Sapporo has been conducting a wide range of studies regarding beer foam quality for years. I am going to introduce three topics of our studies, such as an improvement method for the brewing process, breeding of barley with superior foam stability performance, and development of a draft beer dispenser. These studies received the JSBBA (Japan Society for Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Agrochemistry) Award for Achievement in Technological Research in 2015.
