Sounds and looks silly to me. Plus, comparing this glass to a pint glass doesnít even make sense to me. A more apples to apples comparison would have been using a beer tulip...

I donít like this idea.

How does thinner glass make it hold the cold better? Wouldnít a thicker glass do that? Or am I not understanding the law of thermodynamics correctly?

The triple-ridged bottom refoams and aerates, so the last gulp is as pleasing as the first.


Sounds like it makes the beer flat faster. Low carb IPAís, yum. Looks like crap too. Gimmick gimmick gimmick.

Isnít glass a good conductor of heat? It has about the same heat capacity as Aluminum, at any rate. I would think it would adversely affect the temperature of beer. If the glass feels cold, itís raising the temperature of the liquid. The thicker the glass, the more transference of heat, I believe.

If you wanted to keep it cool, wouldnít you want a stem on it so you donít have to touch the glass and...you know, warm up the beer? Makes more since than the ribbed for your pleasure thing going on at the base of this thing.

Glass is actually a pretty decent insulator. I just googled thermal conductivity values and see glass is around 1 and pure aluminum is around 200 meaning alumin conducts heat 200 times better than glass. Even if glass was more conductive, a thicker glass would mean it conduct heat slower.

Just get these and a chalice. Then you are covered for every occaision. Not for nothing but people laughed at the sam adams glass which has a unique design that claims to do the same things as this one.
