This has been on my mind for a while now but really hit home the other night while drinking a local brown ale and Founders Porter at ice cold temperatures in a couple local drinking establishments. Around here it has become fortunate that we can walk into most any random bar and find a good selection of taps. However, it would be really nice if bars could work out at least a semi-reasonable temperature that caters to a particular beer style. Now I understand the why in this situation. a) Most people, owners and consumers alike, assume a beer should be cold, very cold. b) The most popular selling beers are Bud, Miller and Coors Light which are only somewhat drinkable if they are nearly freezing. This has also undoubtedly had a contribution on point A. But still, temperature variation would be a more than welcome change around here. It doesn't have to be warm beer, just mildly drinkable and style appropriate. At the very least it shouldn't be about to tip into frozen. So that's my comment. What would the rest of you like to see change in your local bars? ...Oh and proper drinking glasses would be the tits. In Belgium, with their hundreds upon hundreds of beers available, it would still be ridiculous to serve a beer in a glass other than it's own brewery's. That would be great but pretty unrealistic.
