Default Bubbles in your Glass

Beer in my glass,

i have these Miller Glasses that I got free from Woodmans which have a miller lite etching on the bottom.
These glasses create tons of CO2 bubbles in the beer.

All the other regular glasses i have don't create any bubbles.

Same Keg, same time poured.

Is it the etching that creates the bubbles?
If so, what would those glasses be called besides "Glasses with Etching"?

You're exactly right. It is the etching.
It's usually done by laser, so you'd probably call them "Glasses with Laser Etching"

How do you clean your beer glasses? All my beer gets bubbles coming up from the bottom, and what your describing sounds normal.

They actually etch the bottom of the glass(inside) causing a constant and increased release of carbonation. It's a way to fake head retension, I guess.

The Sam Adams glasses have the etching too. Would like to add one to my collection at some point. I don't see how it fakes anything though. I mean it doesn't create any co2 themselves. It's coming from the beer. Sounds like it's enhancing the experience, I would say that is a good thing.

Another Thing....what if i brought glasses to a etching place.....if i put my name on the inside by etching, would that kind of show up at the head of my beer? Such as putting a big G on the bottom, would it show it as foam on the top?

Or i could get the normal people that come over's name etched, so we would know who's beer is who's by just looking at the head.
