Every year we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we see decorated businesses with various symbols and figures all relevant to the event. Elfs with pots foul with gold sitting at the end of rainbows and clovers fill the place. The menus, staff’s and customer’s dress code are relevant to the days. This Irish celebration has come for good in Greece.
All the supportive moves, from events to advertisement material, aren’t a mystery. Mystery is the 4 leaf clover that is designed, specially these days on the beer foam. How is this happening? You would probably have heard about the designs on the milk that baristi are doing on a cappuccino, the famous latte art. The “artists”, draw different designs on milk, which requires specific techniques and a lot of practice. Here is the equality, same way goes with beer.
As you watch the video (you don’t need sound, you won’t hear anything apart of the annoying noise of the place), that we found in the internet, from an English pub, you could after some time of practice do the same thing at your bar.
After we serve the Stout in two steps, we leave some space in the glass; we don’t serve it up to the edge, as we normally do, so we would have some space to create the design. With little flow and without stops we begin from the center and we draw the first leaf, continuously the second and then the rest. We return to the middle and towards the outside we draw its sprig.
A very simple process that requires a steady hand as well as practice, as we mentioned above. This is a picture that offers a subject of conversation in each group of customers, who will see it.
