Libbey Foodservice Now Offers the Ultimate Way to Serve and Savor an IPA

Available for the first time to the U.S. foodservice industry, Libbey® is now offering the ultimate way to serve and savor an India Pale Ale – the Spiegelau IPA glass. The signature ridges and stunning contours were insightfully designed to release and optimize the aromas of IPAs. The bowl concentrates and intensifies the aromas for a robust, multi-sensory tasting experience.

“The right glass makes all the difference in serving up the tantalizing experience today's beer connoisseurs are seeking," said Susan J. Dountas, director, foodservice marketing for Libbey. "Libbey is proud to distribute this product to our customers to help satisfy these discerning guests."

Developed in collaboration with two of America's leading IPA brewers to create the perfect glass for IPA's definitive, hop-forward aromatics, this one remarkable glass was ultimately and unanimously selected from hundreds of designs.

“The days of serving all beer in a standard pint glass are over,” said Matthew Rutkowski, vice president of sales, Spiegelau USA. “Restaurateurs and bar/pub owners can demonstrate their understanding of and passion for craft beer by serving IPAs in the glass that was created to offer the finest IPA experience.”
