The Pint Glass

Until the end of the Victorian era, pub-goers mostly drank out of pewter tankards, which hid the bits of sediment that used to float around in their beer. Then dingy pubs began to be better lit, and modern filtration methods started to produce a clearer drink. As newly drinkers took more notice of the clarity of their pint, the modern beer glass was born. The common pint glasses today are the conical ones, known also as ‘sleevers’, or the more traditional ‘dimple’ mugs.
