It might seem overly-refined and snobby to insist on a particular beer glass to go along with your favorite beer, but the impact of the perfect mug can make for a truly worthwhile experience. And the beer glass industry is growing exponentially along with increased sales of beer itself. In fact, according to a Beer Institute press release, data had shown nearly $23.6 billion in beer sales for 2011, a jump of nine percent. So it’s no secret that people are more involved in the consumption of alcohol than ever before, and so it makes sense that the public wants to enhance the experience now more than ever.
There are five different beer glass categories to choose from. And thanks to the fine folks over Centralrestaurant, there is now an easy and straight-forward infographic that helps summarize the best uses of each glass for all your favorite beer types.
