Women Want Beer in “Stylish” Glasses?

Well, we knew gendered norms of appearance could do a lot of harm– but who know it was as bad as this? Apparently an absence of stylish glasses is keeping women from drinking good beer! According to the survey cited, 37% of women say they would drink real ale if it was served in more stylish glasses.  (I’m not sure whether the figure includes those like me who would drink it from just about anything.)  More seriously, if the survey is reliable (and I’m a little dubious, I must say), it’s a nice illustration of how many things are affected by gender, often without our being conscious of it.
