Getting Classy with Your Beer Glasses

Let’s talk about beer here. The craft beer movement has been rapidly rising throughout the nation, bringing with it jobs, great economic impact, and delicious new things to enjoy in our downtime.

While craft beer can be enjoyed by anyone, there are some ways to up the level of enjoyment by paying special attention to the deeper complexities that each beer has. Much like wine, which can taste just as good to me out of a white wine glass as a red wine glass or a margarita glass (because I haven’t taken the time to be able to differentiate), I am trying to become a better student of the variety of glasses than can enhance the taste and aroma of craft beer.

Most bars serve all of their pints out of traditional shaker style pints, which are tapered with straight sides. This style is easy to stack and store, which is why they are favored by drinking institutions. The shaker style is one of the cheapest to produce and is usually what’s given away at pint nights or sold as brewery souvenirs, making them easy to find at Goodwill once people realize they’ve got cabinets full of them. Though not favored by beer geeks, these glasses are good for serving IPAs, brown ale, porter, and double/imperial IPAs or stouts.

But to the trained eye, other style glasses can be acquired, for a reasonable price. Buying a full set of glasses for all of the beer styles for your home bar might set you back a lot of cash unless you take the collecting approach. Not caring about having a matching set, or being okay with a tulip glass from Random Beerfest 2012 that someone no longer wants is how you’ll be able to scrounge up the really good ones for a great price.

So what are the key ones to look for? There are dozens of types of glasses to showcase every little nuance from a beer, as many breweries manufacture glasses specific to their products, but here are 10 versatile ones to begin your collection:

Even though I think of myself as a moderately knowledgeable craft beer drinker, my collection isn’t completely rounded out yet, either.FullSizeRender (4)

With some semi-frequent trips and what you need in mind, it should take no time at all to acquire a funky and well-rounded craft beer glass collection for better enjoyment of the finely crafted suds that are available. And for those interested in why each glass is best for what beers, plus a lot more information on the complexities of craft beer, I recommend Tasting Beer by Randy Mosher to get you started.

  29. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  34. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
