There's two nerdy schools of thought on the matter. Personally, I get a bit excited when it overflows. Discuss your method in the comments.

  • I’ve never looked cooler than when I tilt my glass for a perfect pour

    • I'd argue there's nothing cooler than having the froth overflow around you, while you look on unperturbed. Steve McQueen was no doubt a straight-pourer.

  • I tilt! I have a beer tap installed at home and tilt whilst pouring from that or the bottle.

  • Rinse glass, Tilted, 45’ angle, dont touch tap or bottle, have 1/4” of foam on top - my directions from the craft brewery i am currently furloughed from...only worked 6 weeks after they first opened, really looking forward to going back! I miss pouring beers!

    • And the world misses having beers poured for them. You'll be back at it before long, with gusto.

      Thanks for that expert perspective!

  • I don’t tilt my glass or pour slowly zero patience for that nonsense

    • My position also. I have friends who insist on it for Coke, to the point where all conversation must stop while they carefully trickle it down the side of their glass.

    • Seriously people need to lighten up.

  • What I do is I make sure I get maximum head. But not tilting and then let the head settle down. Because we don’t get fresh beer and everything is bottled and shipped it’s better to let the head out so that the beer can breathe ( could be utter nonsense ) but that is my logic

    • See, when people start talking about beers breathing, I glaze over only to wake up with the realisation I haven't got the beer yet.
