Can we all at least agree that regardless of container, it tastes best poured in a glass?
Yes. But the next question is "What kind of glass?"
I recommend CLEAN ones.
Yep, clean is important. One local bar here does not clean their glasses well and you can always smell the soap/dishwater while you're drinking the beer.
I really just prefer standard pint glasses, but would like to get some of the specialty ones designed for specific styles. Unfortunately I have no more room in my cabinets so that will have to wait.
same problem here. I have found that the Sam Adams specialty glasses work well as a good multipurpose glass. It's a little gimmicky, but the laser etching, IMO, really does work.
I prefer Fat tire in the growler. So I guess that's another vote for glass.
I do want to try one of these.
Etchings in the bottom of the glass FTW.
Besides the Sam Adams glasses, I had seen a friend who had a budweiser one which had the Bud Eagle etched into the bottom of the glass. It was freaking sweet. I think he picked it up at the brewery in st louis.
I had a Miller lite Glass (just broke it last week ) that the etching was the Miller Lite logo. made the beer have that "crispness". I have a couple more bud light glasses that have etchings in a "swastika" shape thats really cool
Drinking again for the Third Reich, are you?
Love me some Paulaner and I am from German heritage so. Yeah.
FYI I got those for the $5 all you can drink $1 refills at Joes a couple years back during march madness....so talk to stan clark about that...
It's well know that Stan Clark is a Nazi...
I have a Joe's cup from a $1 Joe's cup night back in college that has a melted spot in the bottom that creates bubbles. So I guess you could say I have a cup with etching in it.
A few months ago during a trip to England, we hit a Belgian cafe one night (The Belgian Cafe, ironically, in Eastbourne) and ended up drinking Kwak in the tradtitional Kwak glass/stand. It was a great brew, and I am searching for it in Tulsa. McNellie's has it, but not sure if they serve in the Kwak glass (I suspect not).
If you can find it, you may become a convert. I love Paulaner but I don't think it matches the smaller, rural Ayinger. Best Oktoberfest on the planet. The Jarhundert is about as good as a bright lager as you can find in my opinion.
I'll have to give Fat Tire a shot in the can (what?!) I noticed long ago the biscuit/chocolate notes were absent from the last times I had it in the bottle a few years ago. Between those two characteristics and the perfect ballance, it made it one of my all time favorites. I will always wonder if my clone recipe nailed it or not. Only the garage floor, driveway and the street know know now.
Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't met an Oktoberfest that I haven't liked, so I'm sure Ayinger will not disappoint. Will be on the lookout.
There is only a few places you can find it. Byrons buys most of it up so many places can't get it.
What is the dates that its out? (at work so can't look at website)
