Beer Glasses: How to Truly Experience A Pint
Having the right beer glassware can turn a casual drink with friends into a fun and unique experience. Much like wine and spirits, different types of glassware allow you to get the most taste out of different styles of beer. If you don’t know whether your favorite drink is best served out of beer tubes, stemware, or tall glasses, now might be a good time to find out. In addition to being fun and decorative, specialty beer glassware is also highly useful for the beer aficionado.
Beer glassware is not just decorative. Different shaped glasses channel the scent of the beer up into your nose so you can fully appreciate the bouquet of your glass. The smell affects the way the beer tastes, so the right glassware can also help you appreciate your beer more. Finally, different shaped glasses allow oxygen to permeate the beer at different rates, which allows you to fully appreciate the crisp taste of a highly carbonated beer, or the flatness of a stout. Pilsners are best drunk out of narrow glasses like stemware with a constricted mouth, or tall thin pint glasses. Lagers and stouts, on the other hand, are best enjoyed from glasses that allow the beer to breath such as wide-mouthed pint glasses, steins, and stemware with a broad bowl shape.
We carry a wide variety of glassware for all types of beers. in addition to traditional pub glasses of all shapes and sizes, there is also a wide selection of novelty beer tubes based on a number of different themes. These tubes can be placed in the center of a table at a party, and allow guests to draw their own beers. They are fun, colorful, and eye-catching, sure to start conversations and liven up your get together. You can even buy long-lasting chill sticks to keep the beer in the tubes cold for hours.
