Pouring and serving
Bottom-fermentation beers and top-fermentation smooth drinking beers which are
served cold (Spéciale Belge, white beer, Old Brown, Flanders Red-Brown) are dis-
pensed in cold glasses. Other top-fermentation beers and spontaneous-fermentation
beers are best served at 6-8°C and dispensed in dry or chilled glasses, according to
brewery recommendations.
Preparing the glasses
STEP 1:
Clean the glassware in a detergent
solution (Becharein) using brushes.
STEP 2:
Rinse off in a second sink with clean
water. Fully submerge each glass
with the opening facing up, so that
the glass fills with water. Repeat two
to three times.
STEP 3:
Inspect the glasses immediately af-
ter rinsing. Hold up the glass toward
the light, with the opening facing
down. Repeat steps 1 and 2 if the
water film opens around any remain-
ing greasy spots.
STEP 4:
Place the glasses on a clean drainer
with the opening facing up for imme-
diate use. Glasses which you’re not
going to use immediately should be
placed with the opening facing down.
Never put a cloth under the glasses.
