BEER MAN SiG MT 21 Like the tulip glass, the thistle is a tad more stretched-out with less curvature at the lip. It is fashioned aer the national flower of Scotland; you guessed it, the thistle. It too has a short stem geared for swirling. Beer Types: Scottish ales, double IPAs and barley wines. is attractive glassware has an hourglass figure designed to capture the beer's aroma. e slightly curved out rim allows for a foamy head to form. e wide bowl and short stem make it easy to swirl the contents and release the aroma. Like a goblet or snier, tulip glasses are best suited for dark, strong beers. Beer Types: Scotch ale, Saison, Belgian pale ale, Belgian strong ale, Imperial stout, strong brews, barley wines, high-gravity beers and even some fruit Lambic, Gueuze and Flanders Red. ese glasses may be plain Jane or feature a decorative gold or silver inlay. Either way, they offer a fancier way to enjoy a beer. While the chalice is similar to the goblet, it typically has thicker walls and weighs more. Each comes with a thick stem that makes a seamless transition into the round bowl and a wide mouth meant for retaining a thick head on the beer. Both are ideal for drinking heavy malt beers. Beer Types: Belgian style tripels, dubbles and strong ales. is curvaceous little vixen of a vessel features a wide lip and rounded bowl with a series of ridges at the base. e unique design helps preserve the frothy head while amplifying the complex flavor profile of those hop-forward IPAs. Some even have etching on the bottom that is meant to release carbonation and encourage a steady stream of bubbles to rise to the top. Beer Types: Belgian is brew-specific vessel is precision-engineered for maximum enjoyment when drinking a stout. It features a hollow stem that enhances the foam while delivering the roasted malts, coffee and sweet chocolate aromatics straight to the nose.
