#MNCleanPint demanding 'beer-clean' glassware, one tweet at a time

#MNCleanPint promotes beer-clean glassware

Picture the perfect beer. Crystal clear with delicate strings of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Nice fluffy head. Rings of lace down the side of the glass as you drink.

Now picture the beer you get in many Twin Cities bars. No head. No lace. And the beer is cloudy, not because of the beer, but because of the gauzy film that coats the glass.

You only get that perfect beer in a "beer-clean" glass. What is a beer-clean glass? It's one that is free of residue; soap, lipstick, grease, bits of salad from the afternoon rush. It's the glass your beer deserves. It's the glass you deserve. Sadly, it's also the glass you too often won't get. But there's a revolution brewing that aims to fix that.


#MNCleanPint is a Twitter revolution that seeks to recognize area bars for serving beer in beer-clean glassware. Just tweet your location along with a picture of that perfectly laced empty glass and the #MNCleanPint hashtag to let others know who's doing right by the beer. By doing so, you also enter yourself to win some excellent prizes.
