POURING DRAUGHT BEER
Proper serving of draught beer creates a “controlled” release of carbonation that develops a better tasting beer and a complete sensory experience. The evolution of CO2 gas during pouring builds the head and releases desirable flavors and aromas.
Hold the glass at a 45-degree angle about two inches below the spout so that beer will initially flow down the side of the glass [NOTE: To prevent transfer of bacteria, in no instance should a faucet nozzle touch the inside of the glass].
1. Grip tap handle at its base, open the faucet quickly and completely so beer flows freely.
2. As the glass fills, gradually tilt it upright so that you finish pouring straight down the middle of the glass to build a one inch collar of foam.
3. Close faucet quickly to avoid wasteful overflow.
