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.Read more ›
The product description states that this is lead-free crystal. Whatever the technical definition of lead-free is the material that comes with the box indicates that this is a mix of crystal and glass. If it is critical to you that these be crystal these may not be for you. A number of disappointed reviewers have indicated that they were surprised at how thin the glasses are. This is an intentional design feature of this set. A bit of research indicates that thin glass is sometimes preferred for holding beer. The argument is that the thin glass chills down more quickly and therefore leaves the beer closer to the original temperature. Given the thermal properties of glass I suspect that it transmits the heat from your hand more readily into the beer and absent more experimentation I doubt that it will keep your cold beer from quickly becoming room temperature. Other reviewers have suggested that the better test of these glasses is to pour some beer into both one of these glasses and one you would have otherwise used then compare the results.
Another reviewer mentions that there is no glass of this set suggested for an IPA (India pale ale a very popular beer style in the United States). I believe this comment is meant tongue-in-cheek.Read more ›

Great quality glasses. They're thin but not too thin that you'd be afraid to break them. I would still be careful with them though. Read morePublished 3 months ago by cloudi

Pricey considering you only get one per type of glass. Quality is good, but I found I use my IPA glasses more than these, but that's just what I prefer to drink.Published 21 months ago by Duy Bui
