Pint Glass (Becker, Nonic, Tumbler)

Pint GlassSlightly tapered and with a wide mouth, the near cylindrical glass comes in two standard sizes. The 16 ounce pint glass, known as a U.S. Tumbler, is the most common and referred to as the poor man’s pint glass.

The 20 ounce pint glass, or Nonic, has a slight ridge near the top and assists in accommodating beers with large crowning heads.

A Becker is the German equivalent with the exception that it tapers at the top.
