When a bartender accidentally mixed two different ales in the same glass, Louisville-based glassblower Matthew Cummings was hit with a moment of inspiration. The Dual Beer Glass features two side-by-side chambers that keep ales separated until the drinker takes a sip, mixing to create an exciting new blend of flavors.
The drink that this particular glass allows you to enjoy is more commonly know as a Half and Half, a mix between a pale ale or lager, and a darker beer. Creating the concoction may seem simple, but it involves preventing the two beers from mixing, which means it could be a creation that saves amateur bartenders everywhere.
Being produced under the modest name of The Pretentious Beer Glass Company, Cummings has already sold out of the glasses despite the $35 price tag for these 10-12-ounce containers. There is also a four-pack available for $125, which means you can save some money, and possibly introduce your friends to the world of mixing ales.
Beyond ales, there are plenty of other alcohols that could mix at the point of consumption using these unique glasses, opening up a new world of imbibing possibilities. Make sure to check them out if you want to expand your alcohol horizons, or if you know any local bars and pubs that might benefit from such a convenient creation.
