Beer, check. Glass, check—or so you thought. Getting the right glass is just as important as bringing home the best brew. Below our beer glass guide lets you know whether you need a pint or tulip glass or a good ‘ole hefty mug.
1 – Classic Pilsner
Like its slightly taller and leaner cousin, the classic Pilsner glass is perfectly designed for showcasing the glowing tones of the lighter red and golden beers.
2 – Tall Pilsner
There’s nothing better than a tall Pilsner glass to show off the color, clarity and effervescence of light colored beers, especially when sipped in the sunshine.
3 – Schooner Glass
Also called Goblets, wide-topped Schooner Glasses are designed to maintain the head of the beer. As a bonus their shape is classy and sophisticated.
4 – American Pint Glass
With its conical shape and sleek lines the American Pint Glass is preferred by bartenders worldwide for its durability and versatility.
5 – Tulip Glass
Aromatic Lambics (tasty soured beers) and IPAs truly bloom in these elegant glasses, the flared shape of which helps with head retention.
6 – Beer Mug
The iconic shape of this hefty, spacious mug is derived from centuries-old German beer stein designs which feature a lid to keep out disease-carrying flies.
