3 STEPS! How to Pour a Beer with a Perfect Head - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to pour a beer from a can into a glass, very common way in Japan.
You can apply this technique to the bottled beer as well.

The key point here is "Perfect Head"!!!

Creating a very fine foam on top of the beer prevents it from oxidation and retains its flavor.

Pouring a beer is part of the tasting experience :)

3 STEPS! How to Pour a Beer with a Perfect Head

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 3min
Number of servings: 1

What You Need:
1 cold beer
1 cold beer glass of your choice

Before You Start:
Wash the glass in hot water, let it dry naturally, and cool in the fridge.
Dirty glass produces large coarse bubbles and a rapidly disappearing head. Do not use dish towel because it can leave some dust on your glass.

How to Pour:
1. Create Bubbles
Pour beer from high above the glass until the glass is half full. You will get a frothy head, so wait 30 seconds to 1 minute until the large bubbles on the surface disappear.

2. Lift Up The Head
When the beer and the head are in halves, pour beer with great care (do not break up the fine bubbles) up to eight to nine-tenths of the glass. *You can tilt the glass if you want to.

3. Finish
Wait until the bubbles are about three-tenths of the glass. Then pour beer into the center of the head, lifting up the head again.

*Fluffy head poured out over the glass looks delicious :P


We used "Suntory The Premium Malt's" because we went to their factory this summer, just for fun and got some glasses as a souvenir ;)
