Pub & Pint Glass
Pint glasses compose the most common category of beer glass in the world. In the United States, the leader of the pack is the humble shaker pint, a conical glass originally designed for mixing cocktails with the help of a metal shaker. Its popularity boomed among restaurateurs and barkeeps thanks to its easy stackability, and today it's so ubiquitous that some Americans wouldn't recognize a beer in any other glass. Not so across the pond, where the nonic glass, also called a pub or imperial pint glass, is the king in England, lauded for the bulb near the rim that is said to stir up aromas, helping to enhance the flavor of beer. No matter which type of pint glass you choose, it's sure to complement everything from ales to porters.
