In collaboration with Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head it seems.


The rest of their glasses are pretty awesome (and actually really DO improve the beer!), looking forward to trying this one out.

I had a look at ordering one from Sierra Nevada. $106 shipping for 1 glass to Australia. Not even joking. Try it yourself.

I'll stick with the Samuel Adams glasses, which I think are extraordinary, and you can get them for cheap as chips off eBay.

fantastic glasses, i have the tall pilsner ones and the wheat, but i must say they are quite delicate and fragile

Postage from DFH is about $45 but for something like this you would probably be better off getting a group buy and going through a post forwarding website. I would definitely go post forwarding for just one glad though.

I might see what kind of prices I'd looking at.

I'd be up for a couple as well if you can find a good deal.

I can't find SA glasses for less than $30 each (posted) on ebay, what did you pay ?

Sounds good. Will be looking forward to seeing how you go.

As for me, the cheapest so far for one glass posted is going to be $36.94. That's to a regional SA area as well. Quite a big difference from the previously mentioned prices but still high. Not sure how much postage for multiple items will be but I'll check that out next.

I just emailed speigelau's Australian distributer asking if there are plans to distribute them here.

Maybe we can hope that one of our craft beer outlets like Slowbeer or Purvis Cellars ( for instance, in Victoria ) will put in a bulk order !

'Cos I really want a few :)

That's good to hear! Will be interesting to see how the prices compare to the american sites.

If anyone does decide that they can't wait another 4 months, be sure to post photos and details about it ;) (I'll definitely do it if I can't control myself).

Thanks for looking into it Liam_snorkel!
