 Shape of Glass Linked to Speed of Alcohol Consumption

The shape of a glass is a crucial factor that decides how quickly one drinks alcohol, according to a new study published in the journal PLoS ONE.

The study was conducted by researchers at University of Bristol who studied around 159 social drinkers between 18 and 40 years of age and who had no history of alcoholism.

The participants were asked to drink lager or a non-alcoholic soft drink from either a straight glass or a curved glass. The researchers found that the drinking time slowed down by almost 60 percent when the participants drank from straight glass.

"People often talk of 'pacing themselves' when drinking alcohol as a means of controlling levels of drunkenness, and I think the important point to take from our research is that the ability to pace effectively may be compromised when drinking from certain types of glasses", lead researcher Dr Angela Attwood said.
