The shapes of the glasses have been selected by our Beer Sommelier to cover a wide range of beer styles:
Footed Goblet -a great choice for heavy, malty beers, such as Belgian ale and German bocks. Sports a wide opening that assists a beer drinker in analyzing the overall flavor profile and aromas and creates a constant swirl of bubbles, thus creating and retaining a perfect creamy and stable head.
Chalice- Oval design allows a foamy head and complex aromas to develop. The stem at the foot of the glass, which works just like the stem on a white wine glass giving you something to hold without grabbing the main bowl, so your warm hands stay away from the cool lager.
Pilsner Glass- is tall and skinny with little-to-no curvatures as it goes up. When the beer is poured, it runs smoothly down the side of the glass, but upon passing the 'kink' line it splashes into the lower chamber and is nucleated. This frothing carbonation gives a smooth, foamy head to the beer as it fills to the widening rim.The pilsner glass is designed and used primarily for lighter beers, such as pilsners, of course.
Yeast Glass - small 2-3oz glass for experimenting with yeast heavy beers
Two sets of half-sized glasses that are perfect for tastings and sharing beers
The yeast glasses can be used for experimenting with yeast-rich beers
The tasting guide note pages are in a pad with a hole to fit around a bottle neck to mark and identify the corresponding bottle
