Kolsch Glass

This is a tall, slim, cylindrical glass typically about 5 inches tall.

The volume of these glasses is 7 ounces (200 milliliters).

The relatively small volume of this glass encourages frequent refills from the ever-attentive waiters in Cologne.

This glass is directly associated with the Kolsch beer style and can be seen throughout pubs and restaurants in Cologne, Germany. Because of its tall, thin appearance this glass is also called “Stange” which is German for peg or pole.
