We’re Highlighting Historical fiction with Elizabeth Ellen Carter today.
She explains how shape enhances our enjoyment of beer. This is important. After all, as Benjamin Franklin is reputed to have said, “Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
When doing some research on ale glasses for my upcoming title – Live And Let Spy – I discovered that 18th century and early 19th-century beer was often served in shaped glasses – not necessarily tankards.
Lagers contain more carbon dioxide than stouts – which are nitrogen-based – so their bubbles are larger and more likely to resist the downward drag of the liquid. But still, the principle holds true – so that’s something to think about when you raise a glass!
