A lot of people -- at least here in the States -- are splurging for some pretty pricey craft beers these days. So, according to at least one glassware maker, you may as well quaff them from glasses that do them justice.German glassware maker Spiegelau has launched a line of brew specific glasses.
The 17.5-ounce lager glasses (left) start narrow and broaden to a wide mouth. Spiegelau says the shape helps present "the aromatics of this style of beer and showcases the color, clarity and carbonation of good lagers." The other sets include 17.5-ounce wheat beer glasses (center) and 14-ounce stemmed pilsner glasses (right).
Now, at $30 for a set of two, I'm sure that these are perfectly acceptable glasses for sipping beer. But, if you really want to quaff beer, check out these below. Is that Sir Hook on the right?
