Pouring a Nitro

Some may question the importance of pouring a nitro but it is paramount to drinking one :D

A trained bartender will pour the nitro correctly, giving the most beautiful tight, thick, white head. This guide is for those who want to pour a perfect nitro in the comfort of their own home.


Pour contents straight into the glass. Do not tip the glass.

Observe the beauty. The head will settle shortly.


Watch this short video for a demonstration.

Drinking a Nitro

Take a huge whiff.

If that does not excite you then proceed to the ER, there may be something wrong with you :)


Continue with that first sip that should seal the deal if the smell didn’t completely do it for you ;)

It’s not called a Milk Stout for nothing, wipe upper lip after drinking or understand people are staring at your milk mustache.

Enjoy :) This dark beauty goes down smoothly.

    • Thank you! I am tempted too but I do think it takes some talent to do a Nitro well…I have had many that don’t have enough carbonation and I am not a fan of “flat” beer…Do you have a favorite Nitro I should try? :)

Comments make me :D
