Variation in beer glassware has become more prevalent within the craft beer industry in recent years. The generic shaker pint is becoming less prevalent and there are more snifters, tulip, and Weizen glasses being utilized in return... and there is a purpose for that!

When assessing glassware for beer, an important function of glassware is how well it retains beer’s foamy head. Head is important for two reasons, one of which is presentation of the beer.  The second significance of head retention is that it traps in the compounds in beer that contribute to a beer’s aroma, referred to as volatiles. Volatiles dissipate quicker when a beer has no head.

The Pint glass is a slightly tapered cylinder. Although common, the 16 oz tumbler pint glass was not originally intended for beer, as it was designed for shaking cocktails (Shaker pint). The 20 oz Imperial Pint glass, also known as a Shoulder Pint, is preferred and has a bulge towards the top that aids in head
retention, helps in stacking glasses, and keeping a tight grip of the glass.
Ideal for: Pale ales, Amber ales, IPAs, Brown ales, Porters, and Stouts.

Ideal for: German lagers or anything you want to drink a lot of.
