Reasons Beyond Glassware Preferences
There can be many reasons for it. Personal preferences aside, there is always room for men in particular to feel that the machismo of dunking beer is lost with this practice. Perhaps, they feel that beer in a bottle is part of the entire experience that you are trying to absorb and rejoice. I have seen some social show-offs hanging on to the bottles just because they want to announce to the world that they are drinking a more sophisticate, pricier type of brew. Still, the answers are not clear.
Is it just about a misplaced aura of ruggedness or owning the beer that makes some people scowl at beer poured in a glass? Am still not sure but the sentiments can be very strong here. While my father prefers a pint glass, I always wanted the bottle!
- More surface area for your nose to feel the aroma. The bottle opens-up the olfactory field
- Pouring beer slowly in glass also creates more foam. Some people insist on this
- Some people like the bigger, thicker grip of a glass. Some, very exacting people
- People might enjoy the entire visual of a beer that becomes easy to view in a glass
- Drinking from the bottle can reduce chances of bigger spillage due to a smaller mouth
- Clarity of beer and the bubble rush are visible only in a glass. Some folks love this!
- Drinking from the bottle makes some people unintentionally gulp more
- Sips from a glass can be more controlled. Give more time to spread each sip on the tongue
