The beer is the oldest and most likely drink in the world ordered every time when you are out with your friends at pubs. There are a surprising number of us who still don’t know how to have it in a proper way. There is actually an art behind having beer properly.

So, here are some of the mistakes you have probably been making with your pint. Now it’s time to stop!

  1. Frosting your glass
    This is the biggest myth in drinking beer mainly seen everywhere, the joy of a frosted beer glass. It basically never make your drinking experience any better. In fact, it will kill its carbonation and aromas. Use the glass at room experience.

  1. Drinking beer ice cold
    Drinking beer ice cold never gives you maximum taste, some of the beers are meant to be served just above room temperature so it’s recommended to leave them in the fridge for just 10minutes before having it.

  1. Leaving it in sunlight
    Unknown fact but true. Beer is never supposed to be in sunlight before it’s opened. Don’t believe this? Try to get a bottle of beer from sun exposed shelf from hot shop and then open and smell it. You will feel that it’s been skunked. Always store beer in cool and dry place to keep its taste and flavor right.

  1. Keeping it too long
    The taste of the beer always gets worse as it gets old. This is because some of the beers age quickly and should be consumed when bought. 

  1. Overthinking it
    Being a foodie is same as being a beer lover. Never get technical to mates about varieties. Most of you might like Guinness, or some may like Harp Lager depending upon their taste. Just enjoy.
