Whether you are new to beer or a beer aficionado, the beer goblet is a beautiful piece of servingware that can improve even the simplest beer. The beer goblet has recently become popular again among beer drinkers due to its versatility in design and ability to enhance the flavour of any beer style.
A beer goblet is a beer glass with a wide, bowl-shaped bottom and an average height. The beer goblet offers the beer drinker the ability to savour all of the subtle flavours and aromas that beer has to offer due to it's wide bowl-shaped bottom. Its size allows for more intricate carbonation bubbles, which in turn create more beer foam to enhance the flavour of the beer. A beer goblet is also often used in beer tastings or beer pairing dinners to give the beer a chance to breathe in order to unleash its full aroma. Though the beer goblet is often associated with its country of origin, Belgium, hence the Belgian beer goblet - beer from many different countries can also be enjoyed from the goblet.
Types Of Beer That Suit The Beer Goblet
The beer goblet is commonly used for beer styles with a high carbonation rate and unique flavors, such as Belgian beer. Belgian beer is known for its many beer styles and beer flavors, such as Belgian IPAs, Belgian strong dark ale, & Trappist beers like dubbel, tripel and quadrupel. Belgian beer drinkers prefer a goblet over a beer stein because the beer goblet lets in more aroma, resulting in a better-tasting beer. They also drink several small glasses of beer with each course of their meal rather than one large glass - maybe because their beers are so strong!
Beer goblets can also be used for beer styles such as porter and stout, which offer a darker beer flavor and more creamy beer texture from the beer foam created from the carbonation bubbles in the goblet. You can also use the beer goblet when enjoying an American IPA, English beer and German beer. Basically, the drinking experience of any beer that leans towards the stronger side in both flavour and aroma can be enhanced with the beer goblet.
