When I was a kid, I remember watching my dad’s beer-drinking routine which involved opening a can of whatever macrobrew lager was on sale that week and pouring it into a frosted mug fresh from the freezer.

The only problem is that I had a lot more choices than just Bud or Miller and by drinking them out of the wrong glass, I was doing them a huge disservice.
