CHAL­ICE

Food & Drink - - GIFTING MAKE IT CLEAR -

The tra­di­tional glass for Bel­gian ales, the chal­ice is a stemmed bowl of­ten dec­o­rated with a brew­ery’s name or a fancy gold rim. Beers with high al­co­hol lev­els are meant to be sipped not chugged, and the chal­ice (or its sib­ling, the gob­let) is some­times etched in­side to en­cour­age CO2 bub­bles to form, rise up and per­pet­u­ate the head. (Abbey beer glasses, set of 4, $29.00, cock­tailem­po­rium.ca)
