Use mugs with handles: the hand transfers heat to the glass and heats the drink faster. Polystyrene containers also help as they avoid contact with the hand and help maintain temperature.

⚠️ Extreme temperatures are a big problem: VERY cold beer hides many of its aromas and flavors. Cold temperatures slow the evolution of aromatic compounds, and by inhibiting the release of these compounds, their apparent aromas and flavors change radically, sometimes to the point that the beer can appear bland.

General Rules:

  • All beers should be served between 3.5 and 13°C;
  • Lagers (example Pilsner) are served colder than ales (example IPA);
  • Higher-proof beers are served less cold than lower-proof beers;
  • Darker beers are served less cold than lighter beers;
  • industrial lagers are served very cold;
  • the beer can be served a few degrees below the indicated temperature since the glass of the glass and the hand can add a few degrees more;

*Remember, these general suggestions are so that you have an idea of ​​how to chill a craft beer, in the end, as we explained, each style of beer follows a recommendation from serving temperature (according to its production and tradition), so there is no single perfect temperature for beers in general.
