In our flower arranging workshops and classes, we tell our students, “A vase can be anything, as long as it’s watertight.” This month, our focus on vase and flower designs is inspired by the different colors of craft beer and the unique shape of beer glasses. Yes, beer glasses.
As connoisseurs of the craft brewery craze close to our home studio in Torrance (local brewers like Absolution, Monkish and Smog City) and during our travels, we’ve taken our floral design inspiration from the different shapes of glasses used for the different types of beer.
According to Beer Advocate, the shape of glassware will impact the head that forms on the beer when you pour it. The foam created by pouring a beer releases the aromas in the beer and can also help create a silky mouth feel. Plus, it looks cool. So, each type of glass is designed to capture the foam so the drinker can enjoy the beer’s flavor better.
