  • Maybe my dumbest question yet

    Try not to laugh, but I'm serious here.

    Would drinking nice beer from a wine glass improve the taste? I'm talking a $20 Riedel here.

    Factor in that it's built similar to a belgian ale glass with a design that's meant to help your beverage breathe, and add in that you're supposed to drink from the stem to avoid your body temp warming your drink.

    Is there a reason why this shouldn't work?

    Even if it does, I don't think I'd recommend trying this in public.

    Hell, I like wine out of a coffee mug. So there is no reason for me to be in this thread.

    Oh ... but the headline is ****ing FUNNY !! :clapper:

      Wine needs to breathe, beer gets stale when it breathes and many "beers" are meant to be served at room temperature not cool and never cold.

          As a beer guy

          A lot of european beer makers actually have their own glass design, I have one of these, but its one of my favorite drinks

          Yes, Yes you can drink out of a wine glass.

          Please read the link http://beeradvocate.com/beer/101/glassware

          "A wine glass for beer!?" Yep, an oversized 22oz wine glass will be most suitable for serving most Belgian Ales. Its size allows for headspace, while the open bowl creates an amazing nose. A lot of smart beer bars are now serving their Belgian Ales in these. It also makes for a great crossover conversational piece. "Is that wine that you're drinking?" And you reply, "No, it's De Ranke XX Bitter from Belgium. Wanna try?"

          Benefits: Replacement for a Tulip or Goblet. Conversational.

                  A lot of nice beers are served in glasses similar to wine glasses, there are even a couple of bars around here on the mountain that will only serve them in the proper glass.

                  I am not knurdy enough to know why this is, but it seems to enhance the experience. Also, I think that it would depend on the beer.



                  **Edit**

                  It seems to be more with beers from Belgium.

                      Actually most bars in denmark(amsterdam) and I am sure this is found in most of europe, serve the beer in the brewerys own glass. The brewery supplys the bar with the glass

                              Gwilks98, the wine glass will work in place of a goblet. You will definitely want to invest in some proper glasses if you drink a lot of handcrafts. To answer your question, yes, it will improve the taste.
