Too often I see self-proclamations of beer lovers that advertise all kinds of equipment to cool down the beer to arctic temperatures.
I am not sure how these people qualify as beer lovers.
If you numb your taste buds by cooling down the beer to freezing temperatures, how does that allow one to taste and enjoy the beer?
If you’d cool down a wine to similar temperatures, lots of people would complain and call it a sacrilege. But for beer it’s somehow permissible and even encouraged.
I don’t get it at all and prefer to drink my beer at temperatures at which I would also drink wine.
