Ever since our keg-drinking college days, we’ve been taught that the foam that appears when pouring a beer is bad. But what if you found out that that beer foam is actually what keeps your stomach feeling great when you’re deep into a night of imbibing in your favorite brews?
Business Insider released a video this weekend demonstrating how pouring a beer the wrong way can give you a stomach ache. Master Cicerone Max Bakker begins by letting us know that we should always be drinking beer out of a glass, rather than from the bottle or can. With that precious pour, when done correctly, you release some of the CO2 stored in the beer, rather than having it release in your stomach. It also eliminates the bloat that occurs when we’re drinking beer.
Oh, it also keeps your beer tasting the way it should, too. Better run and tell your local bartender.
