National Beer Day: Finding the Best Beer Glasses

The Best Beer Glasses for National Beer Day

Summer is finally here and the beer gardens are packed. But if you’re like me and you prefer a chilled relaxed vibe rather than a busy loud atmosphere, then I would suggest finding out what beer glasses you need to have your own beer terrace in the back garden.

Why is it important to have the Best Beer Glasses?

There are so many different types of beer all round the world to enjoy. Each created with different flavours, tastes and types of grains. As there are so many different types, it’s important to drink the beer out of the glass it is best suited to. 

Glassware plays a big part in the taste and reaction of a lot of drinks. Of course you could pour yourself your favourite beer into any old glass you have handy and successfully drink your beer. But there is a reason why lots of beers are traditionally served in certain glasses. Not only because they look nice which is always a bonus but the way the glass is shaped helps the beer to taste it’s best. 

Old beer glasses that have been used and washed many times can often make beer go flat quicker and make it taste off. Do you think you need to update your collection of beer glasses? Read on below to find the best bee glasses to choose.

What Beer goes in Which Glass? 

As we all know there are thousands of types of beer so i’ll just walk you through the classics and most popular ones. 


A Pilsner Glass is used for many types of light beers, including pale lager or pilsner. They are tall, slender and tapered so the glass reveals the colour and the carbonation of the beer, while the broad top helps maintain a beer head. 


The Tulip Glass is commonly used for stronger brews, such as double IPAs, Belgain ales and barleywines. The bulb-like bowl allows you to generously swirl around your beer, releasing the full aromas.

Dimpled Mug / Stein Beer Glass

According to the designers, the Stein Glass was invented with dimples to soften the intimidatingly bitter beer by giving it a more inviting taste. This beer glass was designed wih a mascluine look in mind, as beer was commonly drunk by males. The stein beer glass looks great while in use but also on display in the home, that’s what it is one of the best beer glasses you can get your hands on. 


The classic Snifter is best for higher-gravity or higher-alcohol beers. Although snifter glasses are usually used for cognac or brandy, they’re also perfect for big, aromatic beers.
