Blown Glass, Engraved Glass


This handmade beer glass is designed to highlight hoppy beers, such as IPAs APAs and also light Belgians. The tulip shape is a favorite glass style of high end beer vendors because of its versatility and enhancement of complicated beers. This tulip is engraved with four "fingerprints" on the sides, one for your thumb, and three for your fingers. I make each glass by hand in the hotshop (glass studio) and carve the finger grips on the glass the old fashioned way...lathe cutting. Same process that crystal companies use for their cut crystal glassware, only I leave the glass with a nice satin finish instead of polishing it, which provides better grip. Each glass is 5" tall and 3.5" wide, holding 12 oz of liquid with a 1-2 oz head (remember, dimensions will vary slightly as each glass is made by hand).

Hand-washing these glasses is recommended. *if matching a previous set, please message us*

A selection of beer types that this glass will highlight, but not limited to:
Imperial IPA
Belgian Dark Ale
Belgian IPA
Biere de Garde
Flanders Oud Bruin
Flanders Red Ale

The glass is super heavy (in a good way) and so beautiful. What a great take on a classic shape! I'll definitely order again for my hop head husband! Now for the dry part of the review, when it says two to three weeks it means it! My glass took 3 weeks to make, the item shipped on time though and the seller provided the tracking number via etsy as per their policies. Super happy with this buy.

Amazing. Can I say that again? Amazing. Loved it from first touch but when my husband dropped it on the tile floor last night and it didn't break, not even chip, I was reminded to write feedback for our favorite cup ever in the history of cups. (and i'm a potter) :) Thank you Matthew!

A fabulous glass, oozing with imperfect beauty as only a handmade item could be. It has a good heft to it and the lathed fingerprint marks provide a wonderful texture to the glass when holding it. Thank you for your fantastic craftsmanship!

I haven't seen my husband this happy in ages. He absolutely, without a doubt, 1000% loves his new Pretentious Beer glasses, and was like a kid with a new toy, showing them off to everyone. Our transaction was lovely--great communication, the glasses shipped much sooner than expected, and they arrived packed beautifully and safely. We have the highest regards for your shop and your craftsmanship. Thank you!
