Glassware Chalice/Goblet GLASSWARE MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THE FLAVOURS AND AROMAS OF THE BEER YOU ARE DRINKING. IT IS A VITAL INSTRUMENT IN HOW WE ENJOY OUR DRINKS SO HERE’S OUR GUIDE TO HELP YOU ENSURE YOU ARE SERVING THE RIGHT BEER INTO THE RIGHT GLASS. Thick walls, a hefty base and a wide bowl define the chalice. The wide rim shows off the head of the beer and allows for confident deep sips. Goblet glass is similar to the chalice but generally lighter and more delicate with thinner glass walls and a longer stem. GREAT FOR: Begian quadrupels, triples, doubles, high-ABV beers.
Flute The flute is from the world of Champagne but lends itself to certain types of beer rather well. The long and narrow body enhances the carbonation and allows for a more intense and upfront aroma. GREAT FOR: Lambic, sour, wild ale. Mug The mug glass is a traditional British and German (Stein) vessel with heavy walls, sturdy base and good sized handle. Whilst instantly recognisable, it does come in many shapes and sizes, the more traditional feature dimpled glass grid patterns. GREAT FOR: Bitter, pale ale, porter, Scottish ale, German lager Pilsner glass This tall, slender and outwardly tapered glass showcases the colour and carbonation of a pils. It allows for excellent head retention and, much like the flute, allows a more intense upfront aroma. GREAT FOR: Pils, lager, bock.
