The beer glass debate, does it really make a difference what kind of glass you drink your beer from?

For me personally it does make a difference, even if it is part psychological. Let me try to explain without going into a whole bunch of scientific mumbo jumbo. You see, some glasses are designed to enhance the aromatics, some to showcase the head of the beer , others help in controlling the temperature and some plain and simply just make the beer look more visually appealing, and in my opinion if your going to spend $15.00 or so on a bomber ( 22 ounce bottle of beer ) than why not put it a nice glass to be a adorned. I usually try to use the recommended glass for the style of beer which I am drinking but to be honest on occasion I will grab any old glass that will fit the contents of the goodness that is within my bottle and after half of  the glass is gone ( especially if its an Imperial of some sort with an ABV of 9% or higher ) the furthest thing from my mind is the type of glass that was used as the vessel to get that sweet nectar into my belly. So my recommendation is that if you have the suggested glass on hand, why not use it to sweeten the experience and if you don't then "drink up Johnny ! " no one is looking.

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
