The Perfect Beer Glass
May 1, 2006
|Do you drink your beer straight from the bottle or (shudder) a can? Well put it down right now and find yourself a clear, tulip-shaped glass. Yes, we said tulip shaped!|
That is the perfect glass for fully appreciating a fine beer, according to the folks at Leinenkugel’s Brewery.
• The clear glass is so you can identify the color and clarity of the brew.
• The wide opening allows you to place your schnoz close to the suds, the better to smell the aromas released in the foam head.
• The tapered neck concentrates the aromas.
• And the fluted top serves as a great collar to hold a substantial foam head.
And please, be sure your glass is beer-cleaned. (Click here for more )
If you still insist on drinking straight from the bottle, at least sniff the bottle as soon as you open it. Use your sense of smell as the first step in enjoying a great brew.
