Beer FAQ

What temperature should I store my beer?

Your keg should be kept at a cool 34-38 degrees Fahrenheit.

When can I expect to see the new seasonal beers?

It’s entirely up to the brewery as to when seasonal brews are produced and made available for sale. Typically the beer calendar breaks down into the four different seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer. Also, there are certain beer categories that fall within these seasons such as- Oktoberfest, Holiday brews, and Limited Release brews.

Is there anything I should know before serving beer?

Yes! In order for your patrons to have the best experience possible you need to make sure your glassware is in proper condition. This process is known as “Beer Clean Glass”, which forms a proper head and creates residual lacing as the beer is consumed. Before use, beer glassware should be kept either chilled or slightly below room temperature. Using a dishwasher or serving beer fresh out of a wash are not recommended.

Proper Temperature for Beer Storage

Keep draught beer cold so it pours easily, profitably and at peak freshness. The number one factor affecting how draught beer pours is temperature. At retail, even a few degrees increase above the ideal maximum of 38°F can create pouring problems, especially excessive foaming.
