You probably don’t need an excuse to go grab a few beers, but here’s a good one.
British brewing company Carling has recently introduced a brand new pint glass designed to remedy a prevalent pub predicament.
The new glass – thinner at the bottom and with vertical grooves in the middle – will make carrying up to four pints back to your table a whole lot easier.
No one wants to make two trips or spill half the beer. These new interlocking glasses make those pitfalls a thing of the past thanks to what can only be assumed was decades of highly scientific research.
When carried together, the cups stay put thanks to the glass groves and even get an assist from the company’s embossed logo.
Miranda Osborne, Brand Director at Carling, said the company hopes the new glasses make trips from the bar a much more comfortable experience.
“We know our customers can feel uncomfortable leaving drinks on the bar because they can’t carry them all, so we wanted to design something that could help alleviate this problem. This is why we created our new easy carry glasses.”
Many companies have released groovy looking glasses over the years, however, Carling claims their new “easy carry” version is “the perfect glass for the perfect pint,”, a claim we plan on investigating post haste.
While you’re probably already rounding up a few buddies to go check it out, you may have to wait a while for the glass to make an appearance here in the US.
However for readers in the UK, the company has said these new glasses will be available soon at several locations including Wetherspoons, Greene Kings and Mitchells & Butlers – honestly, all of which sound made up to me but so do most things from across the pond.
Either way, chips, chips and cheerios and spot on, Carling!
