BEER TIP: What is the proper way to pour a beer?

Getting a good head on a beer is important. The aromatic qualities of beer are carried out of the glass on the foam. You should aim for about two-fingers of foam on top of the beer. So how do you achieve the perfect pour?

From a bottle: Pour slowly down the middle of the glass.

From a tap: Hold the glass at a 45° angle about one inch below the faucet. Open the tap fully and gradually straighten the glass as the beer fills. Don’t stick the faucet into the beer.
