TIP OF THE DAY: Drink Beer From A Globe Glass

Historically, different beers have been drunk from differently-shaped glasses. For example, Germans created the tall pilsner and the handled stein. The British prefer the pint glass. Belgians favor a globe glass.

It turns out that the Belgian glass may be the best for enhancing the flavor of beer.

  • The globe shape captures and directs the beer’s aromas toward your nose.
  • The tapered opening harnesses the foam and enhances the beer’s bouquet.
  • The stem keeps your hand from warming the beer.
  • Like a Champagne glass, a good globe beer glass has etched lines at the bottom of the bowl that help to create a continuous stream of bubbles.

    Wine glass expert Riedel—which makes a different-shaped glass to enhance the unique qualities of each type of wine—sells a modified globe glass for beer.
