How To Properly Pour Beer
How to properly pour beer? Properly pouring beer means pouring it without making a mess or having too much head, or foam, at the top of the glass. You can use this technique for pouring beer from a tap or from a bottle. It will keep the beer from loosing its bubbles and from getting flat.
If you want to pour a beer properly, you will need:
- A bottle of beer or
- Beer on tap
- Chilled glasses
- Keep the beer glasses you want to use for your beer in the freezer. When you are ready to pour some beer, remove a glass from the freezer.
- Make sure bottled beer is chilled in the refrigerator. Pop open the lid with a bottle opener, or if it is a twist off, twist off the lid.
- Tilt the glass at an angle and put the lip of the beer bottle at the edge of the glass.
- Slowly, very slowly pour the beer into the glass. Make sure the beer slides down the side of the glass from the top of the glass all the way to the bottom. By having the beer ride the side of the glass, you will prevent head, or foam, from building up the way it would if you were to simply pour the beer into the glass.
- Tilt the glass up as you reach the end of the bottle. You should have a full glass with a small amount of head and no overspills.
- Repeat these steps for beer on tap, except keep the glass tilted at an angle at the mouth of the tap you are pouring the beer from.
