  What it's like to fly on the new 'millennial' airline that serves craft beer, signature cocktails, and organic coffee -- and has flights from €49 Air France launched a "boutique" airline last summer targeted at a slightly younger clientele (18 to 35) - and "Joon" certainly has a number of millennial-friendly perks, including its selection of booze. Passengers can enjoy organic food and drinks, high quality alcoholic beverages - including signature cocktails designed by Paris' Experimental Cocktail Club and craft beer - as well as a comprehensive digital entertainment offering.It's supposedly a chilled affair on-board, too. Joon's cabin crew wear more relaxed, modern uniforms than traditional airlines, and can even opt to wear trainers.

I am with you, nothing but a good old American style pint glass for this beer drinker . Because according to me, chilled Beer should be served in proper glasses . So it can make the celebration My folks always drank beer from a pilsner glass and it turned a Bud into a fine glass of the best beer .

Let's see if you drink a glass of water in between every glass of beer . Heck I drink lots of beer . Never had an issue as long as I was NOT driving. Beer Trader. Technically, the more alcohol you consume, the better it is for your heart!

Remember when you learned to ride a bike? There was life before the bike. And now there’s life after the bike. Things changed, and you’d never want to go back. But that was (I think) a long time ago. Let’s have another one of those moments...with beer. Let’s stop drinking beer straight from the bottle or can and pour it into the world’s best beer glass, the Teku glass. It will change your beer drinking life for the better.

Whoa, whoa. Is this another beer nerd preaching some useless, pretentious garbage? Sounds annoying. It’s not! I may be a beer nerd, but I promise pouring beer into a glass is good for everyone! It lets you really get to know the beer you’re drinking, from the color to the smell to the carbonation level. Drinking beer from a can is like talking to someone through a window. Drinking from a glass, especially a Teku glass, is like opening the door and having the conversation face to face. Here’s why.

You’ll Never Guess Why Beer Bottles Are Brown

  You’ll Never Guess Why Beer Bottles Are Brown <p>Find out why beer bottles are usually brown, and why some beer experts swear by drinking brews stored in cans.</p>Since the explosion of the craft beer market, you can now walk into any store that sells brews and have dozens of options for what to drink. Whether you reach for a dark lager or a hoppy IPA, the one thing all beer drinkers are bound to notice is that most brews come in brown bottles.

Applicants who have an advanced degree in American business, brewing, food or a cultural specialization in history are “encouraged to apply,” according to the job posting. Getting paid to drink beer is better than any job that any of us have right now.

There may be a few lagers on tap as well , but lots of pubs have a greater variety of lagers in bottles. If you want a cold beer , you'll have to order lager. If you can't afford to take a turn buying drinks for everyone in this way, then at least offer to pay for your own drink when someone else buys a round.

First, just look at it. The Teku glass, made in Germany by Rastal, is a beautiful object, and if my dusty graphic design degree taught me anything, it’s that perfect pieces of design are as pretty as they are functional. The Teku fits that bill, angular and modern in a world of traditional tulip glasses and shaker pints. It feels fresh and new, without running you a million bucks (around $60 for a set of six).

So how does the design affect the taste? You know, from a technical perspective...not solely because it looks cool. We’ll start with the angular body. A good beer glass should trap the aroma of the beer from escaping. To do this, the glass needs a body with a top that’s smaller than the base, so the aroma doesn’t leave your glass all at once. (This same logic applies to wine glasses.) You want the aroma to sit at the top of the glass, so when you tilt that IPA toward your mouth, waves of tropical fruit and pine needles and dank marijuana hit your nose. To really know what a beer is all about, you have to be able to smell it. And the Teku gives you some top notch smellage.

As if you need another reason to raise a glass , National Drink Beer Day is September 28. But those who prefer Cabernets to IPAs may not find the occasion one for celebration. If that’s you, or someone you know, hear me out.

A variety of beer glass styles enhances the drinking experience, allowing hidden nuances to come forward. We don’t all have to be a beer geek aficionados who ’s Cicerone-certified to enjoy a great beer the right way. Here to help is a beer drinker ’s guide to the appropriate glassware to fully enjoy

Then there’s the stem, the thing that makes it look kind of like a wine glass. The stem gives your hand a place to grip the glass without making contact with the body. When your hand touches the body, it warms whatever’s on the other side. Duh.

And there’s that little lip, curving outward from the top of the glass. What’s the deal? Why is it there? We already have two lips on our faces. Do we need this one? No, we don’t need it. But we definitely want it. Beer rolls right off the lip of this glass, in a malty waterfall that can only be called buttery smooth. It’s less like drinking and more like letting the beer go where it was naturally meant to go...into your mouth.

Now, some people reading this might be thinking But wait, Alex, don’t different beers taste better in different glasses? Are you saying that every beer in the world tastes its best in the Teku glass? No. I am not saying that. A Guinness still tastes great in that big Guinness glass. BUT the Teku is the best overall option for an at-home beer glass. It shines brightest with hoppy ales like IPAs and pale ales, as well as fruited sours and Belgian ales like saisons, table beers, or lambics, and it certainly won’t be bad for any. You can drink all beers from a Teku.

  Donald Trump’s Face Joins the Politiki Presidential Mug Lineup Donald Trump’s Face Joins the Politiki Presidential Mug LineupPop-ups seem to be everywhere in D.C. lately. Here, Eater will highlight some of the best pop-up options coming to town over the next month or so, and periodically update this guide when old ones disappear and new ones emerge. This curated guide includes everything from longer-term pop-ups to one-time events. It de-emphasizes residencies lasting more than a couple of months, or events labeled pop-ups that don’t quite fit the format.

Likewise, if you’re a beer drinker , there are certain beers you have to drink . A lot of breweries are making similar beers these days, but Haymarket’s IPAs rise above thanks to the Make friends with someone who has a bottle, because it isn’t scheduled to be released again until 2016.—Don Ayres.

I have tried all different types, with that said this is the kind of drinker I am. I like Smirnoff Ice the most, but I like a lot of mixed drinks , anything to give Sierra Nevada Summerfest might be a good one. Also drink your beer really cold until you acquire the taste. Ice it down and serve it in a chilled glass .

So go do that. Smell the beer. Look at the sublime lines of the glass. Drink sip after beautiful sip of your tasty brew. And think about how you’ve grown, because a short time ago, you were drinking beer from something else. But once you’ve entered life with the Teku glass, it‘s nearly impossible to go back.

A Beer From the Middle Ages Is Making a Serious Comeback .
An old German law almost killed it, but now gruit ale is getting the attention it deserves.Gruit beer is any beer that features botanicals in place of hops. The ingredients that give the drink its distinctive sweet, aromatic taste can be as familiar as ginger and lavender or as exotic as mugwort and seabuckthorn. The herbs play the role of hops by both adding complex flavors and creating an inhospitable environment for harmful microbes.
