There’s nothing like the first sip of cold, crisp beer after a long day of work. And while the pouring style may not be a priority at that point in the day, it’s more important than you might think!  Pouring a glass of beer “correctly” will allow you to enjoy it at its full potential and pouring style is especially beneficial for artisanally produced beers. So even when enjoying a brewski at home, follow our #SundaysProTip on how to pour the perfect glass of beer.


How to pour a glass of beer from a bottle or can:

  1. Hold a clean glass at a 45-degree angle and start to pour your beer
  2. Continue pouring until halfway up the glass
  3. At the halfway point, tilt the glass upright as you continue to pour
  4. Watch the foam – if you pour too quickly, you’ll have too much head; pour too slowly and you’ll have no head
  5. The perfect head depends on the particular beer you’re pouring (as well as your country’s beer culture), but as a rule of thumb, 0.5-1.5 inch is ideal
  6. Serve right away and enjoy
