It really depends on the beer. I love necking a cold bottle or can of lager like a Bud, Schlitz or Moretti but I wouldn't think of drinking a good Belgium beer or Guinness out of anything but a good glass.

A good bitter has to come in a glass, probably a tankard, because it comes in a barrel.

I have to admit I always like a beer more when they served it to me in a frosted beer mug - but thats just me.

Sorry Donny, could it be from the town of Luettich or its brewer? Not sure. In Belgium they have almost as many glass types as they have beers and it is fun to collect them, and the beer to go with them. One of my favourites is Duval. I love to use different glasses and to see that frosting on a hot day is one of the best sights around. God, go to go and grab a brew. LOL

[quote=rachael24]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. [/quote] "Good" beer is wonderful out of a glass, just as good beer shouldn't be served ice cold. ;) If you can't drink it out of a glass its probably because it has off-aromas that you can't detect straight out of the bottle. And it may be the very same reason that same beer is best served ice cold, because that beer doesn't taste good unless something in the beer is masked with lower temperatures. ;)

Happy New Year! for me, when it comes to having a cold one I prefer a big glass mug... chilled!

How about at beer festivals? Most provide plastic tasting glasses, like little mini pilsners. The really good ones give you glass, which I prefer. Savor, in Washington DC gives out stemmed glasses shaped like mini brandy snifters. They're pretty, and concentrate the aromas to your nose.

Even I like drinking beer straight from the bottle, do hell with glasses, they give me immense satisfaction.

I agree, MisterD. Really good beer, as it warms, changes in profile. It becomes more intense while the secondary and tertiary aromas emerge and blend. It definitely enhances food.

The traditionally held-to-be proper way to drink from a wine glass, especially when drinking white or otherwise chilled wine, is to grasp it by the stem. The most commonly accepted reasoning for this is to avoid fingerprints on the bowl, and to prevent the temperature of the wine from being affected by body heat.
