Pint glasses are cheap and ubiquitous, but they’re awful for drinking beer. The thick glass gets too warm, there’s not enough room for a good head, and the wide opening means that you can barely detect any of the brew’s carefully crafted aroma. Spiegelau wanted to craft better options.
For their American Wheat Beer project, they enlisted the help of the award-winning Michigan-based Bell's Brewery to create the perfect glass for drinking the popular beer. This glass has it all. The large bowl retains the beer's aromas. The mouth opening evenly distributes beer across the palate, and the open bottom glass base drives beer and foam towards the main bowl after each sip. Ultimately, you're getting the best sipping experience possible.
