the ‘surge’ is allowed to settle before being topped up. This method ensures delivery of the perfectly served Guinness to consumers no matter where they are in Malaysia with its velvety, creamy taste and its “frothy” head.
GUINNESS consumers across the region got to experience the fully equipped bar-in-a-bus and learned how to execute the “perfect pour”. This year, fans got involved in the search as they rated bartenders on a unique coaster provided at participating locations. Two lucky consumers were rewarded for their parts in the process and will join the four winners on this money-can’t-buy tour to the home of Guinness in Dublin, Ireland.
