Default Sam Adams Beer Glass

Anybody tried the fancy curvy Sam Adams glasses yet? Do they make a difference?

We were given some free at a Sam Adams Brew night.

They are thin compared to other glasses we have received at other brew night.

I do not think they make a difference.

Maybe I bought into the hype but you can definately taste the difference with these glasses. Not as good as say a Boston Lager draft but much better than out of the bottle. That is basically all I drink and I really enjoy these glasses.

One thing.... hand wash, the white lettering tends to peel off after about 3 trips in the dishwasher..... enjoy!

It does seem to make a difference, but a lot of glasses will. The shape of it concentrates the smell of the beer toward your nose. The laser etching keeps bubbles coming up, not sure that makes any difference though.

Be careful with it, its very thin and I have broken a two. Good thing they were all free

I have a few, if they were any thinner the beer would leak out between the molecules.

That's a conclusion I reached a long time ago. Whenever possible, I use a glass. A glass won't necessarily turn bad into good but it does bring out the best in almost any beer.............

I believe the question was, "will a Jim Beam logo-ed shot glass make my Jim Beam taste better".

No, it won't.

I had beer out of one of those glasses, but I was thirsty and didn't take the time to really concentrate on the experience.

The beer inside the glass was not Sam Adams, so I really don't think my experience matters in the grand scheme of things. I vote for pie.
