Lord, where do I start? The anemic bit of foam he winds up with atop the glass of Sam Adams or the flavour-boosting cocktail napkin swirl? Or maybe the way he handles every glass by the rim? Or the brutal Guinness pour, perhaps?

I only hope that this dude’s bartending days are long behind him.

  1. Wow. That’s unreal. Some of the other videos in that series are just as bad. The one on pouring draught is priceless.
    Trouble is that there are only a few bar owners who want to invest in the training of their staff to understand and appreciate beer. I always get the “What if I train them and they leave?” to which I answer, “What if you don’t and they stay.”
