Spiegelau has developed four different beer glass types that support the characteristics of specific beer styles. Each of these glasses is especially thin blown, and has a thin rim that lifts the perception of mouth feel and taste. The beer specific glass shape supports the beer in releasing its full spectrum of flavours and delivers them to nose and mouth.
This Spiegelau tasting kit is an ideal gift and contains 1 each of the Hefeweizen, Lager, IPA and Beer Tulip glasses.
The Beer Tulip not only enhances the hop flavour in Pilsner style beers but also supports the malty character of bolder beers like strong Stouts. The open mouth allows for an intense release of flavours.
Spiegelau, in collaboration with the leading IPA brewers in the United States, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada, has created the new standard for IPA beer glassware. Designed to showcase the complex and alluring aromatic profiles of American "hop-forward" IPA beers, preserve a frothy head, and enhance taste and mouthfeel, Spiegelau's latest design is the go-to vessel for enjoying IPA beers.
The design of this tall glass accentuates the aromas and flavours naturally found in wheat beers. It is large in size, designed to hold volume and a fluffy head.
Shape and volume of the Lager glass resemble those of a traditional pint glass. Being slightly wider at the mouth than at the foot, this glass balances the "hoppy nose".
