On the one hand, true. On the other hand, bollocks.

Beer Catcher

To avoid spillages

Pints of beer always spill. Always. Whether it's the head of froth juuuust creeping over the top, or your clumsy friend wobbling while bringing them over to you, or a drunken comrade walking into the table, the top of a freshly poured pint ALWAYS gets spilled. If, perhaps, pint glasses had small saucer-shaped piece of glass at the bottom of them however, not only would they become more stable (To avoid complete knock-overage), they would catch any small spillages, so that once you'd drunk the top centimetre or so, you could retrieve any spillages from the bottom saucer. Then for once you can enjoy ALL of your pint.

       But they won't stack anymore. I like beer, and have extra tolerance for marginal beer ideas, but this is too marginal even for me. I've been drinking beer for 20 years and have only ever spilled a couple of them.

       I just don't think you like me. Maybe bartenders where I live are a bit overeager, my friends and I are overly clumsy, and get drunk more often. I hope someone out there will agree with this. I like Latin, do you?

       One of the not-so-insignificant problems associated with pint glasses that have saucers attached to their bases is that the saucer will drip any condensation or spillage onto your shirtfront every time you quaff from the container. Personally, I prefer the decorum of an absorbent coaster or napkin to the loss of a few extra sips.
