The following (in no particular order) are the different varieties of beer glasses. American pint, imperial pint, pilsner, tulip or Belgian, thistle, goblet or chalice, IPA, stout, weizen, stange, teku stemmed, beer mug, and finally, the glass beer boot.
In many cases, different types are designed to make more pronounced or otherwise enhance the aromatic compounds inherent to different kinds of beer.
The two most popular pint glasses are the American and English. The American pint glass (also known as a "shaker glass") holds 16 ounces and is tapered with straight sides—creating a simple yet cylindrical glass that's wide at the base and narrows toward the top.
As with wine, different glasses bring out and highlight different flavors in a beer.
