Beer and Bureaucracy

July 13, 2019

With the spirit of Independence Day still alive the entire month of July, what better way of honoring the founding fathers than learning about their beer of choice. Fizzics is here to provide a brief timeline of the former presidents’ beer shenanigans. Fizzics supports our fellow beer enthusiasts and urges all to savor in the delicacy of a nitro style beer from our draft beer dispenser called DraftPour, and its state-of-the-art Micro-Foam Technology.

Our Founding Fathers in Foam

Starting off our history lesson is George Washington. Good old George was said to enjoy English style porter and even brewed his own light ale on his plantation. Next up is the third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson was serious about homebrewing and created his famous recipes at his estate’s brewery.

During James Madison’s presidency, Madison proposed a government-run brewery, but Rutherford B. Hayes halted that dream years later when he ordered a ban on alcohol in the White House. Woodrow Wilson took this much further, shutting down all of the country’s breweries for the sake of conserving grain for the troops.

Beloved FDR repealed the 18th amendment in 1933, which meant no more Prohibition! JFK kept the momentum going, enjoying a drink himself, with his beverage of choice being Heineken. The 39th president, Jimmy Carter, allowed homebrewing to be legal in the US during his presidency. Recent president Barack Obama is a fellow homebrewer and has even shared his personal recipes with the public.

Don’t Fear the Foam: The Science Behind Why You Need Good Head

May 15, 2019

One of the quintessential components of a great beer is the perfect head. While perhaps it was a previously underrated and underestimated element of beer in decades and generations past, the foam that graciously adorns each and every beer adds to its flavor, aroma, and even visual appeal. You know how we know that? Science. Yep, that’s correct — through science we’ve been able to ascertain that beer foam actually makes the beer taste better. Who would've guessed it?!

At Fizzics, science is precisely what we used when we developed our state-of-the-art technology we call Micro-Foam. Our DraftPour utilizes fluid dynamics and sonic technology, all patented and engineered by our experts to enhance every visceral sensation of the beer drinking experience. From the way it smells to its taste, the way it looks, its rich, creamy mouthfeel, and the way it sounds...you know that sound of a fresh draft being poured, right?

Anyway, beer foam is no longer something to discard, pour off, or otherwise neglect and disregard. It’s critical to the way we experience your favorite beer. Let’s take a look at the science behind why.

Foam Fundamentals

The creation of bubbles creates beer foam. This process is known as nucleation. It involves proteins and peptides found in the grains that act as foaming agents and can determine the amount of foam in each distinct type of beer. In fact, individual beer foams can range in retention, texture, rigidness, and more.

Releasing the Flavor

When a beer is topped with a head of foam, it tastes better because of compounds that permeate the walls of the bubbles as they rise up from the bottom of the glass. Fizzics Micro-Foam’s creamy head softens the palate, making it more receptive to the subtle flavors, notes, and undertones in the beer. Not only that, but since Micro-Foam allows more flavor compounds to rise to the surface of the beer, the aroma is enhanced, which in turn helps to improve flavor.
