Beer Journal #8: Drinking Beer At Home, I'll Be Using a Glass

I have been drinking my beers from the bottle. Yesterday, in order to see the color of my beer, I poured a small amount in a glass. The color was, well it was colorful. Of course, I drank what was in the glass. As quick as a bolt of lightning, I realized I've been drinking beer all wrong. Tipping a glass is a better way to drink beer. It tastes better and goes down easier.

I figured that if the juice glass I experimented with made my bottled beer taste better, just think what a glass designed especially for drinking beer would do. I searched online for a few minutes and with very little deliberation, placed an order for four glasses like those pictured above.

I almost ordered a set of several differently shaped glasses, each glass for a different type of beer. I balked at having to think about which glass to grab. When I saw the Teku glass, appropriate for all beer types, I looked no further. The following description cinched the sale. I grabbed it from the website and dragged it over here.

Shaddy .. I can NOT imagine drinking a beer in anything other than a tall clear glass. YES studying the color and the 'head' on the top. The pouring of the beer into the tall clear glass is an art form in and of itself. Smiles .. Cap and Patti ..

CAP & PATTI: I like the easy route no matter what I'm doing. Now I'll have to wash at least one beer glass by hand EVERYDAY. I don't hardly have time for that!!! HA HA!!
