How to serve your favorite brew

romero & romero

Most of us drink beer straight out of the can or bottle, but if you’ve been looking to expand your palate and knowledge about this age-old popular beverage, that comes from a variety of brewing methods and ingredients with expansive flavor profiles, here are some basics on the brews and suggested glasses in which to serve them. 
(LEFT TO RIGHT)

 

Tulip

The Vessel The stem allows drinkers to hold the beer without warming it, while the mouthe design promotes a hefty head, trapping flavor within the beer

The Beer Ale, Pale Ale, Strong Ale, IPA, Lambic, Gueuze

Parish Brewing’s Pale Ale Parish Envie is brewed with loads of citrusy American hops to create an assertive, yet balanced American pale ale. Sweet caramel malts mesh with a dominant hop taste and aroma.
 

Weizen

The Vessel “Weizen” means “wheat” in German, so as the name suggests, the Weizen glass is designed for drinking wheat beers. A thick head really increases the flavor of a wheat beer, holding in all those aromas to complement its light, refreshing taste.

The Beer Weizen, Heffeweizen, Witbier, Weizenbock, Gozeeizen

Parish Brewing’s Canebrake, a wheat-style brew, highlights hints of sugarcane with notes of honey, spice, and citrus on the finish. Fun fact: Canebrake was the first commercial beer in the world brewed with locally made Steen’s sugarcane syrup.
 

Nonic

The Vessel Also known as the English pub glass, this receptacle has an easy-grip design. The wide mouth allows for the proper amount of head to form.

The Beer  Lager, Ale, IPA, Stout, Porter

NOLA Brewing’s Irish Channel Stout is an American style stout that has sweet malt flavors of caramel and chocolate, complemented by a crisp bitterness produced by roasted barley and hops.
 

Chalice

The Vessel Scores in the bottom of the glass allow continual carbonation. The opening assists in analyzing the overall flavor profile and aromas.

The Beer Belgian IPA, Belgian Strong Dark Ale, Dubbel, Tripel, Quadrupel, Bock, Dopplebock

Abita’s Andygator is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Andygator is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma.
 

Pilsner

The Vessel The height of the glass allows the beer to show of its color and carbonation. The wider top opening will trap the aroma of the beer.

The Beer Pilsner, Lager, Bock, Dopplebock, Hellesbock

Covington Brewhouse’s Pontchartrain Pilsner is a blend of German Perle and Czech Saaz hops which gives it a mellow, herbal hop aroma.
 



HOW TO POUR
 


1. Tilt a clean glass to a 45° angle and pour down the side of the glass.


 


2. When half way full, slowly start to tilt the glass to a 90° angle.


 


3. Gradually increase the distance between the bottle and the glass to ensure a good head on the beer. Serve and enjoy.
