There’s a science behind how much alcohol you drink, and it may have to do with the shape of your glass. ┬áParticipants in a study at the University of Bristol in the U.K. drank beer from a straight-sided glass or a curved “beer flute.” ┬áThose using the curved glass finished beer twice as fast, and consumed more than those using the straight glass.

Researchers speculate drinkers using unconventional glasses find it more difficult to gauge how much they’ve consumed.
