Beer glassware guide: Glasses every beer enthusiast needs
Sponsored by Luigi Bormioli
Drinking your craft beer from a can or a bottle? You could be majorly missing out on its complex flavors. To get the most out of your beer, and to really appreciate all of its flavorful notes, choosing the right glassware for your favorite beers is a must-do.
The reason? Much of beer’s flavor — whether it’s the hops of an IPA or the citrus notes in a summer seasonal — are detected through the nose and that aroma has a strong effect on the palate.
Just in time for Father’s Day (and the outdoor dining season!), we’ve teamed with the glassware experts at Luigi Bormioli to match beers with their best glassware that will help them reach their complete flavor potential. The eco-friendly glasses are made in varying shapes and sizes to optimize aromas and customize the beer-drinking experience. Plus, a “Foam Control System” helps master the perfect pour, maintaining a fine and persistent stream of bubbles to reinvigorate the foamy head.
If you’re shopping for a gift for dad, do a little personal recognizance in the fridge and take note of his favorite brews. Then, gift him with some glassware that will enhance his appreciation for craft beer. Or, if you’re hosting backyard barbecues this summer, stock up your bar cart with the right glasses for every guest’s beer preference. These Italian-crafted glasses are dishwasher-safe and created with a special SON.hyx technology to strengthen the glassware while retaining its shine.
Here’s must-have glassware from the Birrateque collection that every beer lover will want to toast to.
Wheats, meet your match. This bigger glass allows air into the reservoir to oxidize your favorite wheats. The process allows unfiltered aspects of the wheat and sediment to release, giving off aromas of spices, such as clove, or notes such as banana.

If you’re a lover of all things hops, you’ll appreciate the thin body on this glassware that helps your favorite IPA’s maintain their carbonation. The narrow corridor also helps reinvigorate foam and flavor. Click here for the perfect set of IPA glasses for Father’s Day! Only $25 at Luigi Bormioli!
Whether you love a summer seasonal with berry notes or savor the pumpkin flavors of fall, this glass — the largest in the collection — will enhance the season’s flavors.

A good stout is a treat. Get the most out of it by pouring it into this specialized glass.
