Beer is the world’s most popular alcoholic beverage. It’s also brewed using a wide variety of flavors and styles. Typically, people drink beer from a mug or a bottle, but some choose to drink it from a mug with a cap. Drinking out of the wrong vessel can reduce the amount of beer you drink and can also cause you to choke. To avoid these problems, people often serve themselves beer from special glasses. This is because different types of beer require different types of glasses to taste properly. The common beer glass has a wide base to keep the liquid stable and a narrow top to allow for easy drinking. The inside of the glass is usually dark since this helps maintain the temperature of the beer. Dark colored bottles opaque from burning color to prevent light from affecting the contents. Beer is usually served in a glass vessel to keep it fresh. However, in some countries, such as Germany, people serve beer in steins or goblets topped with a drinking horn. These pieces allow people to drink deeper and more quickly without getting sloshed. Some steins have handles for easy transportation; others have lids for when they’re in the refrigerator. Some goblets have cups built into the base so beer drinkers can get extra foam on their drinks without messing up their glasses. Many Germans reserve their finest crystal for their favorite beverage- beer. They use this beautiful glass for their daily beers and sometimes for their hard liquor as well- which they also serve in special goblet-like glasses called Weinglaces or Weingläser. These glasses have a wide bowl with straight sides so that all your food doesn’t get stuck in the sides like it does in a typical drinking bowl- which has curved sides and a rounded top (also known as a wine goblet). The bottom of these drinking glasses are called Matting and they’re used to keep things from slipping while you’re drinking. Based on these examples, it’s clear that beer drinkers worldwide hold high standards for their favorite beverage when it’s served in proper glassware. The common glass helps preserve the contents while decorative goblets add visual appeal and functionality to each sip. Because of how important proper drinking vessels are, many bars and restaurants custom design different types of glasses for their customers’ enjoyment.
