A barman at Dublin's Ryan's Pub is captured balancing pints of Guinness atop each other in this phonecam series. Three is no problem. Four is a little wet.

Lots of other cool Guiness stuff here.

Why'd you have to go and show me that ollllo? You know that next time I'm at the bar I"m going to have to waste \$30+ trying to balance Guinness pints.

Practice with something less expensive and less tastey... like bud, and think about it, when you spill the bud it's not like anyone is missing out.

It's all physics. You can stack three because the moment of the other two don't overwhelm the moment of the beer on the bottom. That is of course if your point of axis is the bottom lip of the glass. When you put the forth on you should probably put it going towards the originating two. That wouldn't add to the moments already in place but you might get a negative moment on the second glass and spill. I don't know I'm pretty drunk right now.

I don't think that would work - the third one would tip into the second one because the third one wouldn't have any support under it on that side of the glass. I think a spiral might work for more than 3.
