Tasting beer can be a both very simple and quite complicated task, we hope you can combine the best of two worlds when enjoying a beer from SPBC. However, a few things are generally considered more or less vital:
- First of all many of the South Plain beers aren’t “plain” but rather bold in both flavor and alcohol strength, enjoy responsibly, take your time and share it with friends!
- Try to use proper, clean glassware as it allows the beer to breath and expose it’s aromatic qualities.
- South Plains beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized, pour carefully to leave the sediment in the bottom of the bottle.
- Check the beer-section for recommended serving temperatures!
- If you like hops, drink South Plains beer fresh!
- Carbonation on craft beer can change. Often when the beer is freshly bottled, the carbonation is light. As it ages, it can increase. A high volume alcohol beer, like 10% can become very carbonated after a year in a bottle. The reason is because our beers are unpasteurized and even after fermentation is complete, the live yeast culture will change and find more sugars, producing CO2. A solution could be to pasteurize the beer, like the mass produced breweries do, but that would mean less flavor.
