Spiegelau India Pale Ale IPA Crystal Craft Beer Glasses Set (4 pcs)
The Spiegelau IPA glass has a new and unique design, created to support the complex and volatile aromas in IPA style beers.
The glass has been developed in collaboration with two of the leading IPA brewers in the United States, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada.
Achieved through a series of design and tasting workshops in which hundreds of possible designs were considered, the brewers ultimately and unanimously chose, by secret vote, one glass – “number 6“ – from a final lineup of eight custom-made prototypes.
Designed to showcase the complex and alluring aromatic profiles of American “hop-forward” IPA beers, preserve a frothy head, enhance taste and mouth feel, and present a comfortably wide opening for the drinker to savor each beer, Spiegelau’s latest design is the go-to vessel for enjoying IPA.
Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada champion U.S. hop farming. The breweries are donating their portion of the proceeds from this collaboration to benefit advances in hop research.
CRAFT BEER GLASSES – TASTING APPROVED
The Spiegelau Craft Beer Glasses have been approved by an expert tasting panel of master brewers and industry professionals.
Focusing on beer enjoyment, members of the tasting workshop tested multiple glass shapes to find the best glass for:
- India Pale Ale
- Wheat Beer
- Barrel Aged Beer
In the experts’ opinion, the custom-shaped glasses successfully deliver the complexity of aromas on the nose while demonstrating the optimum beer texture, balance and flavor intensity on the palate.
Staying faithful to the spirit of Bavarian artisan craftsmanship, we have created these unique, functional glasses to bring out the best in complex craft beers. Like our expert tasting panel, we believe that craft beers deserve crafted glasses.
