Spiegelau Classic Beer Glass Have Arrived!

Yes, the long awaited introduction of the classic beer glasses by Spiegelau has finally arrived at Hipster Home.  Expanding onto our popular Riedel Crystal stemware, we are now proud to introduce Spiegelau platinum crystal classic beer glasses.  When you first pick up the glass the first thing you'll notice is its light weight due to the lead-free crystal.  I know, I know, you're gonna say that I've been preaching so long about the benefits of crystal in your barware.  And that philosophy still holds true.  But Spiegelau is different due to its platinum process while in its molten state that gives these glasses their strength and clarity.  The magic in these glasses still gets down to basic physics.  The glasses are specifically designed to increase the heavy beer ingredients into the bottom of the glass which narrows at the bottom.  This narrowing of the base increases the glass pressure at the bottom and pushes up the CO2 and unleashing more of the beers specific quality ingredients.  Not to mention it may just be the sexiest beer glasses in the world.  Can you imagine......... a beer glass that's sexy.  It just may be the last beer glass you'll ever own!  Check it  out at

Does each glass correspond to a certain type or style of beer? For example, could you use the same glass for a Belgian White or a Dark Pilsner?

I wouldn't necessarily separate each beer by their color but rather by their ingredients. Obviously a hefeweizen stands alone is best suited for the wheat glass and a lager for the lager glass. The fun part is to try the different beers in their respective glasses and see how they compare to a regular "beer" glass (which is actually just a shaker glass and bars use them because their cheap and indestructible).
