What better way to celebrate Beer Day Britain on 15 June than by brewing and drinking the perfect pint?
To celebrate the national drink, many brewers will brew beer out of their homes or breweries for their friends and family to enjoy. To brew the perfect beer, it’s important it is not too hot or too cold.
When a beer is served too cold, the flavours of the beer can get masked from the chill of the beverage. If served too warm, it becomes flat-tasting from the decrease in the carbonation.
According to the Homebrewers Association, beers should be served between 3°C – 12°C/38°F – 55°F. Although depending on the type of beer, some are best served at warmer temperatures than others.
|⁰C Temp||⁰F Temp||Beer Type|
|4°||38°||Pale Lagers, Pilsners|
|5°||40°||Cream & Blonde Ales, Nitro Stouts, Belgian Pale Ales, Abbey Tripels|
|7°||45°||Wheat Beers, Lambics, Dark Lagers|
|10°||50°||British Style Barley Wine Ale|
|12°||53°||Strong Lagers, Real & Cask Ales, Belgian Dubbels|
