Do you have a favorite beer glass? If you are really into good beer, you realize that owning several different styles of beer glasses is a must. Some might think that a glass is a glass, but over in countries such as Belgium and Germany, there's a beer glass for every different brand of beer. If you don't drink your beer from a glass, you're missing out on how it really tastes.
On the topic, wash your good glasses in hot water by hand. This will preserve the logos on the outside better. Also, don't use any soaps. Why? Ever see tons of bubbles sticking to the sides of your glass when you pour a beer into it? That's the residue that's left behind from the soaps, greases, oils, etc.
