Why do we use so many different types of beer glasses?
Our glassware does more than just please the eyes and make for a memorable cheers, beer vessels also supply bonus enjoyment points for the drinker. Glass types maximize the organoleptic qualities of beer; smell, taste, and colour; as well as highlight the foam generated by the beverage when serving it. By matching beer styles to specific beer glasses, we can offer a one-up beer-drinking experience to our patrons.
Let’s get into 5 glass types and the beer styles that they best complement.
Teku glasses are likely the most functional and versatile glass. The tapered bowl and somewhat sexy angular design of the Teku glass both emphasize and focus the aroma of the beer, while the lip of the glass maximizes head retention. This long stem supports temperature control, keeping warm hands off the body of the glass, in turn keeping the beer cooler for longer. We serve our sought-after Fruited Sour IPAs in a Teku.
A uniquely shaped glass that is incredibly important for the IPA style. This slender bottom, bulb-shaped body, and tapered top channel the aroma of IPA, which is a massive component of flavour. A turin glass favours the nose, sharing the ripe IPA aroma for maximum enjoyment.
Easy to hold, excellent head retention, and provides a full display of deep complex beer hues is what give this glass its uniqueness. Like the stemmed version, it has a pronounced tulip shape giving way to a wide mouth. Tulip Pub glasses are notably known as a ‘Guinness glass’, as this Irish dry stout is traditionally served in this glass style. We serve up our Stouts and Porters in Tulip Pub glasses.
Pick up two cans of your favourite Tusket Falls brew. Serve one in the recommended glass, and the other in a classic kitchen cupboard glass to compare the difference for yourself. We also sell glassware in our can shops at both Tusket Falls Brewing locations… Just saying.
