[ADV] Heineken Star Serve with Keith Nair

Hello there party people!
I'm gonna post a super overdue post cuz I totally totally lost track of time because my semester ended and now i'm just waiting for my exams to come, cross fingers that I'll do good, cuz I've been neglecting and sacrificing my blog for my exams, I really don't know how can I cope with blogs and studies and work! DEFINITELY NOT A LAZY PERSON CAN DO. 

Anyways I gotta stop the rant. Like literally. 

So party people, have you guys encounter tasteless beer or freaking hard-to-drink kind of beer and sometimes you find it really easy to drink but you've been drinking the same brand of beer an you can't find any solid reason why! *mind-fucked* I know. Do you know that your beer needs protection, and your beer has to be skimmed before serve? If one day, you're at a bar, I dare you to demand a skimmed beer. Why? I'm here to tell you why, and you'll definitely thank me later. 

So few weeks ago, I went to a workshop with Heineken and some of the party-bloggers -Heineken Star Serve with Keith Nair. What is Heineken Star Serve?

Well, Heineken Star Serve is a programme that aims to improve the quality of beers! Also to educate to drinkers and the public that they can demand a perfect beer. It's win-win situation, where the public enjoys their perfect served beers and bars nationwide maintain their quality serve.

Keith Nair, is one of the draught masters in Malaysia. He was there to teach us the right Heineken Pouring Ritual.
Although these five simple steps of Heineken Pouring Ritual seems like it's a very easy thing to, but the art of mastering it could take a long time to pour  a perfect pint of beer. The perfect pint of a beer is when the line between the foam and the beer touches the shoulder of the "star". That is definitely a perfect pint! Taste of unskimmed and skimmed beer are totally different. I had unskimmed beer and boy it taste horrible, when Keith skimmed a beer for me, it taste magic, as in smooth like really smooth~

So we had our workshop on G.A.B, Guinness Anchor Berhard's lounge. It was quite chilly and everybody just sit and had some food to munch and chit chat along the way, until we were challenged to do a pour-off challenge. Honestly, I think I really sucked at pouring a perfect pint because I only did one lucky perfect pint after all practices before the actual challenge actually starts.

Alyssa and yours truly.

This was in the actual pour-off challenge. I TOTALLY SUCKED. It was a glass of foam and everybody calls in milkshake lol. Luckily Keith was nice enough he gave me a 2nd chance to do a perfect pint but naaaaaaaaah It was not good but it was alright. Not strong enough to battle with the strong contestants.


Guess what's this? Yes, a bus. If i'm not mistaken it's a place to train the bartender to pour a perfect pint of beer while the bus in on the move. Like seriously, if anyone can do this well. DAMN SUCH A PRO. I will never ever look down at bartenders anymore.

Here are the lucky/talented winners during the pour-off challenge.

So I guess that's all for today!!!

If your bartender didn't give you a perfect pint or they didn't skim before serving it, demand for a second perfect glass. Afterall, you're a customer and customer is always right :P don't waste your money on bad-served beer!!

Till then.
