Beer Mug Makes Foam At The Press Of A Button

By David Ponce

It’s generally accepted that a good two-finger head of foam atop your beer is a good pour. Something about it bringing out the aroma. But it’s not easy getting that perfect pour every time; you have to tilt the glass at the right angle, and pour at a particular rate, and finally straighten the glass at the right time and finish pouring. It’s hard. But the Japanese have it all figured out. Screw all that stuff and just pour. The above mug has a spring loaded mechanism that generates a bunch of bubbles at the press of a button, even if you completely failed to make any head. From what we gather a hammer will tap against the bottom of the mug, releasing the foam. If the excited folk in the video below are to be believed, it’s quite the fun activity. At $22.50, we’re tempted to try one ourselves…
