    I’ve always thought the perfect vessel for one of those stunt-hopped IPA’s was a 2’x2’ plastic cat littler pan...

    I have only read the first post but I don't care! It confirmed what I thought this thread was going to be about ... Belgian beer!

    I will readily admit, I am a "beer snob". The time you'll see me purchasing the mass-produced swill is when family is coming, because that's what most of them prefer. But I'm not above drinking it when that's what's on hand, either.
    The "real men"/old school justifications are pretty comical though.

    In the 50s and 60s Piggly Wiggly was the name of a grocery chain. The store signs had a big cartoon pig, IIRC.

    Edit: Oops... I see @tery beat me to it.

    It still IS the name of a grocery chain. Just a smaller chain these days.

    On beerware, I need a Pilsner glass because I always break a tulip glass. I have several mugs with emblems and graphics. I do not drink from them. they are ornamental.

    Currently enjoying a pint of A Silence Beyond Comprehension, brewed by Burial Beer Co. in partnership with the Asheville Symphony. So it's great beer AND musical. :p

    I got the taste for this in China years ago. Nice refreshing and fairly light beer and available in Aus. Originally started brewing in China by a German Company years ago now continued by the Chinese.

    I'd like someone from Belgium to confirm or deny this. When I was in Belgium (Ghent and Antwerp) around 2000, I recall learning that each beer had its own glass and that in pubs, if all the glasses on hand for a specific beer where in use, you'd have to order a different beer!

    I do fall on the side of the discussion that the shape of the glass matters (affects the taste) of beer and wine. But that doesn't stop me from drinking out of a bottle under the right circumstances.
