It may have happened to you on a number of occasions; you come back home after a long day at work and want to spend some quality time drinking your favourite beer. You start the pour from the bottle into your glass, but even the top selling beer in India is not forming any kind of foam on the top of the beer. Strange, right? Why is there no head on the beer?

Chances are that the reason behind getting no foam on top of the beer is that the glass you used was not completely clean. Or ‘beer clean’. What does this mean? Let’s take a look.

What is a ‘Beer Clean’ Glass?

One of the most striking and distinct features of beer is how it forms that familiar head of foam on top of it. This head preserves the freshness of your beer while also keeping the carbonation inside. But even the tiniest amount of oil, sugar, or soap can cause head retention problems with your beer.

These residual impurities create new sites for nucleation in the beer, thus taking the efficacy out of the beer’s foam head. These new nucleation sites do not let the beer’s head form.

How To Keep Your Glass ‘Beer Clean’?

  • Have a Glass dedicated for beer and never use it for anything, not even for soft drinks. Oils and sugar in other drinks will remain behind in the glass and end up ruining your experience.
  • Use a good detergent that is meant for glassware. These special detergents work in a manner that they tend to leave no residue on the surface. Regular soap may leave some soap behind that may be difficult to clean, which is a special glassware detergent is the best way to clean your glass.
  • Rinse thoroughly after cleaning them with the detergent.
  • This thing you can learn from bars around the world; rinse your glass again before using it to remove any dirt that may have collected on the glass in the time it was not being used. You can even use a small amount of your beer to clean the glass thoroughly if you wish to.

Keeping your glass ‘beer clean’ before you use it is one of the most essential parts of the drinking experience. Don’t let a dirty glass mess up your drinking experience of one of the top 10 beer brands in India. Clean them thoroughly and enjoy the best experience of your life with your favourite beer.
