Tips for pouring the perfect draught
Beer is only as good as the way it was poured, but fear not! All of the bartenders at The Cock & Tail Café are amazing draught masters who only service the coldest beer for you drinking enjoyment #CockTails
And if all else fails, here are some tips for pouring the perfect draught.
- Use a clean glass. A dirty glass, containing oils, dirt or residuals from a previous beer may inhibit head creation and flavours.
- Hold your glass at a 45° angle. Pour the beer, targeting the middle of the slope of the glass. Don’t be afraid to pour hard or add some air between the bottle and glass.
- At the half-way point bring the glass at a 90° angle and continue to pour in the middle of the glass. This will induce the perfect foam head. And remember, having a head on a beer is a good thing. It releases the beer’s aromatics and adds to the overall presentation. You may also want to gradually add distance between the bottle and glass as you pour, to also inspire a good head. An ideal head should be 3.8cm
