Patience for a Pint: The Art and Science of the Slow Pour

“The slow pour is nothing new to beer, but a recent rise in popularity, thanks to those craft breweries that have put it center stage, has engendered a renewed interest in this well-topped pour. In American craft beer today, when a slow pour is mentioned, those who have been there will call to mind Bierstadt Lagerhaus in Denver.

The brewery’s commitment to lagers is well known and documented, and their Slow Pour Pils is popular both because of the commitment the drinker must make to waiting a few minutes between an order and the first sip and because it’s just so darn tasty. The tip, regulars will tell you, is to order the next round when the current one hits the table.” – John Holl
