Altbier Glass

These glasses are slim and cylindrical with straight vertical sides.

The typical volume is 7, 10, or 14 ounces (200, 300, or 400 milliliters).

As the name suggests this type of glass is strongly identified with the Altbier style. This is a variation on the smaller serving sizes of Northern German beer glasses, at least when compared to the large krugs of Bavaria.
