Say No To Frosted Pint Glasses

Stop cheapening your craft beer.

It is time to have a talk about frosted pint glasses, and what they’re really doing to your beer.

“The second you pour a craft beer into a frosted mug, you have released probably 80% of the carbonation of that beer,” says Richard Easterby, our craft beer expert.

Yes, you read that right.

“All of the flavors that are in there, that acidity that we’re used to… we’re flattening that beer instantly.”

Not only that, we are probably serving them way too cold. Here are some recommended temperatures for your craft beers:

  • IPAs: 48° -50°
  • Stouts: 55°
  • Sours: up to 65°

Now you know! Go forth, and abandon your frosted beer glasses.
