Most people dream, at some point or another, of owning their own bar. It is possible to actually get that dream off the ground - simply browse through our barware items range online and take your pick. While doing so, it’s important that you understand a thing or two about barware - specifically, which barware glasses to use in your homegrown service.
A well-made drink deserves an impeccable presentation. The drinkware you choose is going to be something you'll reach for many times a day, a week, a year. And it should give you simple but noticeable pleasure each and every time you do. It should be beautiful to look at, comfortable to hold, a delight to sip from, and a breeze to care for. It should catch the light, play with colour, and be a work of art. And most of all, it should never sit idle in your bar cabinet.
To decide what types of bar glasses you’ll need, think about the beverages you serve when entertaining guests and relaxing at home. Sometimes you’d need a light beer that you want to keep sipping for a good long while - a beer that you just want to drink a lot of - and for those brews, mugs are typically the best option. The handle makes it easy to hold, and also enables you to keep the beer from getting too warm in your hand. There’s also something innately satisfying about a good, sturdy mug.
Pint glasses are always good to have on hand because they are stackable and easy to store, and they work well with most types of beer. Make sure you think about this when picking out pints, and don’t buy anything that feels too flimsy.
Stemmed glasses can make for good options. The wide bowl creates a good head, which enhances those hoppy aromas. Notice that there are different types of stemmed glasses you can buy - tulips and chalices being the most common - so make sure you shop around for something that feels right to you.
You certainly don’t have to run out and buy a bunch of different glasses to enjoy home service—but having a few on hand can enhance your experience. Hopefully, our extensive range will help you in selecting the best ones.
