Re the comment about drinking from glass being more suitable - The advent of 'Pilsner' beers - Ie, those brewed in the town of Pilsen, West Bohemia, also promoted the rise of Bohemian Crystal as drinking vessels. The bright clear beers were best displayed in bright clear vessels. Or was it the other way round? Too many Czech lagers have dimmed the brain! As Manitas says - with stouts, porters, weiss beers and cloudy brews it does not need to be seen.
