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!
