Now moost people think that pouring beer from a bottle into a glass is simple. Well it is...but there is actually an art to it.
Watch as Oliver Helbig, Asia Pacific Representative for Erdinger Weissbier, demonstrates the art of pouring the perfect Erdinger beer.
1) Rinse the glass with iced water to remove any residues/impurities.2) Hold the glass slightly at a slant.
3) Slowly pour in the beer down the side of the glass until about 1 inch of beer remains in the bottle.
4) Gently swirl the bottle to mix the remaining beer with the yeast at the bottom.
5) Pour remaining beer into glass.
6) Enjoy. :)
It is a simple but important tip to get the yeast out of the bottle and into the glass for the best flavour and enjoyment. Erdinger uses the top fermentation process and fresh yeast is added to each bottle before the beer is matured for 3-4 weeks in their controlled warehouse.
In accordance to the Purity Law, Erdinger is made using hops, malt, yeast and water (drawn from their own deep springs!).
Then it was time for moo to try my hoof at pouring.
Here's my first attempt! Not too bad I suppose. I love the Erdinger Dunkel for its creamy, rich flavour. Yums.
I also got a chance to pull an Erdinger Weissbier from the tap. They even had a chart showing the various markings. Woe to whoever obtains a "bad" score! Moohaha.
Some yummy morsels to go with the beers. :D
The event was hosted at Switch- a new live music venue by the Timbre group featuring both English and Mandarin tunes.
