Buying Guide

Craft beers are bigger than ever, and breweries have been popping up everywhere these past few years. While it’s great to hang out and sample new beers at breweries and restaurants, it’s now just as easy to try them out at home. Stores that sell alcohol have massively expanded their beer aisles, with extensive selections of individual cans and bottles, four-, six-, 12-packs and cases.

Like wine, beer tastes better when you serve it in the right glass. When you drink it right from a can or bottle, the experience is not quite the same and there’s a scientific reason for that. Most of the flavor you get from beer is detected through your nose, and only glasses allow for that. The right kinds also let you admire the appearance of the beer.

Beer glasses lend themselves to personalization, making great gifts; the more personalized they are, the better. If they make the person laugh, you get extra points! These beer glasses are also usually not very expensive. You can find ones for specific kinds of beer lovers, ones sold in sets for couples, ones designed for animal lovers and ones that cover plenty more niches.

It helps to understand the different kinds of beer glasses before shopping for one. Traditional American pint glasses hold 16 ounces, with a wider mouth and narrower base. These are general-purpose glasses, suitable for most beers, sodas, juices and water. Imperial pint glasses hold 20 ounces and resemble the American pint but with a lip below the mouth. Use these for British ales, lagers and different stouts for the best results.

A pilsner glass is tall and slim with a flat base and a wider mouth and holds about 12 to 14 ounces. IPA beer glasses usually have narrow stems to hold and tall, slender bowls. You can also find beer glasses shaped like goblets for stronger beers or thistle beer glasses for Scotch ales and wheat beers.

Of course, traditionalists also hold places in their heart for old-fashioned beer mugs. Consider how impressed your beer-nut guests will be if you serve their favorite drink in the appropriate glass!

No matter what you do, it’s always important to drink responsibly. Ask for a ride if you need one, and if you see a friend who shouldn’t be behind the wheel, call them a cab or use a ride-sharing app.

What to Look For

  • The correct way to pour beer is to do it slowly and steadily, directed at the bottom of your glass.
  • Don’t worry about excess foam; the liquid will drain out, and the foam will become stable.
  • Beer glasses should always be squeaky clean before using and you can chill them in the freezer ahead of time if you like.
  • You can wash some, but not all, personalized beer glasses in a dishwasher. If you’re not careful enough, the lettering and graphics can fade over time. Wash them by hand with a bottle brush for the most longevity.
  • For a great all-in-one gift idea, buy a funny beer glass and a six-pack to go along with it!

More to Explore

Though most beers worldwide contain from 4% to 6% alcohol by volume, many are much higher, putting wines and hard liquors to shame.

The strongest one in the world is Snake Venom, which is made in Scotland and sports a whopping 67.5% ABV, which is much higher than many liquors. It is sold by the bottle, and you would definitely need to pace yourself with this one. You might even want to serve this in shot glasses rather than beer glasses!
