Tips & Tricks: Frosty Mug

Frosty mugs are great for drinking root beer, root beer floats, draft beer... beer in general. There are many ways to frost a mug, but the guide below is for one of the coolest.

Pouring a cold beer into a frosty mug will mask the flavor complexity of the beer. A frosty mug is best for bringing a room temperature beer to the perfect drinking temperature.

What you will need:

  • Glass mug
  • Sink with hot water supply
  • Freezer access

Follow the steps below to make a frosty mug:

  1. Place a clear glass mug in your refrigerator for 5 or 10 minutes. This will help build up more condensation on the surface later.



  2. Run hot water in your sink while the mug is in the fridge. By the time 5 minutes has passed steam should be rising from the sink. To conserve water, you can also heat water on your stove.


  3. Pull the mug from the fridge and hold it in the steam rising from the sink, or hold it over the steam rising from the water on the stove. Just remember, that's boiling water, so you can get burned if you are not careful. Do not hold your hand directly over the steam. You may also want to wear an oven mitten to be safe.




  4. After the outer surface of the mug is covered in condensation, place it into the freezer.



  5. Finally, pull the mug out of the freezer after approximately 20 minutes. The mug will begin frosting up as it contacts the air outside of the freezer.
