IPA Glass - Box of 4
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 a€" a€˜number 6a€ a€" from a final lineup of eight custom-made prototypes. Designed to showcase the complex and alluring aromatic profiles of American a€oehop-forwarda€ IPA beers, preserve a frothy head, enhance taste and mouth feel, and present a comfortably wide opening for the drinker to savor each beer, Spiegelaua€s latest design is the go-to vessel for enjoying IPA beers. In collaboration with two of the leading IPA brewers in the United States, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada, Spiegelau has created the new standard for IPA beer glassware. Sold as a pair.
|Brand History||The first recorded mention of the Spiegelau factory is in the last will and testament of Erasmus Mospurger, dated 1521. Throughout history, glass has played a major role in shaping lives, propelling economies and advancing civilization. In 1926, owner Fritz Pretzfelder gave the company its current name Kristallglasfabrik Spiegelau GmbH, or The Spiegelau Crystal Glass Factory. During World War II, he fled to England, and returned after the war to take repossession of his company. In 1990 Spiegelau was purchased by Nachtmann Group and then in 2004 Spiegelau was acquired by Riedel Glass Works.|
