The shape of your beer glass affects the speed you drink
A new study shows that drinking from curved glasses causes people to consumer beer faster than from a straight glass.
While it took around seven minutes for people drinking from a curved glass to imbibe their half pint, it took 11 minutes for those drinking from a straight glass.
11 minutes? Do you people even like drinking? Shoenice would have put back a sixer of tall boys by that point, and you’re still sitting there nursing your first. What’s next, you’re going to start sipping Kirin Free?
“Drinking time is slowed by almost 60% when an alcoholic beverage is presented in a straight glass compared with a curved glass,” the report said.
Researchers believe that curved glasses make it harder to pace drinking as judging how much is in the glass becomes more difficult due to its curvy shape.
Yep, that’s right. Some “researcher,” which is Latin for “buzzkill,” just called you an idiot. Apparently none of you know how volume works, so you’re all going to get wasted ridiculously fast if you drink from a tulip glass.
On the brighter side for all of you craft beer drinkers, get pumped for every bar to start having more proper glassware. If there’s one thing your favorite watering hole wants you to do, it’s drink faster. Sure the glasses are a pain to clean, but it’ll be worth it when you’re going through 8.5 beers per hour instead of a measly 5.5.
