And with specialized Glasses, you should have Branded Coasters.  Maybe even Print the different types of Glasses that you use and the Beers that you have on the Coasters!

There is absolutely a benefit to specialized glasses.  The standard glass for serving beer is a pint glass (also known as a Becker), but other glasses offer advantages for certain kinds of beers.

A pilsner glass, for example, is a good choice for harsh lagers and pilsners.  The glass enhances head retention.  

A snifter is a wide, curved glass with a tapered mouth.  The shape enhances the smell of an ale and helps to agitate the volatiles.  

A tulip has a wide lip and a large body that tapers into the lip.  The shape of the lip helps to capture foamy heads and the body supports volatile agitation.  This is an excellent glass for strong, dark ales.

There are many more styles of glasses that suit other beers (a Weizen glass for wheat beers, for example).  The shape and style of the glass not only has aesthetic benefits, but real flavor and aroma benefits too.  If you are serious about serving quality beer, it is worthwhile to use specialized glasses to suit different kinds of beer.
