Guinness pint perfectionists will visit 50,000 venues across the country ahead of pubs reopening next week.

Teams will be sent to pubs and bars to make sure they are ready to offer the ‘perfect pour’ to thirsty punters.

More than 50 quality control experts will clean thousands of lines and check boozers can offer a clean and safe environment.

The firm says it will ensure Guinness fans have the freshest pint of the black stuff possible.

Bosses added they want to make it worth waiting the extra 119.5 seconds it takes to pour the perfect pint of stout, at optimum 6°C.

The company says it is also delivering 49 fresh tankers from its home, St James Gate in Dublin, Ireland, to be distributed at watering holes throughout Britain.

Beer gardens will finally reopen on Monday, April 12 as England’s lockdown eases as coronavirus cases continue to fall.

But pubs will not be able to reopen inside until May 17 at the earliest.

Before the pandemic, one in every 10 pints served in London was a pint of Guinness.

Neil Shah, head of Guinness GB, said: "Our teams have been working round the clock, undertaking a series of rigorous checks with the utmost care and attention so that when people all over GB have their first sip of a fresh pint, it’s the best it can be – as the iconic Guinness phrase goes, 'good things come to those who wait'.

"The past year has been tough for the hospitality industry, so we want to do all that we can to make sure that their opening week is as successful as it can be.

"It goes without saying that we’re pleased to have the hospitality industry opening back up at last."

Guinness says it has provided £30million of funding to 25,000 pubs and bars across the UK to support them over the last 12 months.

Some pubs plan to open their doors from midnight on April 12 to celebrate finally being allowed to welcome back customers.

Only those with a 24-hour licence and outside space will be able to take advantage of such a move.

But under new regulations, every pub-goer must either check in with the NHS Covid app or provide their contact details.

When pubs first opened after the first lockdown last year, only one member of a group needed to provide contact details to check in.
