Customer Reviews

First, these glasses are super thin which seems like a bad thing.
Bryan G. Abshear
Another thing I like about these is that there is no advertising, branding or anything else on the glass.

Like most reviews I have read on here, I found out about these glasses from a Spiegelau tasting even at a local beer and wine store.

I consider myself a beer snob. I have several types of glasses I use to drink certain types of beer in. I do also have your typical American pint glasses. I use these for water and other drinks mostly. I also use these when friends come over because I don't want them to break my good glasses.

I went to this event because it was $35 and you got to keep the glasses! I figured......beer, glasses and a good night, why not?!?!

I didn't have very high expectations and figured, glasses are glasses. I have to say, I was wrong!

When you go to a Spiegelau event, you get a "Joker" glass that you will taste out of along side your Spiegelau glasses. You take the beer and pour it into both glasses, then wait. While waiting, you learn the Spiegelau is owned by Riedel. You also learn that Samuel Adams had Spiegelau design their glass for their Utopius beer.

The event really turns into a history and science lesson; however, the reason you wait to drink is so they can prove to you several things. So, what do you learn? First, these glasses are super thin which seems like a bad thing. The reason however; is due to the density of the glass and the quality. The glasses are made of a crystal-glass combination. The density and thickness make it so the glass doesn't absorb carbonation. This keeps you beer from getting warm and flat. This also helps your beer retain head.

Each glass is designed for a certain type of beer. The design is optimized to help accent certain flavors and put the beer on your tongue a certain way.

We just came from a seminar discussing the attributes of these glasses and could not be MORE impressed!! Using a side by side comparison with your standard "pub" glassware, the same beers were tried in each of these glasses. You CAN NOT believe how much better the beers looked, smelled and tasted in these glasses!! They actually kept the beer COLDER due to the fact that they ARE thin, thus not having to cool down a thick, bulky glass. The sound is due to the fact that use a high grade silica that is not only clearer, smoother but also is flexible making it a MUCH more durable piece of stemware. One of the brewers from a leading Midwest brewery was there to present his beers with the glassware and could not have been MORE surprised at how much better his beers tasted in these glasses. In fact, he said his bosses weren't going to be happy with him as he wanted to change all the glassware in their tasting room to THESE glasses. They are made by the same company that makes Riedel glassware and are of the utmost quality. Do not HESTITATE to get these glasses!!

So, I've seen some negativity towards these glasses, mainly due to pricing. These glasses are made by Riedel, the best glass-maker in the world for all liquid intents and purposes. They are AMAZING! I was a non-believer beer-geek/home-brewer until I was invited to a "beer glassware class" put on by these folks and Boulevard Brewing Company from KC. I was blown away by the subtle differences in beer tasting done side-by-side with pint glasses. Seriously, try it for yourself. Pour the same bottle evenly between a pint glass and a Spiegelau glass and try them back-and-forth. Smell them. Sip them. You will be BLOWN AWAY by the distinct differences. I know I was. Give it a go. Worth every single penny. And they are even dishwasher safe! Although, you shouldn't use soap, and just wash them in the bottom rack with nothing else in there... AMAZING GLASSWARE!

These glasses are great glasses! They're thin, yes, but there is a reason for it. The reason is that thinner glass will keep the beer inside the glasses colder longer because the glass takes away less energy than a thick glass. I don't mind the thinness of the glass, just have to be careful when handling.

The styles of glasses are all there. The set includes the simple, basic styles and one should be able to enjoy any style of beers with what's included if they are not too picky. Yes, there are more styles of glassware, but with very subtle differences within these four main styles.

Another thing I like about these is that there is no advertising, branding or anything else on the glass. Great for someone who has many favorite brands of beer or wants a consistent set of glassware without a hodgepodge of different brands, labels, etc.

First off, I do not understand how somebody could give such a negative review when I have had the complete opposite experience.
If you enjoy drinking beer, or want to enjoy drinking beer MORE, these glasses are for you. You get what you pay for, crystal, comfortable, beautiful, and they really do make the beer taste better. More and more people are finding joy in drinking great beer, and if you are thinking about getting these, do it!
These are thin but not fragile, they feel solid but light. The 4 glasses included cover a broad spectrum of beer styles and do it well. My favorite is the stemmed glass, it is just so nice. I'm sure my friends will be these buying soon lol!
Godbless
and cheers!
