But then I've never really thought their beer was worth drinking much less getting hung up on how it is poured.
She was trying to help, but you just don't scrape the little amount of foam off of a double Ipa (Avery Maharaja), maybe a wheat beer or similarly carbed beer. It was perfect the way she brought it, so I told her to leave it and she said "Eww, you like the foam", now that's funny to me.

I chewed on some leaf hops, citra I think, really enjoyed it for the first 5 minutes but it was too much after that

BBahahahaha made my day.

Don't underestimate the importance of how the beer is poured!! I have a bookmark at home from one of Pilsner Urquell's website about how to pour a proper glass of beer, including discussion of dry foam vs wet foam, and then removing the dry foam at the end of the pour - differently then in the Heinekin video, but done for the same reason. There is scientific research done on dry vs wet foam in beer, and the characteristics of each!

Note that in the Heinie video, there is still a decent head on the beer, and most of Europe (except the Brits and Irish) insist on a nice head on their beer

I know a guy that offered his siblings the same "smart pills". After they ate one, he offered them another, which they declined. He told them, "See you're smarter already!"

Good, would be a tragedy to waste a great beer on someone who wouldn't appreciate it fully.

Hate to quote my own post, but she did it tonight. I come walking into the room and she has two orange wedges sunk in my IPA. I honestly don't understand...

Warrior, Columbus, Simcoe, Zythos, Centennial. I don't think she's onto anything except my nerves!
