Why do we say a pint?
When we talk about a pint, a beer glass always comes to mind. A pint is a unit of volume measurement for liquids. In fact, a pint is two pints.
In fact, a pint of beer in France does not equal the same thing elsewhere! You can remember that a pint of beer in France is 50 cl, in Belgium it is 25 cl and in the UK it is 56.8 cl.
A pint is the old Anglo-American system of measurement, which is now very common. This is especially the case in Ireland and the UK. If you say "pint" in Ireland or Great Britain, it means exactly 0.5683 litres. In America, however, the situation is different. In the United States, a US pint is 0.4732 litres. Each country may have its own measurements, so be sure to check their volume.
With pint glasses, however, there is no exact measurement for serving. The pouring ends at the rim of the glass.
Which pint glass should I use?
They are essentially small pilsner-type beer glasses. This beer glass is distinguished by its long, straight sides. With this beer glass you can see the bubbles of the beer and how they slide from the bottom to the rim of the glass. These beer glasses have no calibration marks and are filled to the brim. Therefore, this glass is more suitable for beers with low carbon dioxide content.
In our Glassmania catalogue you will find various alternatives for beer glasses. The Nonic family of glasses, the traditional pint of English pubs, is easily the best-seller thanks to its simple but singular curve, which will allow you to serve all types of beers to your guests or customers. The name comes from the English "No Nick" for "no cracks". They are easy to handle and less sticky if you stack them.
The Sestrière beer glass, with its straight shape, comes from Irish pubs. It is a versatile pint glass and is generally used for white, amber or red beers. Its shape allows it to create a nice thick head.
In our online glass configurator, you can customise each glass in our catalogue and add a seal or fill line, which is very important if you sell beer by the glass in your bar or restaurant. The CE seal is a marking indicating the volume of drink contained in a glass.
What beer should be served in a pint of beer?
Beer pints are used to serve a wide range of beers as they are probably the most common glass in bars. Generally, low carbon dioxide beers such as Pale Ales, India Pale Ales, Porter or Stout are served.
Which glass for an IPA beer?
The most suitable glass for IPA beers is probably the glass named after it. The 54cl IPA beer glass is a top-of-the-range glass with an incredible finesse. Perfect for optimal tasting of IPA beers. IPA is very trendy and can be considered as the queen of craft beers, thanks to its variety in taste and colour, from golden to coppery.
Which glass for a stout?
Pint glasses are ideal to enjoy a stout beer. Dark in colour, stout originally meant "strong" and is a beer made from roasted malts.
