    Super serious question.

    You order another beer, and the tarbender uses the same glass.

    Yea or neigh?

    It's pretty common, Dirt Farmer. Actually the norm in many places. As long as the beer doesn't change, I'm cool with it. In fact, I prefer it.

    Same beer keep it, especially if the new glass is fresh out of a nice hot Hobart washer. (This has happened to me)

    I gotta say that I prefer my next beer in a clean, chilled glass. When I'm eating food, especially greasy food, I don't enjoy seeing it on the next glass.

    Let me elaborate: I think the same glass practice has been/is the norm in most "regular" bars. Now micro pubs or brew pubs that value the beer-sperience will use the fresh glass. As a long-time bartender, I think using a fresh glass each time is a waste of the bartender's limited time if the place is busy, and it requires the waste of more energy and resources by using the soap and machine more than necessary. As a drinker, I like the lack of fuss.

    However, for those drinking expensive/rare beers, I totally understand.

    Oh hell no! I don't even use the same glass at home for the second half of one of my 22oz bottles I've popped. It has to be clean and CHILLED, like fresh out of the freezer cold.

    I like to brew my own beer so all that work tastes better out of a new fresh glass!

    The barkeeps around here won't use the same glass unless you ask them to and depending on the pubs policies they still might not. At home I use the same glass all day long. This is assuming I'm drinking the same beer. I really like good coffee (and I think I make some pretty good stuff at home) but I use the same coffee mug all morning.

    At a beer or wine festival/tasting you rinse and re-use so whats the problem at the pub or at home.

    I don't do chilled glasses and have asked bartenders to use a non-chilled glass if I'm drinking something I would want closer to cellar temperature. I don't refrigerate most of my beer so I don't want it in an ice cold glass. Then again, if the pubs cleaned their tap lines more often, folks would be able to taste the beer they were poured instead of the last three beers that went through those lines.

    If you are drinking the same beer, reuse the glass. If not, a new glass is nice, but not totally necessary, unless you are switching from a Stout to a Pilsner.

    Chilled glasses are for Bud/Miller/Coors products. The chill keeps the beer cold, which numbs your tastebuds to the pain they are about to experience. Any beer that is worth tasting should be served between 40-55ļF depending on style.

    wow, a Homebrewer who does not know that frozen glasses are not the proper way to serve beer... interesting.



    For me, i will use the same glass at home, however I typically rinse out the dregs of the last beer before moving on to the next. If it is the same beer i might not rinse.

    Any self respecting bar will provide a new fresh glass with each beer. More importantly any good beer bar will have proper glassware for each beer served.

    Super serious question.

    Same glass is good for me.
    I have sent back beers served in chilled glasses. Major beer serving faux pa.

    Besides the chilled glass numbing taste buds, the ice build up on the side will water down beer, weakening body, mouthfeel, foam head and flavor.

    Thatís why I order it by the pitcher. I can reuse the same glass over and over until they insist Iíve had plenty to drink already, oh and by the way the door is over there.

    this is my beer mug. it belongs to me. it lives behind the bar, and i prefer them to use the same one every time. I get 4 extra ounces per pour.

    I don't care if they pour a different beer into the same glass. As long as I don't get somebody else's used glass, I'm fine... or a clean one with lipstick still on it. That's just nasty.

    Wow, I've hardly ever seen a bartender use the same glass, unless I asked them to. I'm okay with that, as long as I'm not drastically mixing styles.
    I might have seen it in Britain...

    Chilled glasses- Blechhh! That's a throwback to the days when 'Murican beer was light light light yellow and had to be served ice cold, lest the drinker realize what complete crap it was. My dad used to keep a mug in the freezer for my visits for years, until it finally sunk in that I never EVER wanted to use his chilled mug for anything.
