it could have a beer level gauge, handy for telling how much beer you have under that pesky foam, a temp gauge, to let you know if you are in imminent danger of drinking warm beer, and other things. i think a built in lighter would also be helpful...perhaps also a sensor to tell if your mouth is under the rim, so you dont pour beer down your shirt...

       "let you know if you are in imminent danger of drinking warm beer" - should never get that close - if it's that advanced, it should keep the beer cool for you.   

       And I don't entirely understand why you want to set fire to your hair.

       Proper beer *is* warm (well, room temperature) and it doesn't have foam. You can tell how much is in your mug by how far you have to tip it before some comes out.

       ...making sure that you pre-position your open mouth below lowest point of rim...

       Beer is usually served in transparent containers made out of what we call 'glass', which enables you to see how thick the foam is.

       Does this mug look like a Gnome? +

       How hard can you possibly make drinking beer?

       [bobenhotep] Why don't you just coat the inside with a very thin layer of "bean-o". It dissolves any foam hindering the actual quantity of beer.   

       [angel] you must be familiar with true german beer. I like mine dark enoug to not see through it.

       [destructionism]: No, but i'm familiar with true British beer.

       [angel]: what kind of beer is warm AND doesn't have foam? I thought these two characteristics were mutually exclusive.

       [xrayTed]: (linky)
[Rods]:The version I heard is that beer should be drunk at the temperature at which it is fermented (but may be stored at a lower one). For British beer, which traditionally uses a top-fermenting yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), this is room temperature. Lager (by which I mean proper lager - German-style beer which is stored after fermentation) is brewed using Saccharomyces Carlsbergensis, a bottom-fermenting yeast, which prefers low temperatures.

       we could add a tv screen in the bottom so you wouldnt miss anything while your taking a drink...

       I dunno, it all sounds a bit Elvish to me.
