It seems to me that there are just as many types of Belgian beer glasses as there are Belgian beers. I sat down to write this post I thought I bought a Belgian tulip I was psyched about, and thought I could write a quite post about a few of the styles of glasses I had seen over the years. I was wrong.
About 6 months ago I bought the Libbey craft beer glass set after I moved into my new house. I didn’t have any beer glasses at all except a pint glass I bought at Save Mart, and I wanted to get some glasses that were appropriate for a wider range of styles of beer. Libbey’s 6 piece set seemed a perfect fit!
As part of my specialty beer glassware review series, I bought the official stout glass that Rogue and Left Hand did with Spiegelau recently. I was really excited to try this glass because dark beers have always been a favorite of mine, and I had such a good experience with the IPA glass that I wanted to try this one out!
Since I’ve been stocking my cabinets with all the great beer glasses I can find, I couldn’t resist buying the enigmatic and enchanting TeKu. Advertised as the best beer glass in the world, I had to try it. It was a bit on the pricey side, but for something that you can use over and over again, it was an easy buy decision for me.
Since I’ve finished a lot of indoor projects on my new house and my kitchen is pretty much done, I’ve been buying up specialty beer glasses. One of these that I was especially excited to get a old of was the IPA glass that Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada created with Spiegelau. Let’s see if it’s all it’s cracked up to be.
