In association with top names in the American craft beer industry, Spiegelau has introduced a new glass especially designed for serving American-style India Pale Ale.
The new glass was designed in partnership with Ken Grossman, founder of Sierra Nevada Brewery and Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.
Calagione says the ridges in the bottom half of the glass help to aerate the beer by creating more friction as the beer glass is tipped for drinking. He explainss that the tall, in-curved top half half of the glass concentrates the aromas and acts as a “olfactory cannon” that shoots the hops up to your nose.
“It’s a noticeable improvement to drink beer out of a glass that really brings that aroma to your nose as you’re drinking,” says Grossman.
Billed as the world’s oldest glassware manufacturer, Spiegelau is a German company producing a wide variety of high quality products for restaurant use.
