Majestic pieces of work, ranging from delicate and long stemmed (Goblet) to heavy and thick walled (Chalice). The more delicate ones may also have their rims laced with silver or gold, while the heavy boast sculpture-like stems. Some are designed to maintain a 2-centimeter head. This is achieved by scoring the inside bottom of the glass, which creates a CO2 nucleation point, and a stream of eternal bubbles and perfect head retention as a result.
Benefits: Eye candy. Designed to maintain head. Wide-mouthed for deep sips.
ABOUT THE BREWERY
Beer connoisseurs hold the top-fermented, bottle-conditioned brown ales from this brewery in the highest regard – they are peerless. Est. 1230
The Abbey of St-Remy, in the southern part of Belgium, was founded in 1230, and the monks began to brew beer sometime around 1595. The beautiful small brewery in the abbey, Rochefort Trappistes, is one of only eleven Trappist breweries in the world and makes full-bodied, deeply flavored dark ales. They are bottle-conditioned and among the world's most highly-respected beverages.
Only beers made in a Trappist Monastery, under the supervision of the monks, can use the Authentic Trappist Product seal. There are only twelve Trappist breweries in the world.
Never chill your glassware, and decline if served a frosted glass. Why? As the beer hits the frosted glass condensation will occur and dilute your beer, while at the same time alter the serving temperature.
Hand washing glasses is recommended as some dishwashers will leave residues on the glass. If you have a new dishwasher with a sanitation cycle, using that with no soap is a great option as well. Allow your glasses to air dry whenever possible. It is not recommended to hand dry because towels can leave lint which will affect head retention.
