Be your own barman and pour beer like a pro

Be your own barman and pour beer like a pro

Today (August 4) is International Beer Day and what better way to mark the occasion than by enjoying a glass of your favourite beer.

When it comes to pouring beer into a glass, it’s not simply a case of opening the bottle (or can) and carelessly emptying the contents into the first available glass. Believe it or not, there is an art to pouring beer correctly. Here are some tips to help you master the technique:

1 – Select your personal favourite beer glass.

2 – Tilt the glass at a 45 degree angle, keeping the edge of the bottom of the glass resting on a flat surface.

3 – Hold the beer a few inches above the rim of the glass, aiming to pour the contents halfway up the inside of the glass.

4 – Start to pour in a steady motion, letting the beer flow smoothly down the side of the glass.

5 – When it is halfway full, slowly start to level the glass as you continue to pour.

6 – When finished, wait a few seconds for the head to settle.

7 – Sit back, relax and enjoy.
