Why Craft Beer Glasses are Different
If you think that all beer glasses are the same – think again! Drinking craft beer directly from a bottle or can is a very different experience from drinking it from a craft beer glass. The glass material and shape can affect the taste of your beer for the better, and here is why:
Much like when certain beers taste better when served at an optimal temperature, the drinking experience can be enhanced further when the beer is served in different glassware.
For example, a craft beer mug with a handle is ideal for serving Lager and other beers that are best served cold and in large quantities. The wide rim of this classic style craft beer glass allows the beer drinker to take large sips without letting your body heat transfer through the glass to the beer.
The main goal of any large craft beer glass, including glass mugs and pint glasses, is to become empty before the craft beer gets warm. It is also usual for craft beer glasses to be etched on the inside, usually with a brand name or decoration, which helps the beer carbonate and create a good head of foam on top of the glass.
So, there you go! Now you know why craft beer is best served in a perfect beer glass.
