Have you ever watched a waiter bring a mouth-watering dessert to the next table - one that looked so good it took your breath away? You wanted one, too.

Don't you feel the same way about beer? With so many beautiful tulips, flutes, goblets, chalices, pokals, and Luettich balloon glasses available, I feel slighted when the waiter brings me a beer in a straight pint glass or mug. Do you agree with me? When will the restaurants and bars understand they will sell more beer to girls if they treat us right?

My husband is absolutely horrified when we are at a restaurant and they serve him beer out of a plastic cup. We don't return to the restaurant! At the back of the Belgian beer bottles (Chimay comes to mind) there are specific instructions about the type of glass you are to serve it in.

Actually I prefer my beer straight out of the ice cold bottle. Never a can! The only glass I have really enjoyed is that yard-long one with the round cavity at the bottom. You know, the one they use for chugging contests? I actually won a beer drinking contest on the old Mardi Gras cruise ship back in 75. I didn't even like beer then but I'd learn to chug in college and still have my trophy to prove it. I was the only female in the competition and I totally blew the guys away.

A whole other topic on beer glasses is how clean they are. If the beer foam doesn't lace up on the side of the glass or if it doesn't produce a good head, then the glass is not really clean and well rinsed. My husband (the Bud draft manager) has given tons of classes to folks in the industry on BCG's (beer clean glasses). I hear that no one's continued that since he retired.

Cleanliness can be a problem. Beer glassware should always be hand washed, preferably using a three-sink system. The first sink washes, the second rinses, and the third one sanitizes.

Left-over, excess liquid should be dumped into an open drain, away from the sanitary conditions of the three sinks.

The washing sink should contain warm water and a solution of odorless, low-sudsing, non-fat, cleaning compound. A nylon brush should be used to wash all surfaces, both inside and outside, as well as the bottom of the glass.

The rinse sink should be filled with hot rinse water. Glasses should be rinsed �heel-in, heel out� for complete assurance that all parts of the glass are well rinsed. In this method, the glass is completely submerged into the rinse water by placing the glass in, bottom first. You then remove it from the water bottom first. This method prevents the formation of air pockets that may otherwise prevent the glass from being completely rinsed.

The sanitizing sink is the third step. This sink is filled with hot water and a sanitizing chemical that is specifically designed for beer and bar glasses. The same �heel-in, heel-out� method that was used for rinsing should be used for sanitizing.

They are some good tips about the glass...and I use most of these techniques when serving beer. I always use a pint glass or a pilsner glass. Never use the bottle or can.

I cannot drink beer out of a glass. It is something about the smell of beer in a glass that bothers me. The smell is not that strong from a bottle or a can. In a glass, your nose is right there as you drinking and your nose hits it firsat as well before your mouth does.

It may just be me but I just cannot drink beer from a gflass or a mug.

Of course I can drink it from a mug if I drop a shot glass of whiskey into it and then drink it. lol.

Hi. New here. Can you tell me anything about the Luettich balloon glass? How it got its name, for instance.

Thanks
