Beer Sommelier Marc Stroobandt Shows How to Get a Foamy Head

Simple Tip: Hold a Beer Glass Straight For a Foamy Beer Head

At the Tales and Ales lunch in Aspen, Stella Artois master beer sommelier Marc Stroobandt led the beer tasting. I remembered the Belgian brew expert from a lamb luncheon he'd hosted the year before, where he championed a head on beer: "Don't be afraid of foam on your beer. If you're short on the foam, then you'll be short on some flavor."

This year, Stroobandt demonstrated the perfect pour. He began by holding the glass entirely vertically, rather than tipping it as so many of us do, to prevent too many suds from entering the glass. At the very end, he leaned the pilsner glass ever so slightly to fill it to the very top. Did you know you're supposed to preserve the foam on your brew?
