Your Guide to Alcohol

Beer Glasses, NOT Beer Goggles!

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.

Martini Recipes

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.

So in the interest of being fair, we have created the Martini Page. A page that contains the top 5 Martini Recipes.

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.
