Pilsener

These glasses come in a range of styles, from a tapered hourglass shape to tall, elegant profiles with very thin glass walls.

Typical volumes for this type of glass range from 8-12 ounces (237-355 milliters).

The goal of this glass is to exhibit the brilliant color and head of a well-made lager.

The 19th century invention of the Pilsener beer style, with its appealing golden appearance, luckily coincided with the increasing availability of glassware to display it properly.
