Pub goers debate what the right way is to do the Guinness Challenge
| Last updated
Pub goers can't agree on the right way to do the Guinness Challenge where you drink your pint you reckon the line between the Guinness and the head has gone down to the right spot.
People can agree you're supposed to pick up your pint of Guinness and keep drinking in one go until you think you've reached the right spot with no pauses or tilts to check your progress.
What they can't agree on is where the right spot is.
When it comes to this crucial debate most people split into two camps over the right way to do the Guinness Challenge.
Some people are 'split the G' die hards, meaning they reckon a successful Guinness Challenge is one where you get the line between stout and head in the middle of the 'G' in Guinness.
If you're going that way then you have to be extra precise, getting your pint down to the halfway point in the 'G' so it artistically bisects the letters on the side of your pint glass.
The 'split the G' crowd faces stiff competition from the people who reckon the right way to pull off the Guinness Challenge is to drink until your line is between the top of the G and the bottom of the harp.
It's another fine line to tread but they think it's the right way to do the challenge, and given the lack of room to manoeuvre it's not much easier than perfectly splitting the G.
People just can't agree on the right way to do it, but until this grand debate is settled one way or another the pubs will continue to be filled with arguments.
Maybe it's time for a new Guinness Challenge, one inspired by that lad who stuck an empty pint glass in his mouth and managed to fill it to the brim with Guinness perfectly without spilling a drop.
It'd be like a reverse Guinness Challenge, one where you've got to fill the glass to a certain point with godlike precision.
Then again, it doesn't really answer the question of whether to stop between the harp and the G, or if you should be trying to split the G.
If you want to get your practice in then you can get a Guinness tap installed in your own home and start pulling your own pints to try out.
