If you go into most bars and order a beer, chances are very high that you’ll get it in either a Pint Glass, or a Mug. Generally speaking, that’s fine. Not like we’re going to turn the beer away because it’s in the wrong glass, right?
That said, there are some glasses that are designed for different kinds of beers.
So, to help alleviate the confusion about the differences between a Wheat Beer glass and a Pilsner Glass, we’ve created the Drunk Man’s Guide to Beer Glasses.
You may never be confused about beer glasses again!
Oh, and the picture of the funky looking beer glass to the left here is a Kwak glass. They are fun to drink out of, but unfortunately they aren’t dishwasher safe.
How to make a Black Dragon
1 Shot of Scotch Whisky
1 Shot of Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua works well)
1 Shot of Mint Schnapps
This is a layered drink. You can use the back of a spoon to carefully layer the alcohols on top of each other. First you put the Schnapps, then the Kahlua, then finally the Scotch.
I found this pic of an excellent Beer Pong table on this guy’s MySpace Page. While there are some commercially available beer pong tables, you really have to tip your beer to someone who takes the time to produce craftsmanship like this. I do appreciate his dedication.
If you are not familiar with Beer Pong, then never fear. We at the Drunk Man’s Guide have put together a little Beer Pong rules page for you. Now, this is one of those situations where everyone has their own rules, so make sure everyone is playing by the same rules before you start.
We will also be adding more Drinking Games to the Drinking Games section over time, so if you are into drinking games, then be sure to check back often.

We may not always agree on the various concoctions that have come out claiming to be Martinis. It seems sometimes that if you put the concoction in a cocktail glass, all of the sudden it qualifies as a Martini – even if it has shrimp in it!
Now, I’m not going to jump up on a soap box here. I’ve already expressed my “purist” opinions about Martinis on another post. But suffice to say that there are a few Martini recipes that it pays to know if you want to be considered a proper Drunk.
Now, WAIT! Stop right there. Don’t send us email about these recipes! Everyone has their own version, and I recognize that you may be one of those cork dorks who thinks that the Vermouth portion should be measured in atomic units. But that’s not us.

1 Shot of Almond Liqueur

I just realized that we have 10,000 pages of alcohol information on the Drunk Mans Guide, and not one quote from Norm.
We’re going to fix that right now! Following are some great lines from Norm in Cheers:
- Coach: How are you doing, Norm?
Norm: Cut the small talk and get me a beer.
- Woody: How would a beer feel, Mr. Peterson?
Norm: Pretty nervous if I was in the room.
- Woody: Hey, Mr. Peterson, what’s up?
Norm: The warranty on my liver.
- Coach: Beer, Norm?
Norm: I heard of that stuff. Better give me a tall one in case I like it.
- Coach: Can I draw you a beer, Norm?
Norm: No, I know what they look like. Just pour me one.
- Coach: Beer, Norm?
Norm: Does a rag doll have cloth knobs?
- Coach: What would you say to a beer, Normie?
Norm: Daddy wuvs you.
- Woody: Hey, Mr. Peterson, you got room for a beer?
Norm: Nope, but I am willing to add on.
- Sam: What will you have, Norm?
Norm: Well, I’m in a gambling mood, Sammy. I’ll take a glass of whatever comes out of that tap.
Sam: Oh, looks like beer, Norm.
Norm: Call me Mister Lucky.
- What’s doing, Norm?
“Well, science is seeking a cure for thirst. I happen to be the guinea pig.”
- How’s it going, Mr. Peterson?”
I’m sorry to hear that.
“No, I mean pour.”
Talk about Oral History!! Here’s a historical Cocktail you might like to make! It’s the 10th Anniversary of the Famous Blue Dress and Monica, and the Oval Office, and Mr. Bill. To make yourself feel better, make a Lewd Lewinski. The recipe is perfect, really, try it.
Look at this picture. Do you ever feel like this? I mean this guy is the poster child for hangovers. Don’t you wish there was something you could do about it?
Ok, dumb question.
Truth is that while there may not be a silver bullet cure, there are things you can do to lower the chances of getting a hangover, or lessen the severity of a hangover if one becomes inevitable.
That’s why we have developed a page dedicated to helping you avoid the ill effects of hangovers, and perhaps have a better time in the process.
Take a look at our Hangover Cure page.
Then, take a look at some Mixed Drink Recipes:
I noticed that today it snowed in Baghdad for the first time since the Mesopotamians discovered incense. So, for the troops over there in Iraq, have a Siberian Dutchman to keep you warm. If you aren’t in Iraq, you can still have one, but just make sure you are facing Baghdad.
If you are Al Gore, drink two. It’ll help “warm” you up.
How to make a Siberian Dutchman
1 Glass of Coffee
1 Shot of Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua is good)
1 Shot of Chocolate Liqueur
1 Shot Vodka
1 Splash Heavy Cream
Mix ingredients, and pour over ice into highball glass.
