The Ultimate Beer Glass Guide

THE ULTIMATE BEER GLASS GUIDE So what's in a beer glass? Hopefully beer! Have you ever thought about the varying designs of different beer glasses and what they do? With this infographic you can learn your snifter from your stein with the Ultimate Beer Glass Guide! Snifter Design The bottom bulges into a bowl shape, tapering into a narrow mouth, similar to traditional cognac and brandy glasses. Way is it this way? To promote head and aroma retention. The Snifter is meant for refined beers with a strong bouquet aroma. What beer goes in it? Barleywine, Strong Ale, Pale Ale, IPA, Eisbock, Stout, Tripel, Quadrupel Tulip Design Shaped much like its namesake flower, the tulip glass has a bulbous body, supported by a stem that narrows and then widens at the top. Way is it this way? The stem allows drinkers to hold the beer without warming it, while the mouth design promotes a thick head, trapping flavour within the beer and holding its aromas close. What beer goes in it? Ale, Pale Ale, Strong Ale, IPA, Lambic, Gueuze Goblet Design The Goblet has a large, wide body that is supported by a thick stem. The bottom walls of the glass are thick, sometimes becoming thinner near the mouth. Why is it this way? Scores in the bottom of the glass allow continual carbonation, and often support up to two full inches of head, What beer goes in it? Belgian IPA, Belgian Strong Dark Ale, Dubbel, Tripel, Quadrupel Pilsner Glass Design A pilsner glass is elegant and tall, resembling a champagne glass with a shorter stem. Way is it this way? The pilsner glass is great for presentation as it allows the colours of the beer to shine through, which is particularly effective with bright lambic fruit beers. The pilsner design also aids carbonation. What beer goes in it? Lambic, Faro, Maibock, Hellesbock, Lager, Weizenbock Weizen Vase Design The weizen is a tall, slender glass that tapers toward the bottom. Way is it this way? The height of the glass allows the beer to show off its colour and carbonation. A nice head can be built at the wider top opening, which will trap the aroma of the beer. What beer goes in it? Pilsner, Lager, Bock, Dopplebock, Hellesbock Stein Design A traditional stein is an iconic glass in the beer world. It is round and squat with thick sides and a handle. Way is it this way? The handle allows one to hold the beer without warming it. The size of the stein allows a large quantity of beer, with plenty of room for head. A stein is sturdy enough for many rounds of hearty clinks and cheers. What beer goes in it? Ale, Lager, IPA, Porter, Dopplebock, Stout, Witbier Nonic Pint Design Basically cylindrical, wider at the mouth than the bottom, with a slight bulge just below the rim. The nonic pint glass is one of the most commonly seen beer glasses, with several European variations. Way is it this way? The wide mouth allows a decent amount of head to form. Nonic glasses are also cheap (as opposed to more elaborate styles) and easy to store. What beer goes in it? Lager, Ale, IPA, Stout, Porter, Beer Cocktail Shaker Pint Design The shaker pint glass has come to be known as the American pint glass, and was originally used to shake cocktails. The design features straight sides and a large mouth. Why is it this way? A shaker pint glass isn't designed with the beer in mind, but rather the bar owner. Shaker pint glasses are cheap to make, easy to store and easy to drink out of. What beer goes in it? Ale, Lager, IPA, Porter, Dopplebock, Stout, Witbier Tulip Pint Design The tulip pint glass is a more modern glass having a taller shape, usually flaring out towards the top. Way is it this way?

Stout, Lager, Ale, IPA, Porter, Beer Cocktail Seidel Design A seidel is a heavy German style glass beer mug that features an extra thick handle, walls and base to give a solid feel.
