Have You Been The Victim Of These Four Sins of Beer Service?

- Bubbles stuck on glass in liquid beer indicate the presence of dried on beer or other soil.
- Really bad if you see lines, patches or sections of bubbles on the glass
- Just as bad as lipstick or lip marks on the rim
Cause: gunk on inside of glass creates a “nucleation” point—a gathering place for CO2 bubbles.
Bottom line: Bubbles do not stick to CLEAN glass.
2. Undercarbonated beer:
- Pours with no foaming in the glass
- Micro-thin head
- Very little “prickle” on the tongue
Cause: low CO2 pressure on keg, improper gas mix (nitrogen/carbon dioxide)
Bottom line: Beer that lacks adequate carbonation doesn’t taste right.
