The Weissbier


The Glass4ever Weissbier glasses are a classic design from Germany that is usually used to serve Weizenbier or Hefeweizen, in the southern parts of Bavaria usually called Weissbier (“white beer”). A Weissbier is a Bavarian beer in which a significant proportion of malted barley is replaced with malted wheat. By German law, weissbiers brewed in Germany must be top-fermented. Specialized strains of yeast are used which produce overtones of banana and clove as by-products of fermentation. Weissbier is so called because it was, at the time of its inception, paler in colour than Munich brown beer. It is well known throughout Germany, though better known as weizen (“wheat”) outside Bavaria. […]

The good, the bad and the ugly

THE GOOD Hand wash & machine wash using normal or polycarbonate friendly detergents. For heavy soiled glasses, soak in lukewarm water before cleaning. When hand washing, only use a soft sponge and avoid repetitive movements like twisting whilst cleaning.     THE BAD At all cost, avoid scourers or cleaning clothes that are abrasive.

The Decanter


The Glass4ever 1 Liter decanter is actually a carafe that comes with an optional lid. Throughout the history of wine, decanters and carafes  have played a significant role in the serving of wine. The vessels would be filled with wine from amphoras and brought to the table where they could be more easily handled by a single servant. The Ancient Romans pioneered the use of glass as a material. After the fall of the Roman Empire, glass production became scarce causing the majority of decanters to be made of bronze, silver, gold, or earthenware. The Venetians reintroduced glass decanters during the Renaissance period and pioneered the style of a long […]

The Highball


Highball is the name for a family of mixed drinks that are composed of an alcoholic base spirit and a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer. Originally, the most common highball was made with Scotch whisky and carbonated water, which is today called a “Scotch and Soda”. There are many rivals for the fame of mixing the first highball, including the Adams House in Boston. New York barman Patrick Duffy claimed the highball was brought to the U.S. in 1894 from England by actor E. J. Ratcliffe. The Online Etymology Dictionary suggests that the name originated around 1898 and probably derives from ball meaning a “drink of whiskey” and high […]

Washing polycarbonate glasses at the right temperature

Polycarbonate glassware are in general dishwasher safe. But polycarbonate is not just polycarbonate – a variety of qualities exists and some are more resistant to temperature than other. Some poorer polycarbonate qualities will soften at quite low temperatures making them scratch and get cloudy, even crack, when used in industrial dishwashers with a relative high temperature (typically 75 to 85 degrees Celsius).  Using a home use dishwasher or washing by hand using a soft sponge will increase the lifespan of polycarbonate glassware made of poorer and cheaper quality resins. Most materials expand when heated up and will contract when cooling down.  Stacking polycarbonate glassware when they are still warm from […]
