    Use the Right Glass and Sell More Beer

    Craft beers are a perfect option to sell in your restaurant because they often command a higher price than your typical light beers. It’s important to know, though, that craft beers aren’t all lager—there are stouts, porters, hefeweizens, and more, and each one should be served in the proper glass to enhance the flavors. Having the right beer glasses on hand will increase your restaurant’s credibility and encourage customers to try different flavors and styles.
