What is a nucleated Beer Can glass? It is a 16 ounce beer glass shaped like a beer can with a delicate pattern of  pits in the bottom that form a point to break C02 out of solution. Without nucleation, a head cannot last for more than 3 or 4 minutes.

 Our William’s Beer Can Glass features a nucleated hop cone pattern etched on its bottom, which keep a steady stream of bubbles rising to the surface from the center of the glass, preserving head. This glass has a tapered top, which helps concentrate hop aromas and protect the head.  Made in U.S.A. by Libbey.

Beer can glass
I bought a couple different glasses from Williams brewing for my home-brew area of my garage. Mostly for the name. 'Cause William is a good name. I love the beer can glass because its different from other glasses. And when friends come by, everybody has a different glass to drink from. Less confusion, better life. Brewdog333

Great glasses and excellent heads!
I bought four of these mostly for the look and shape.  However, once I pour my first home brew in one, it kept a killer head and the bear paw at the bottom gave bubbles something to cling to to keep head nice and fresh.  The cups are awesome, but do leave a little too much room for a 12oz beer.  I drink all of my home brews out of my William's cups!  Buy some, they are great!

I have always prefered to use tall, skinny glasses for my Pilsners and Lagers; I want all to see the color and the head, and very importantly, fill the nose before wetting the mouth.  So I had my doubts about this glass, but am glad I tried it.  I will now get a set -- or two!  The beer can shape is excellent for viewing and quaffing, and much less likely to break than tall ones I use.  And the nucleation spot works well, too.

Will the nucleated can glass fit in a Yeti colster?
Good question, we have not tried this yet. The Nucleated Beer Cans are 3 and 7/8" in diameter.
