The true secret to a bona fide proper pint lies in the foam. Just look to your right ... Doesn't that baby look delicious? And why? Because of the thick and creamy head.
Meanwhile, like so many nuanced activities (ping-pong, calligraphy, masturbation), the proper pour is a matter of delicate wrist action. First, aim diagonally into the cup, right behind the insignia. Once the glass is half full, allow the rest of your brew to flow directly down the middle.
Local punk rock heathens Destroyio Records are planning a tribute concert at Churchill's Pub in honor of the United Kingdom's quintessential beer. So you might even get a chance to learn how to properly spray-spit the proper pint into the air, soaking the entire circle pit.
We believe punk is a distinctly American phenomenon. But the myriad contributions of the Brits cannot be ignored. So after you slug back your P.P., let it coat your esophagus and stomach and then slowly back up until your nostrils are oozing Guinness.
Be sure to let loose a mighty belch, hock a loogie onstage, and dive into the audience screaming, "God save the Queen!"
Destroyio Records Celebrates the Proper Pint with F, Enough!, No Peace At All, The 707s, Riot Agents, Dead Etiquette, and DJ Skidmark. Saturday, November 12. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Little Haiti. The show starts at 9 p.m. and cover costs $5. Call or visit .
