Dual Beer Glass
Dual Beer Glass
This is the first specialty glass released by the Pretentious Beer Glass Company. It is a cylindrical beer glass with two separate chambers inside that combine into one towards the lip. I first began working on this design after having a bartender incorrectly pour a Half and Half, blending the two beers together. This glass is not just the solution to the problem of using a jig to properly pour those types of beers, but it allows you to mix any two beers, even ones that have similar specific gravities. A wonderful secondary benefit to this glass is that you can smell the bouquet of both beers simultaneously, where normally you only smell the beer that settles on top. Dimensions vary more on this glass than the others due to production techniques, and are approximately 6" tall and 3" wide, holding 11-13 oz.
I am constantly trying to improve the quality of my glasses and designs. A recent improvement has occurred with the Dual glasses. The original super twisted divide in the glass gives a greater velocity to one beer over the other and prevented the beers from mixing equally...this trait has bothered me for some time now. Over the last few months I have been working tirelessly to figure out ways to straighten the divide...and that effort has paid off with a better Dual!
***This is the new and improved Dual design!! Responding to your comments, I have made the glass larger to hold more volume. It now comfortably holds 11-13 oz. The glass is more slender and taller than the previous design, which helps keep the two beer separated longer. Check out the last pic for a half drank dual pour (I couldn't waste the beer on photo day!), the beer stayed incredibly unmixed until the end (maybe 5-10% mixing). It is "night and day" more functional than the original design (haha...puns).
Each glass is packaged in a branded gift box with a description card featuring recommended beer pairings and information about each specific design. So if you are buying this as a gift, just put a bow on it!
Hand-washing these glasses is recommended.
A selection of beer types that this glass will highlight, but not limited to:
Half and Half
Black and Tan
Any traditional two beer drink that allows the beer to seperate.
Any delicious two beer combination...try Hefeweizen and Grand Cru, or a Vanilla porter and a Trippel
*Keep in mind, each glass is needed to be hand-blown, and with the nature of handmade products we do a have a 1-2 week processing time. If you're needing the item to be shipped out sooner than that please reach out to us. We'd love to accommodate your glass needs.
