(KTVI)-In a study conducted by the School of Experimental Psychology at the UK’s University of Bristol, how fast you chug your beer might depend on what kind of glass you’re drinking out of. For example, the study says a straight-sided highball glass, causes people to drink slower, while a curvy pint glass causes us to drink faster.

The study appeared Aug. 17 in the online journal PLoS ONE.
