The Spiegelau IPA beer glasses hands down revolutionised the IPA glass.
Their unique design, created to support the complex and volatile aromas in IPA style beers allows the beer to be both more expressive and leads to the beer retaining its aromatics for longer.
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.
Designed to showcase the complex and alluring aromatic profiles of American â€œhop-forwardâ€ 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.
What do the experts say?
"If you're a fan and regular drinker of these craft beer styles, the glasses really do make a difference. In several categories (IPA, American wheat, and barrel aged), the Spiegelau Craft Beer Glasses bested all other competition." Inverse.com.
"This glass gives you a better drinking experience. My personal view is that the ribbed stem causes the beer to fizz up every time you lift it to drink, putting a new head on top of the remaining beer that acts like a sealant, keeping it fresher and more aromatic for longer."
