I’ve noticed recently in Cape Town that people are coming to enjoy their IPA’s, which is great to see because it is one of my favourite style of beers. We’ve reviewed the King’s Blockhouse IPA from Devils Peak Brewery and Valley Brewery have made an IPA for Banana Jam Cafe. And now there is an IPA specific beer glass.
With input from two of the leading IPA brewers in the United States- Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada- Spiegelau has created the new standard for IPA beer glassware. The Spiegelau IPA glass is designed to showcase varying aromatic profiles for the American ‘hop forward’ IPA beer, preserve a frothy head and volatiles and maintain a comfortably wide opening for the drinker to “nose” the beer. This is the go-to vessel for IPA beers!
