Matthew Cummings is raising the bar on raising a glass. He combines Old World tools with an eye for contemporary design to make each pour a refreshing work of art. Handmade in Tennessee, these two shapes are designed to suit specific brews:
Malty Glass: A bubbled form made for malt-rich beers like stouts and porters. Not only is it comfortable in the hand, but when combined with a nitrogenized beer, you can brew up something truly unique: a triple head. For about 30 seconds, the rising bubbles are slowed down by the glass's narrow "waists," creating beautiful, boozy magic.
Volcano Glass: Tailored for aromatic or high ABV beers. Drawing inspiration from brandy snifters and red wine glasses, the design has a wide, stemless bowl and a narrow lip, which helps concentrate the aromatic gasses and enhance the beer's flavor. Matthew also enhances the beauty of the piece by adding molten glass at the bottom of the bowl. Resembling the first splash of a good pour, this artistic flourish looks beautiful on display, and seems to rise from the surface of your beer as you drink.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
