Unlike the typical American pint glass, this style holds up to 20 ounces and includes a lip at the top, making it good for almost every brew and best for British ales and lagers.
The round body and flared lip of this glass—enhancing aroma and a hearty swirl—is meant to heighten the experience of Belgian ales and other malty, hoppy beers.
The ridges on the bottom help the hoppy aromatics of India pale ales; the tall, rounded top helps send those notes straight to the nose and taste buds.
A slender bottom and round top pull out the rich flavors of stouts liked roasted malts and notes of coffee or chocolate. The wide top shape maintains the beer’s head longer.
