FRBC Beer & Glassware Pairing
Wed, 18 January 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST
We all know that beer is better appreciated in glasses, but did you know that different glass shapes can actually change how the beer tastes and smells?
We are bringing you an awesome set of four unique glasses from Spiegelau, which includes a wheat beer, barrel-aged beer, IPA and stout glass. And we will be comparing the various styles in the designated glasses, as well as generic glasses, to see if there really is a difference! And at the end of it, the four beer glasses are yours to keep!
The Spiegelau Craft Beer Glasses have been approved by an expert tasting panel of master brewers and industry professionals. Focusing on beer enjoyment, members of the tasting workshop tested multiple glass shapes to find the best glass for India Pale Ale, American Wheat Beer, Stout and Barrel Aged Beer.
In the experts’ opinion, the custom-shaped glasses successfully deliver the complexity of aromas on the nose while demonstrating the optimum beer texture, balance and flavor intensity on the palate. Staying faithful to the spirit of Bavarian artisan craftsmanship, we have created these unique, functional glasses to bring out the best in complex craft beers. Like our expert tasting panel, we believe that craft beers deserve crafted glasses. Cheers!
For their functional and innovative product design the Spiegelau Craft Beer Glasses have been awarded the renowned Red Dot Award and the IDEA Gold award in 2015.
