What types of beer glasses are there?
There are many different beer glasses for many different beers. At Glassmania you will find the perfect beer glass for your favourite beer. Depending on the beer, a different glass is needed. Since there are many different craft beers with very different tastes, it is obvious that not all glasses are suitable for all beers. Many glass manufacturers have made it their mission to develop the right glass for every beer style. We’ll explain which types of tulip beer glasses exist and which beer is suitable for them.
Why choose a tulip beer glass?
Tulip beer glasses are very popular. As the name suggests, this glass is shaped like a tulip. Characterised by a large chalice and a narrower bulbous opening. The Tulip beer glass is both elegant and ergonomic. It is similar to a balloon glass but instead of closing, it reopens like a chalice. Its particularly flared rims facilitate the serving of very effervescent beer and allows the formation of a nice head. The curve of the glass also helps to concentrate the aromas and the spout of the glass is also very ergonomic. Each glass has a more or less pronounced tulip shape.
This glass is ideal for beers that require intensive aroma development. The bulbous cup of the glass allows the beer's aromas to develop well and are concentrated by the narrower opening of the glass which intensifies the tasting experience.
It is and remains the most popular beer glass among beer lovers. Not only visually, but also haptically, this glass is convincing. It is also very popular because it is suitable for many different beers.
In our selection of tulip beer glasses, you will find different models of customisable beer glasses, from the most classic to the most original. They all share the flared, rounded shape of the chalice, which offers a large opening and allows the beer to develop its full aroma. Speciality beers, amber beers, dark beers or pale ales are usually served in tulip-shaped beer glasses.
