People go on and on about how good beer is. I have come to discover that Denver has quite the beer culture. Not only does the Mile High city have the largest brewery but more beer is produced here than any other american city. For me beer has always pretty much just been beer. They all seem to taste the same and seem to sit heavy. This week I have a bachelor party coming to Denver to go around and take a peek at some of the bigger breweries in the area. According to most beer masters water has a crucial role in the way the beer tastes. Also just as true for the different glasses that beer comes in. Sure, there’s a marketing component to beer glassware, its all about presentation right? Wrong, theres a lot more that goes into the glass than just the way it looks. The guys over at Beer Advocates say “As soon as the beer hits the glass, its color, aroma and taste is altered, your eye candy receptors tune in, and your anticipation is tweaked. Hidden nuances, become more pronounced, colors shimmer, and the enjoyment of the beer simply becomes a better, more complete, experience.” So for beer novices such as my self and those more interested in the culture behind beer I spent the morning designing a chart that covers the basics and functions of the most popular kinds of beer glasses.
