Chart: The perfect temperatures for beer (and other beverages).

A handy and nice chart from GB Energy Supply showing the perfect temperature for various beverages.

It’s in Celsius, because the rest of the world hasn’t switched back yet, but here are some conversions.

  • Average refrigerator temperature: 37-38ºF
  • Bottled beer: 39-43ºF
  • Standard lager and kegs: 41-46ºF
  • Cask ale: 52-55ºF

So if you pour your refrigerator chilled beer into a glass, it’s still probably too cold for full appreciation. This is one of the many reasons I despise chilled glassware.
