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 stouts, they teamed up with the dark malt experts at Left Hand and Rogue Ales to figure out the very best way to enjoy all their roasty notes. The result is this unique shape that the brewers unanimously chose as their favorite from a huge lineup of options, with a unique shape that lets all of the good stout aromas jump out of the glass each time you take a sip.
