The First IPA-Specific Beer Glass

One of the oldest glassmakers of the world, Amberg, Germany-based Spiegelau will be releasing the first IPA-specific beer glass April 2013. A collaboration between Spiegelau, Dogfish Head, and Sierra Nevada, the glass was formulated through extensive taste testing, designs, and re-designs to create a product that captures IPA flavor notes and aromas. According to the company, beer performs better and quite simply tastes better (colder, fizzier, and with more pronounced aromatics) in the proper glassware. Just like with wine, various shapes will complement a brew. As we draw near the weekend and begin to crave a cold one, Dwell sits down with Matt Rutkowski, Vice President of Spiegelau to learn more.

Finds From the LA Modernism Show

The 22nd annual Los Angeles Modernism Show, held May 1–3 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, featured more than 70 exhibitors with mid-century wares trucked in from all over the country. Sponsored in part by the peripatetic über-site 1stdibs.com, the show was mostly hits and a scant few misses, and vendors looked beyond their choice Le Corbusier and Eames gems to bring spectators something a little more unexpected.
