A pint for Dionysus

Longtime readers may know that I find most arguments about ‘the proper glass’ for beer to be ridiculous.

The glass should be clean. If it is, drink yer beer.

But I have to admit that this glass is pretty awesome. Admittedly, this is in part because I can understand its usefulness immediately. Plus, it’s a way to double fist in a single fist!

  2. Your point is spot on. Clean glass and a beer equals consume. Having said that, some of his other glassware looks pretty cool. I am especially taken with the Malty Beer Glass.

    • No kidding! I certainly am not opposed to beautiful glasswork and this dude has some very pretty things.

  3. After visiting Belgium, Germany, and living in England. I would like to debate that using any clean glass to enjoy your beer is wrong. For example, drinking Gueuze or Westmalle from a standard shaker pint glass is a horrible idea. I guarantee you that your experience wouldn’t be the same as drinking from a small flute for Gueuze or a chalice for Westmalle. Those glasses enhance those volatile aromas to the nose, change how quickly you consume the beer, and even changes the way you perceive that particular beer. I have many different glasses for different styles of beer and I know when I’m feeling lazy and use a shaker pint glass for a style of beer that isn’t appropriate. I lose out on that beer experience. But great post! Cheers! :)

    • I do hope to do a test like this someday and try the same beer from different glasses. If nothing else, it will settle the question for me!

  4. Glass’? That’s not a word.

    • Also, “its usefulness”. Sorry. Now to the content!

      • If you’d read the content first, you would’ve seen that I was quoting something, the phrase was ” arguments about ‘the proper glass’ “. There was no use of possessive.

        I don’t mind your editorial notes but I don’t think it’s too much to ask that you read it, then provide corrections.
