Beer on tap is seemingly much better compared to it being bottled up. But tap, might not always be better. Charles Bamforth, author of Beer is Proof God Loves Us and a professor of malting and brewing sciences at UC Davis tells Chow how he decides to go tap or bottle.
you have only one or two on tap and the person knows what they're doing
and at the end of the day they're cleaning the lines and then rerunning
the beer through the taps to expunge any cleaning solution, at the end
of the day, it has the potential to be the best."
To get the best beer on tap, ask the bar or restaurant which beer is
sold most, Bamforth advises.
