How To Pour a Fort Point Nitro

Perfect creamy foam straight from the can

Chill the can to around 36 degrees fahrenheit, the colder the better

Step 1: slowly rock the can back and forth five or six times using a steady hand motion.

Step 2: pop that can open! Expect to hear a louder than usual snap as all that gas escapes.

Step 3: Now you're ready to pour at a straight vertical angle! When pouring, try your best to pour at 180 degrees, directly down the center of a pint glass

Results! Tiny bubbles should be actively cascading downwards through the beer, forming a nice creamy beige head. Time to enjoy, cheers!
