Beer is best served in the proper glass!

As you may recall, I have been enjoying the brew making at Deja Brew. While I always have a cold frosted mug (or two) in the freezer to serve beer with, I now find out I need a larger supply of glasses and mugs.
Order a craft beer at the Publick House in Brookline, and you'll get your draft in its own brewery-issued glass.

These beers look and taste different, so they are served in distinctive glasses that enhance the unique taste, aroma, and appearance that a brewer labored to produce.

An amber-brown Doppelbock lager would be poured in a slender Pilsner glass, for example; a cloudy yellow-orange Hefeweizen into a bulbous Weizen glass; a red-brown Belgian Quadrupel ale in a rotund chalice.

Publick House owner David Ciccolo is admittedly "obsessed" with beer glasses and uses more than 150 different Belgian glasses alone.

The article in the Boston Globe on Sunday has additional details. Gee, I don't know that we have enough cupboard space?

The Globe today has a cover story on Boston Beer (maker's of Sam Adams) introducing their new beer glass. Photos of the beer glasses can be found here. (free subscription maybe required to read article and view photos).
