Temperature Of Beer
I wish to make a formal complaint about the temperature of the draught beer being served at the club.
I understand from John, that we have had a new chiller installed in the cellar, and it is automatic and cannot be regulated.
To serve draught bitter at 6-8 deg C is contrary to all Brewing industry guidelines.
To serve at this temperature removes all the flavour and taste of the beer.
(Thats probably why they serve lager at that temperature)
That temperature also destroys the “head retension” and so the beer is FLAT from start to finish.
The correct temperature should be between 12 & 14 C.
I don’t believe that the thermostat is pre-set and cannot be adjusted, and I recommend that the installer is asked to adjust it.
Several members who drink bitter that I have spoken to agree that the beer is too cold.
