I've been noticing that a few of the newer bars always rinse their glasses on a nice little semi-automatic washer thingy immediately before pouring beer into them. Seen this at Belgium Beer Bar, James Squire (King St) and at St Arnou in Melb. Seems to apply no matter what the beer style is.

Is there a real reason this is now the vogue, or is just deemed trendy and more European?

My mate worked in one of the flashy bars that does this in Perth

It supposably does 2 things firstly it cools the glass and secondly it stops the beer 'clinging' to the glass as its poured so it stops the beer from forming a massive head and maintains its head while drinking something to do with surface tension apparantly

well thats what he tells me anyway

seems to work all their beers seem to pour well and retain their head
