A Refined Draft
Craft beers have flavor notes just as complex as fine wines, so why not enjoy all their subtleties with glassware custom made for tasting? Different types of glassware suit different beer styles, but these beer "sommelier" glasses simplify the choice by incorporating multiple features designed to enhance the experience of tasting any variety of beer: the stemmed goblet design helps to prevent unwanted heat transference from your hand to maintain beer at a desirable cellar temperature; the slightly flared goblet edge supports the ideal flow of the beer to the tongue to enhance perception of aromatic components; the inwardly inclined walls of the goblet direct the beer aromas to the edge; the bulge near the bottom of the goblet helps retain the head longer and serves as a gauge for the ideal tasting quantity of 3 – 4 ounces. The piney, citrusy hop bouquet of a great IPA and the fruity, malty melange of a fine Belgian ale will come to life in these strategically detailed glasses. Made in Italy.
