unless it is from the tap, the beer poured out of a bottle or can will always be missing the foam that draft beer has. so why do you even need the foam? we don’t know. perhaps it is for the same reason why cappuccino needs to have foam, or why wine needs a decanter when it actually doesn’t need one, and so making foam on beer as something of a superfluous addition. however, to booze connoisseurs, dense beer foam means a heighten taste, aroma and apparently, makes a beer feels more like a real beer. but how are you going get that real beer feeling outside of the bar? the answer is the Beer Foamer, a creation by Norm Architects for Menu, that separates the foam creation process from the beer much like what barista does when making cappuccino. so yes, the Beer Foamer is really a milk frother for beer.
on one hand, you empty a cold one into your favorite beer glass and on the other, you introduce around a quarter or half into the beer foamer’s transparent container, place the copper-plated plastic top over the container and fire up the built-in battery driven motor to start the foaming process. in a jiffy, you will have yourself a nice, dense foam just like those found from a draft. just top this holy grail of the golden, alcoholic beverage over your cold brew and boom, your very own draft beer is ready to be poured down your throat. it really is that simple. in fact, the concept is so simple that nobody has really give a thought about it. anyway, there is more good news for serious booze lovers; the Beer Foamer is a real product and can be yours for 299,95 Danish Krone, or about US$55. available on Menu’s webstore.
