How to choose the best beer glasses for your restaurant.

Considering the fact that beer is the most popular alcoholic beverage in the world and the third most popular drink behind water and tea, there’s no need to wonder why you need to know how to choose beer glasses.

There are various types to choose from beer glasses, with various shapes and sizes ranging from beer boots, mugs and cups, to more sophisticated styles like Pilsner glasses. Many bars serve beer from a tap or glass bottles. Beer glasses have been specially designed to make the beer experience more enjoyable. The main types are glasses, mugs, and a whole series of sampler glasses, ideal for serving beer or simply a cup  of beer so that a guest can get a taste before ordering a whole glass.

Glass beer is essential in many bars, especially sports bars, neighborhood bars or “dive” bars, and bars that are known for their selection of brands. Beer is rarely served in a plastic cup, unless you happen to be visiting a fraternity. Beer is often served in a glass of beer or pub, about 16 ounces (almost half a liter). Some are designed to hold a little less than that amount, but usually no more than this.

The beer glasses are strategically shaped to allow the carbonated liquid to breathe, but also to create a suitable head, they pick up the aroma of hop and barley appropriately, and have a professional and tasty appearance at the same time. Beer mugs offer a more full-bodied appearance, with thicker glass edges and often greater capacity than beer glasses. They are often stored in a glass or freezer chiller in order to offer customers the frozen beer they crave. The sampling beer glasses provide the bar with the  way to serve small cups  of different beers for customers undecided about what to order, or to serve a selection of many beers, a common choice of micro breweries and specialty pubs.

All these considerations should always be kept in mind when you go to choose the beer glasses you will have in your bar or restaurant.

How to organize a wine tasting dinner: 4 tips to follow.

Wine is an alcoholic beverage that never goes out of fashion. A wine tasting dinner is a popular and promotional event to try at your restaurant. The Wine Tasting Restaurant offers the opportunity to encourage businesses, especially during traditionally slow seasons. A wine tasting in the restaurant is similar to a home wine tasting, as guests will be sharing and conversing on many different wines.

However, a wine tasting in the restaurant goes further, inviting a sommelier (expert wine) to teach guests about the wines of the evening.

Select a wine list

There are countless types of wine, from classic French or Californian wines to locally produced wines to more exotic, (rare wines). Work with your sales person or a sommelier to help you choose a robust wine menu. A sommelier is a person with experience in wine. Your wine can either put you in touch with a sommelier or do the work yourself. Many wine distributors will help you at every stage of planning a wine tasting, since you buy wine from them directly.

Choose the Complimentary Foods

Once you have decided on a selection of wines that complement each other, select the menu items that will also complete each wine.

Think beyond the old rules such as white wine with chicken and fish and red wine with beef and pork. In this case too, in collaboration with your sommelier, just plan a tasting menu that will help you plan the perfect combination of food and wine.

Invite Guests

Once you have the details of the tasting (date, time, wine list, dinner, price) it’s time to get the word out. Take your social media accounts to promote your wine tasting in your restaurant. Emphasize that space is limited, to encourage early bookings. You can sell tickets or take reservations, or both. It is important to have a certain number of guarantees, so you know how much wine to order and how much food to prepare. Order around 10% more food and wine than you need for last minute bookings.

Educate your staff

If this is your first taste of wine restaurant, it is important to educate your staff on the protocol of the evening. Review the routine step by step, with both servers and kitchen staff. Give everyone a copy of the wine list and menu, so that they know in what order they will have to serve wines and dishes. Ask the staff to read the wines that are served, so that they can answer simple questions for guests, including wine, the types of grapes that have been used, etc …

Escort of Wine Glasses

Lack of wine glasses? Make sure you have enough glasses of wine for the evening. Each person will have a glass, for each wine served. So if you are serving you need to have six glasses for each guest. If you have 50 guests, you will need 300 glasses of wine.
