    Select a cocktail glass or beer mug and pour in 5/8 ounces of any of your favorite brand of beer.

    Pick a pair of chopsticks and gently place it across the top of the mug or glass. Now, push both of the chopsticks close together in order to give them a bridge across the top of your cocktail glass.

    Note: Try not to push the chopsticks all the way against each other, making sure to keep a little space in between.
