Exceptional glassware is the key to elevating all facets of this delicious subject and The Spiegelau Beer Connoisseur tasting seminar shows you how. Learn firsthand how color, clarity, aroma, temperature and effervescence are all dramatically enhanced with Spiegelau glass versus the standard type of beer glasses we have all become accustomed too.
