Bottle, can or glass

When drinking a beer which is it? Personally I prefer a frosted mug or glass, if not frosted, then a glass or mug, I don't like drinking beer out of a can!

    I mostly drink beer out of a can at home, we recycle the cans, it's worth it between the beer and Coca Cola cans that are gone through.  I do prefer to drink beer out of a bottle but they seem to go down much faster, if I'm out, a frosty mug!

    I only drink beer out of a can if I'm floating the river or camping. Otherwise it's out of a glass.

    How come "tapper hit" isn't an option?
     
    If it's a pricey beer or one I'm trying for the first time it'll almost always be a glass.  Otherwise I generally buy bottles unless cans are a better choice for reasons of storage space, safety, etc.

    OK, how many glass users actually match the size and shape of the glass to the brew being consumed?  I don't...

    I drink beer out of the bottle in my home. At restaurants I mostly go with a draft but if bottled it depends on the type of restaurant and how I feel as to whether I will pour in a glass. Out on the boat I use cans. In the RV I drink out of both cans and bottles. I sucumb to cans in the boat and RV because they are easier to store in limited space and less likely to break. The only can beer I've bought lately is Leinenkugel's Original Lager and occasionally a Surly Bender and widget cans of Guinness or Boddington's Pub Ale. With the Guinness and Boddington's I will always pour it into a proper sized 16 oz. glass.

    I like using the little glasses (like orange juice glasses in diners) regardless of the beer.

    Beer is food that comes in a glass-----and that's
    the only way to drink it. 

    Don't know who said it, don't remember where I
    I read it, but I do believe it and frosted or not
    that's the way I enjoy it. 

    Especially when I hear the words---Drink up, I'm buying. 
    Fine stuff !!!!!!!

    For me, in order of preference, it's:

    1. Frosted mug
    2. Bottle
    3. Glass

    (Notice the choice of a can doesn't appear!)

    Hello All,
    There is something about a frosted mug
    that makes the experience more enjoyable for me.
    If not frosted, always a glass, unless I'm roughing
    it like camping, on a picnic, or at a cookout.
    I hate plastic cups.
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    I always thought frosted mugs were for root beer not beer. I cannot recall ever being served in a bar that way and I definitely would not drink a Guinness that way. Besides I have no room in my freezer to frost a mug.

    I have a 6-pack and 2 mugs in the refrig at all times in case of emergency.  The mugs don't get frosted but they are always cold enough not to warm up the beer.  Lots of bars I have frequented frost their glasses, but it isn't important with Guinness---that  is ambrosia in any glass, or mug, or whatever is handy !!!!!. 

    Just sit at the bar at Rory Dolan's in Yonkers and watch the Guinness pouring out of the tap non stop.  Ah, it's a fine place to wet your whistle, lads.  Drink up, The Ol' Mariner's buying.

    Nothing is better than a well poured Guinness.

    They dictate: 20 oz dry, room temperature, tulip shaped glass.  Not frosted or chilled.

    IMO, frosted glasses -- especially if there is frost on them -- water down the beer.

    I prefer a slightly tulip shaped (like a red wine) glass for the same reasons you use that shape for wine. It collects the bouquet to be savored.

    Frosting a glass can transfer the mineral tase of local water.

    In spite of sounding awfully prissy (I know I do!) I generally drink from a bottle.

    Since i dont drink beers that come in cans---i guess it would be 50/50 with bottles and glasses--or mugs--depending on the beer---i LOVE beer from a keg so that is my usual drink AWAY from home-unless the only thing they have on tap is Bud or Coors--then i take a bottled beer---at home-it is usually Sierra Nevada out of the bottle.

    Gregg and Others.

      If you are ever with me when we get our "first" Tall frosted Mug (24 oz or so) of a brew, you would understand my claim that the frost would not dilute the beer!!! There just isn't time for that !

    My feelings exactly, I like that cold throat burn brought on by a frosty 24 ouncer made to disappear in seconds flat!

    For good beer, proper glassware is a must!  For swill, (Bud-Miller-Coors products), it really doesn't matter.  Pouring that stuff into a glass isn't going to help it any.

    Well to be honest, I drink PBR in the can, and Miller High Life in the can or bottle. I do SOMETIMES pour into a glass, but I like the good old beers of my youth, LOL.

    What is funny to friends is I drink top shelf vodka,  bourbon, and whiskey and still drink my PBR & Miller.

    Absolutely!  The small opening in the can hides the "aroma", and the cold from the ice it was resting in kills the "flavor"!
