The perfect temperatures for beer, wine and beverages.

For many people, an ice-cold beer or glass of wine is the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer’s day. But while extremely chilled beverages might provide refreshment, they often don’t really provide much taste. This is because very low temperatures can actually stop your tongue working properly, diminishing the drink’s flavour. In fact, many people suspect that the very biggest brewers encourage you to drink their beers at extremely low temperatures because they don’t want you to taste it properly.
