How To Pour A Beer (extended discussion for beer nerds)


This video is specifically intended for beer enthusiasts and not Joe and Jane Six Pack. This isn't just a tutorial on how to pour beer, it's an experiment of sorts as we compare four different pour methods of the same beer in the same glass. Two of these methods are in direct contradiction with each other which is quite ironic considering those methods are advocated by two of the biggest beer authors - Randy Mosher and Michael Jackson (R.I.P.).

So which IS the "best" or "correct" way to pour a beer? Does it vary by style? Can you actually taste a difference? What method do you use? Don't just leave a comment, please post a video response on what you think is the best method to pour a beer.
