“Why don’t you have chilled pints?”

- Too cold beer retains CO2. This not only means that the consumer gets more “full,” but it also creates a bland taste due to numbed taste buds.

- Frozen glasses = ice crystals. This causes foaming problems during filling, and the frost picks up elements from the freezer which will negatively affect the beer’s taste.

- Coldness masks flavors. In craft beer, there is so much more to experience than the factory adjunct beers and coldness blinds the entire recipe that the brewers created.


SHAKER / PINT GLASS

This glass is durable and inexpensive, because it was intended to be used as a tool for shaking drinks. It does nothing for flavor, aroma, and temperature, which is the reason many turn up their noses in response to this glass.

NONIC / ENGLISH PINT

A true Britain (imperial) pint is 20 ounces vs. the American 16, and this glass ensures no one gets ripped off. The bulb at the top makes for better gripping while standing-and-drinking, and also keeps the rim from chipping.

WEISSBIER / HEFEWEIZEN / WEIZEN / "VASE"

The slender bottom showcases the beer's color, and the taper concentrates the foam and aromas, and the bulbous, outward top and overall glass size is made to hold the large, fluffy head.

SNIFTER

The inward curve keeps in aromas and the large bowls allows the consumer to swirl the beer and release more aromatics. The short stem allows the consumer to hold the glass without warming the beer, or on the contrary: easily cup the glass to warm the beer..

TULIP

The longer stem allows the consumer to hold the glass without warming the beer, and the inward curve keeps in the aromas. It is large enough to hold a beer and its foam. Some have an outward lip which help to hold a frothy head, and also shapes to the consumer's lips/mouth.
