The shapes of beer glasses
A beer glass’s shape is specifically designed to enhance the drinking experience, and you’ll find a range of different shapes and sizes to pair with different types of brews. The pint glass is perhaps the most common, recognisable for its cylindrical shape that gets slightly wider at the top. American pint glasses hold 16 ounces, while English pint glasses hold 20 ounces and are preferred for lagers or ales. Mugs and steins are another common shape for beer glasses. They’re sturdy and stout with a handle, which prevents your hands from warming the glass.
