Beer Clean

A term that refers to the cleanliness of a vessel used to drink beer.

Here are some ways to tell if your glass is beer clean:

  • Hold the glass up to a light to see if there are any fingerprints, smudges, lipstick, etc.
  • Look for bubbles clinging to the inside of the glass.
  • Rinse the glass with water before pouring beer into it and look for sheeting from the water, not beading.
  • Rinse the glass with water and sprinkle the inside of the glass with salt - if the salt sticks to the surface, then the surface is clean. 

If you are served a beer in a glass that is not beer clean, send it back!
