Foamy beer is almost always caused by one or more of nine different issues:

Agitated Beer
Incorrect Temperature
Incorrect CO2 Pressure
Excessive Beer Stone
Cleaning Issues
Improper Pour
Dirty Glassware
Kinked Beer Line
Short Beer Line

And we posted short articles covering all of these causes, and their solutions to the Kegerator troubleshooting section of this web site.

There is a unique foamy beer problem experienced by owners of low cost home kegerators with beer towers.

With most of these kegerators, the first ½ glass of beer is always foamy. This is because cold air is heavier than warm air and it sinks down into the kegerator and because the beer tower is mounted on top, it stays at room temperature. And so are the top of the beer line, the beer faucet & beer shank that are inside and attached to the beer tower. The first ½ glass of beer passes through the warm beer line, faucet & shank and warms up and the CO2 breaks out of the beer causing foam. The second ½ glass and subsequent glasses are OK as long as you keep pouring because now everything is cold. But you will get another ½ glass of warm beer after 15 – 20 minutes have passed without dispensing a beer. We address this problem with our BEER TOWER COOLER.
