Plastic cups are fine for serving drinks at a fraternity party but most people serving guests from a home bar want something with a little more class. For them, monogrammed beer glasses add just the right touch. Options include stylish mugs, steins and pilsner glasses personalized with the bartender’s initials in a decorative typeface.
Glassware suitable for use at a bar is usually made of crystal or heavy glass. Glass is more affordable but lacks the elegance of fine crystal. Regardless of material, consumers can choose from many different styles, sizes and shapes to suit any home bartender’s needs.
A standard pint glass is one of the most popular shapes. This glass has a wide mouth and sides that angle down toward the base. Tulip shaped styles feature sides that curve inwards and then flare out slightly to the base.
A stein is the same diameter from top to bottom and has a handle on one side. Steins typically hold 16 or 25 ounces, except for the Frankfort-style stein. This option has a capacity of 22 ounces and is slimmer.
Retailers offer consumers a variety of font styles and sizes for the monogram. Gaelic or Old English styles are good choices for any home pub with a rustic feel. Something more contemporary goes well with a modern bar decorated in chrome and neon lights.
Some consumers choose a standard monogram with three initials. The standard format is to place the initial for the last name in a bigger size in between the first and middle name initials. Consumers may opt for one or two initials engraved on each glass.
Most home bartenders will love the opportunity to serve their guests beverages in classy monogrammed beer glasses. They make practical but thoughtful housewarming or wedding gifts for any beer enthusiast. Personalized glassware makes a statement in anyone’s home bar or man cave.
