If you’re the type that likes to drink beer out of glass rather than a bottle or a can, chances are you’ve been pouring it the wrong way. It turns out that careful approach to slowly pouring down the side of tilted glass to avoid foam is all wrong.
Via Business Insider, a “beer sommelier” showcased the correct way to pour. You start with a tilted glass, but pour with vigor and then dump until the glass is full and features a thick layer of head. Bloating and stomach pain can be caused by ingesting food after after drinking a beer that hasn’t released the appropriate amount of carbon dioxide.
