Did You Know There Could Be Around 2 Million Bubbles In A Glass Of Beer?


How many bubbles can a glass of beer produce before it goes flat? According to a new study by Gérard Liger-Belair of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne in France, there can be up to 2 million bubbles in a half-pint glass. 

Liger-Belair and co-author Clara Cilindre, an associate professor at the University of Reims and a researcher in the Molecular and Atmospheric Spectroscopy Group (GSMA), reported in the study that men have been brewing and drinking beer for at least 5,000 years.

No wonder, It is by far the most popular alcoholic beverage in the world, with global production reaching nearly 180 billion litres per year!

However, according to the scientists, the research was not just about counting bubbles.

By studying effervescence in liquids, scientists can learn how drinks behave under different conditions, which in turn influences their taste, Liger-Belair states. He added that the beer industry may benefit immensely from more knowledge about bubble science!
