A little over a year ago, renowned glassmaker, Spiegelau, teamed up with the folks at Dogfish Head to create a glass perfectly suited for IPAs. Now the company has worked with Left Hand Brewing Co. and Rogue to craft this glass that does the same for stouts. The claim is that the base drives foam up into the large top part of the glass and the wide opening helps amplify the aroma. The ultra pure quartz material is used to highlight the true color of your beer. Is it necessary? No, of course not, but if you buy different glasses for different beer styles (which we do recommend) it’s worth considering for your boozy barrel-aged buddies.
