Served correctly, beer is a delight. *** Si se sirve correctamente, la cerveza es un manjar. (Radovan/Unsplash)
Beer is, in and of itself, an exquisite experience. From the second a tap opens and out gushes a cold and refreshing beverage to the moment a hiccup leaves the mouth of a satisfied patron, beer delights anyone. It is a work of art.
However, the key to a successful beer experience is in the serving of the beverage.
One of the main indicators of a poorly served beer is when the bartender rids the glass of foam by overflowing it. On the other hand, a correct serving happens when the glass is placed vertically so that the tap touches the bottom of it. Then, when the drink flows forwards, it releases the excess CO2, which allows the foam to settle in the glass.
Finally, the bartenders must clean the tap’s pipes after changing every single barrel. Otherwise, foam accumulates inside them and produces yeast.
