Recently Spiegelau, a department of Riedel Crystal, has completed precisely that. My buddy, Matt Rutkowski, the Vice President of Spiegelau USA contacted Sam Calagione, founding father of Dogfish Head brewery and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada brewery to layout the suitable beer glass for IPA unique beers.
After several months of samples from Spiegelau and several tastings, wish I had been there, these IPA beer specialists agreed on the sector’s first beer glass designed perfectly for the Craft IPA beers available on the market today.
The effects, a skinny glass made with the Platinum rose gold glass frames manufacturing procedure from Spiegelau, to be able to keep the beer colder than the thick pint glasses of the beyond. Why, because the thick iron oxide glass you are so acquainted with clearly draws temperature from the beer in place of insulating the beer. Also, iron oxide within the normal pint glass is very porous and has first-rate cavities in it that accumulate stays of anything turned into last inside the pint. The iron oxide glass isn’t always clean, look through the pint and you will see a greenish hue, the Spiegeleu glass is perfectly clean. Under an electron microscope, the iron oxide glass indicates pits inside the floor, even as the Platinum glass is clean as, sure glass. To prove this, in a beer glass taste checking out in Miami this spring, Matt poured cold beer in an ordinary pint and in a Spiegelau Craft IPA beer glass. The outcomes had been easy to peer, the condensation at the pint prolonged upwards beyond the level of the beer in the pint glass, proving the glass became absorbing the coldness of the beer, even as the Spiegelau IPA glass handiest had condensation on exactly in which the beer became in the glass.
The Speigelau IPA Craft beer glass has a tapered commencing at the top which not handiest pushes the aromatic additives of the beer to the nostril, however grants the beer to the palate’s sweet center of the tongue. This has a main effect on the flavor of the beer, as we all realize the nose impacts the flavor to your thoughts. You can smell the aromas of the melon, papaya and honey in the IPA beer.
The triple ridged backside of the glass will re-foam and aerate the beer as you drink it. The ridges at the lowest of the glass release the CO2 that floats to the floor so as to provide you with the effervescence when you are taking a sip. Incredible the way this continues the beer clean longer and helps you to enjoy your IPA all of the manner to the bottom of the glass.
This is just the beginning of what we will see in the destiny of beer glasses designed specific for distinctive sorts of beer. The result of primary beer providers working together with the glass producer to offer you an excellent better taste in their craft.
The Spiegelau IPA Craft beer glass is an excellent investment in case you are a actual gourmand of small craft breweries and need to actually decorate you beer consuming experience.
