Whether you're in a pub or a club, you'll be the life of the party, bar none, thanks to this Howcast video series on bar life and the art of drinking.

You Will Need

  • Olive oil or cooking oil
  • Foamy beer
  • A spoon

Steps

  1. Don't drink unless you're of legal age. Drink responsibly, and never drink and drive.

  2. Step 1

    Pour a very small amount of olive oil onto the foam.

  3. Step 2

    Let the oil spread through the foam or spread it with a spoon. The oil will break down the foam by bursting the tiny bubbles.

  4. You can also get rid of beer foam by using the oil from your skin, as long as you don't mind sticking your finger in your beer.

  5. Step 3

    Refill your beer glass, because with the foam gone you can pour in more beer. Repeat the process if more foam builds.

  6. The color in bird feathers is created by nanostructures with a structure similar to beer foam.
