    A Guide to Draught
    Beer Glassware

    Here at Micro Matic, we tend to focus on the technical details of beer: cooling systems, keg couplers, beer lines, etc. All of these things are critical for getting top-quality, great-tasting beer from the keg to the glass...but sometimes, we need to focus on the actual glass! Here’s a quick and handy guide to bar glassware for all the different types of beer that you’re likely to serve.

    Pint Glass

    The Pint Glass

    This classic glass, also called a tumbler, is the most frequently used of all beer glasses. It is appropriate for almost all varieties of beer, and it’s used in pretty much every beer-serving venue around the world.

    Pilsner Glass

    The Pilsner Glass

    Tall, slim, and trumpet-shaped, a pilsner glass is designed to highlight the color and carbonation for which pilsners are known.

    Weizen Glass

    The Weizen Glass

    These tall glasses are designed to show off the beautiful color and aroma of wheat beers and allow enough space for the foamy head.

    Chalice/ Goblet

    The Chalice/Goblet

    These stemmed glasses with wide rims are most appropriate to Trappist beers and beers of similar quality. They maintain the beer head and show off the sparkle of the brew.

    Chalice/ Goblet

    The Tankard

    These classic glasses have handles perfect for raising your glass. They’re generally used for ales and stouts, as well as Oktoberfest beers.

    Though this list is by no means exhaustive, it’s a great beginning for choosing the perfect glassware for your beers on tap! And don’t underrate the importance of “brewery clean” glassware.
