Why does beer overflow when you hit the top?
The air bubbles collapse due to the train of expansion-compression waves, forming clouds of much smaller daughter bubbles. ... This turns the liquid to foam and results in buoyant clusters of expanding air bubbles that rise to the surface—and swiftly make their way to the mouth of the beer bottle.
How do I make my beer cold in 5 minutes?
Take a wet paper towel or two and wrap it around your beer before sticking it in the freezer. Make sure the paper towels are soaked but not dripping. When you put a damp paper towel inside a dry, cold environment like the freezer, the water will both rapidly evaporate and cool.

The head is formed by the bubbles of carbon dioxide in the beer rising to the surface and being held together with surface tension. Fermentation produces natural carbon dioxide, but many beermakers also add is to its products specifically to produce a good head.
What causes the foam in beer?
Beerhead (also head or collar), is the frothy foam on top of beer which is produced by bubbles of gas, predominantly carbon dioxide, rising to the surface.

How much foam should beer have?
Remember, having a head on a beer is a good thing. It releases the beer's aromatics and adds to the overall presentation. You may also want to gradually add distance between the bottle and glass as you pour, to also inspire a good head. An ideal head should be 1" to 1-1/2".
Why is beer poured sideways?
The foam is due to all of the carbon dioxide in the beer bottle or can. ... As you waterfall the beer, tilting the glass helps you avoid trapped air pockets called nucleation sites that would help the rest of the carbon dioxide escape
Should you pour a beer with foam?
Believe it or not, some say to pour the beer directly into the center of the glass, but pace your pour in time with the foam formulation. Don't pour super quickly so that your beer is all foam. Rather, pour patiently, pausing and waiting for a certain amount of bubbles to settle before tipping in more beer.
