How to Choose the Right Beer Glass?
Beer Glasses Buyers’ Guide
A pint glass is a type of drinkware made to hold either an imperial pint which is 20 imperial fluid ounces (568 ml) or an American pint of 16 fluid ounces (473 ml). Pint glasses are usually used to serve beer and sometimes cider. A pint glass came about in the United Kingdom, where the law requires craft beer be sold in Imperial measurements, so to ensure that a pint of beer is actually a pint, they starting using certified one-pint glasses. Pint glasses come in all shapes and sizes such as conical (also called sleevers), jug glasses (also called dimple mugs), tulip, and can-shaped. These different glasses have their advantages, some are shaped to reduce spilling, some are shaped to be easily stackable and others are designed to be less prone to tipping.
Typical beer glasses are around 6 inches (15 cm) tall and 1 inch (25 mm) in wide in diameter over their height.

There are a few methods to frosting beer glasses. With one method, start with a completely clean glass and make sure it is at room temperature. Wet the exterior of the beer glass with cold water, and place it on a flat surface in the freezer. This will turn the water droplets into crystals while condensation is also forming on the mug, and the whole process will take around 20-60 minutes. A second method is for those who are impatient or didn’t plan ahead. Fill the mug with ice cubes and swish them around so they touch all surfaces. Then put the mug in the freezer right away and in about 5-8 minutes your frosty glass will be ready. With method three, wrap some damp paper towels around the exterior of a beer glass and set the mug in the freezer. It will take around 3 or 4 minutes to achieve a frosty look.
