News: A new glass line is introduced

J.M. Hirsch, the food editor for the Associated Press introduces us to the a new beer glass line that was introduced this week.


If you’re going to splurge for those pricey craft beers, you might as well quaff them from glasses that do them justice.

And German glassware maker Spiegelau recently launched a line of brew-specific glasses to help. The company’s Beer Classics Collection offers beautiful glasses designed to enhance three common styles of beer.

The company’s 17-ounce lager glasses, for example, start narrow and broaden to a wide mouth. Spiegelau says the shape helps present “the aromatics of this style of beer and showcases the color, clarity and carbonation of good lagers.”

The other sets include 14-ounce stemmed pilsner glasses and 17-ounce wheat beer glasses. And while the glasses feel light and delicate, all are dishwasher safe.

The Spiegelau’s Beer Classics glasses are available as sets of two at major retailers and online for $29.90
