Beer Foam Volcano

Saturday, January 25th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I’m not a beer drinker, but I know a lot of people who do enjoy a good brew now and again. Heck, I even know people who like to brew their own at home. Because of that I’ve learned a lot about beer that a non-beer drinker wouldn’t normally know, but I was really fascinated when I stumbled across this article on NPR.

The article investigates the science, in this case physics, behind why tapping or hitting a beer bottle will cause it to turn into a beer foam volcano. 

I think I’ve spent fifteen minutes just watching the .GIF that greets you when you load into the page of someone tapping a beer bottle with another beer bottle and it erupting into foam. It’s all kinds of mesmerizing. 

Navigation is easy once you stop watching that .GIF, just scroll down the page and read the article and check out the animated diagrams created to help explain it.

That’s all there is to it! I just thought it was nifty!
