Ever confuse a stange with a Willi Becher, or wonder why the Belgian’s have a different glass for every beer? Have you ever pondered the technology behind the newfangled Spiegelau’s craft beer glasses? If so, this is the episode for you. We are joined by Land Grant brewer Justin Reik and Canadian connoisseur Chris Mercerhill for an informative, irreverent journey through the land of beer glassware. Couched in a gameshow format each of us brings a mystery beer to the show that highlights the characteristics of a specific glass. If that isn’t enough we each pick a song that sonically exemplifies our chosen beer-glass pairing. Sit back for an extended romp through the world of glassware, with frequent tangents into the realms of music, science and travel. If you want to see photos and descriptions of the glasses discussed check out the accompanying blog post – Beer Glassware Illustrated.
