    When you have good beer...it is a crime to not have appropriate glassware.

    Piggly Wiggly is absolutely and unquestionable the best business name anywhere. I'm willing to be corrected, but come on, "Piggly Wiggly".

    I guess beer is the new wine.
    I have no problem drinking beer or wine out of any shaped glass. I actually don't like wine glasses, they get tipped over and also break too easily.

    I have some interesting Guinness glasses- but they are for visitors.

    I've been using this pewter object, for 45 years. It's quite a relic, if you look closely. ;)

    What's the matter with drinking it straight from the bottle? :p

    Well, my real name is Phil E. Stein.

    What’s wrong with drinking from the 16oz aluminum can it comes in?

    It's probably inappropriate for me to post this picture, as I've only been to Wisconsin once, and that was to collect mink carcasses for a museum. But that's another story.

    Maybe some of you wisco folks have already described this practice, so apologies for claim jumping. Got to be a few beer boot stories out there somewhere? All I know is that there is some technique involved with draining it down to the toe and some tradition about who buys the next round, ja?

    It's beer. It's perfect in any glassware, or no glassware.

    Exactly.
    Open, drink, rinse, recycle.
    No washing up.

    I was told years ago it lets the beer breathe before you sampled it. Something I guess aficionados know something I don’t
    I prefer a nice heavy based stein over a glass over a bottle over a can.

    I used to drink from aluminum cans all the time until some guy told me the aluminum will give you Alzheimer's disease. Weird thing is I can't remember who told me that or when.

    1. Good beer is designed to lose 20-30% of its carbonation before you drink it. Carbonation has a bitter taste.
    2. If you aren't pouring it in a glass, your beer is too bitter.
    3. Beer is intended to be drunk through a layer of foam. No glass, no head.
    4. Beer smells good, but you can't smell it when you drink from a bottle.
    5. Beer is sold in dark bottles, because UV light will destroy it. But we drink it from clear glass, so that you can observe its beauty.
    6. Metal mugs add an acidic sharpness to anything you drink from them. Glass is inert, and does not detract from the flavor.
    7. Few people outside of the gutter would drink wine from a bottle. Why would you drink beer from one?

    You might be right, but when you start numbering all your rules, you end up not getting invited to any parties. Drinking alone isn't good for your health, even in Portlandia.:)

    The best beer glass is a full one.

    I was served stout in one of those bastardized brandy snifters once.

    I never ordered stout at that joint again . (They also had cocktails with botanicals...:rolleyes:)

    Folks that would go on in detail about why one of those fancy stemware deals is better than your standard pint glass or refuse to drink any swill beer ever, are folks I prefer not to drink with...o_O
