A beer-drinkers’ guide to choosing the right glassware

As any beer lover who’s ever been to Belgium will know, the stemmed glass the beer is served in is all part of the experience. However, how many realise that the shape of the glass isn’t just for show, it influences how the beer will taste. In some cases, breweries have been known to design the glass first, and create the beer second!

Glass – the ultimate reuseable material

Glass is definitely one of those special materials, which we not only use on a daily basis, but which we truly connect with. It’s the foremost packaging material that people feel inspired to save, re-use, collect and display. Many people also use glass as an integral part of their home design, and just like the saying “home is where the heart is”, many people feel a real connection with the material.
