Always the right beer glass for your catering business

Drinking a Maß at a folk festival or a beer in the classic beer garden: A cool Helles or a refreshing Radler are among the Germans' favorite drinks. So it's no wonder that the classic Willi mug, noble beer tulip, conical Pilsner glass, sturdy Maßkrug, small Kölsch glass or common wheat glass should not be missing in any German pub!

How do different beer glasses differ?

At LUSINI you can find different types of beer glasses. But how do they differ and what are they used for?

  • The Willi mug is double conical in shape. The slightly bulbous beer glass serves as a classic glass for light beer, but innkeepers also serve dark beer, shandy and dark or sour shandy in the Willi mug. The Willi mug is available in different sizes. Usually, when ordering a "Helles" or a "Halbe", it is a half liter of beer.
Did you know?

Why is the Willi mug called Willi mug? It is considered likely that the glass was named after Willy Steinmeier, an employee of Rührglas GmbH Essen. He designed the easy-to-make glass shape in the 1950s.

  • The beer tulip also exists in different sizes. This particular beer glass consists of a round, tapered goblet and a round base with a short stem. Beer tulips concentrate the beer aroma in the upper part, which is why Pils and Kölsch are served in this glass.
  • A pilsner glass has a conical shape, with a larger opening and it tapers to a point at the bottom. A pilsner glass has a capacity of 0.3 liters, as most pilsner bottles also contain 0.3 liters of pilsner.
  • The wheat beer glass is especially popular in Bavaria. People drink wheat beer, Russ or Colaweizen from it. A wheat beer glass holds 0.5 liters. It widens a bit from the base to the top and closes again to the rim. The diameter of the glass opening is nevertheless larger than that of a Pilsner glass: the more carbonated wheat beer thus develops its full flavor.
  • The beer mug is a sturdy one-liter glass in which light beer is served in a beer garden or at a folk festival. The beer stein is the smaller form of the beer mug, which can hold half a liter of liquid

In Bavaria and Swabia, one orders "eine Maß". A Mass originally corresponded to 1.069 liters and became exactly one liter with the metric system. At a folk festival party, the large beer glass comes into its own.

  • A Kölsch glass is also called a Kölsch bar and has a cylinder shape. It is about 150 mm high and has a diameter of 50 mm. It has a capacity of 0.2 liters. As with Pilsner, the narrow opening of this beer glass transports the Kölsch aroma particularly well. In addition, less carbon dioxide escapes.
Did you know?

The shape and small capacity of the Kölsch glass come from the fact that Kölsch does not have a very stable beer foam and a lower CO2 content than other types of beer. Therefore, it quickly becomes stale - the shape of the glass counteracts this!

Beer glasses: How to score points with your guests with a beer tasting

Have you ever thought about organizing a beer tasting in your pub? This involves serving different types of beer in matching beer glasses. Guests learn about the production process and the taste of the beer and clearly perceive the differences. Craft beer varieties are also tasted here, for example, which are brewed by independent breweries and often bring influences of foreign beer varieties.
