Tips on serving beer properly


For some people, serving properly draft beer is an art. If this is not so, you tell it to Javier Sánchez, winner of the II Estrella Galicia National Championship of Professional Beer Serving. Sanchez provides a series of tips to know how to serve properly beer on tap.

  • Experience and background. It is clear that, as in many other cases, to know how to serve beer some experience is needed. Sanchez works since 1987 in hospitality and has a long background in serving beers.
  • Several variables. To properly serve beer, you must take into account a number of factors, such as the difference between tap and bottle beers, and also the type and origin of the beer.
  • Preliminary steps. Before filling the jar or glass of beer, be sure to cool the glass. as it can avoid bad foaming.
  • Position of the glass. When we proceed to fill the glass of beer, it must be at an angle of 45 degrees and then we’ll gradually put it in vertical position. First you should keep in mind to create foam (We’ll leave this step for later).
  • The foam. It is important when drinking beer. It must be at the top and is usually obtained in the second step of beer serving. This is what clearly differentiates tap and bottle beers.
  • Draft beer. The popular “cañas” served in Spanish bars are among the most appreciated. To serve it, you must open the tap by 25%. And it is said that the best “caña” is the one that has three layers of foam.
  • Mistakes. When we see a very thick bubble in the beer, the serving has not been performed well. To correct this you have to remove the foam layer by pouring some more beer. It is quite common.

So, you see, it’s the beer is as important as how it’s served: mind it and… enjoy it!

 TAGS:Beer kegs are a the options preferred for parties and meetings in which the organizers want the job a little easier and make their guests happy. They generally contain about 30 liters of beer, and that frees them from the anguish of thinking whether it would be enough for everyone.

By placing the beer in the barrel is important to carbonate, carbon dioxide is a gas that dissolves easily in beer. That amount of gas is measured in volumes. If a liter of beer is carbonated with 2.5 volumes, means that there are 2.5 liters of CO2 in the beer.

Generally, the taste of beer lies among other factors, on being more or less carbonated, the bitterer and fragrant beers are not as carbonated as with the ones with a softer taste and aroma.

To carbonate the beer you must follow these steps: Place the siphon hose in the bottom of your barrel and thus prevent it from oxygen, then place the lid and close it. Close the bottle and breathe out CO2 + C02. Then repeat this process at least 3 times and this will it preserve your beer.

The pressure of the beer is the degree to which C02 molecules at the top of the container pressures beer. When the pressure grows the gas hits the drink and dissolves in it. The high pressure facilitates the process of carbonation and prevents the liquid out of the barrel.

To keep your beer you should leave it about 15 pounds of pressure as it cools, cooling the beer barrel allows carbonated more easily, and with the barrel cold-install your C02 system and take 25 to 30 pounds of pressure, shake for approximately 10 minutes.

It is advisable to drink the beer barrel in a period no longer than45 days to taste the best quality, and do not allow the entry of oxygen in your beer while you’re keeping it.

Beer barrels are available in different materials, namely metal for more informal or wood for a more classic style. Some have a beverage dispenser that allows you to offer your guests the option to be served their own way each of their drinks and let you relax and enjoy the evening.

To enjoy a good barrel of beer considers all these tips and be sure to take special attention in the cleaning when you use it.
