Top IPA Glass Countdown 

Diving into the world if IPA glasses feels like a treasure hunt with all the choices out there. After all, your IPA beer deserves only the best seat in the house! Thanks to their hoppy character, IPAs pack a uniquely tart taste and a bold, aromatic punch which makes them different from other types of beer. When it comes to glasses, you want to make sure it enhances the hoppy aroma and zesty taste of IPAs for a fuller beer experience in every sip. Back then, it used to be hard to track beer glasses specifically meant for IPAs, but beer lovers now have plenty of options—from sleek, tall, to the curvy and bold ones. With just a few taps and clicks below, looking for the ultimate craft beer glassware is as smooth as drinking your favorite brew.

1. Spiegeleau IPA Beer Glasses

Personalized Spiegelau IPA Glass

One of the first glasses designed specifically for IPAs, this Spiegelau IPA glass will always hold your beer’s aroma, temperature, and head masterfully. This is considered to be the best IPA glass around, so you can see why we made it #1. The consequence, however, is that its ultra-thin glass makes this product more fragile than most. Handling them requires extra bit of care, but it’s worth it for a premium beer experience, so you may as well stock up on a few extra glasses. While the standard pint glass is good enough for most, a glass designed to promote a specific beer’s complex flavor profile is something to appreciate.

2. Hefty IPA Beer Glass Mug

Custom Beer Glass Mug

What glass is best for IPA? You can never go wrong with a beer mug because its large capacity allows you to enjoy plenty of your favorite beer, but the thick glass also helps keep the beer colder for longer than it would in a regular pint or IPA beer glass. The wide rim also produces a thicker head of foam and makes it easy to gulp down your beer instead of taking small sips. Mugs are great for all kinds of beer, but they’re not specifically designed to enhance the flavors like some other IPA glasses.

Reviews Say: “I purchased these for my husband as a birthday gift, and he loved them! Fantastic quality for a great price!” – Katie

The wide opening of this stemless beer tumbler can enhance the aromatics of an IPA allowing you to fully enjoy the beer’s complex profile. A stemless beer glass such as this has a more stable ground and there’s less chance of it tipping over, however, holding it for longer periods can warm up and affect the IPA beer’s optimal temperature for drinking. Overall, this glassware brings a modern twist to beer enjoyment and can double as a versatile glass for other beverages including wine.

Reviews Say: “I bought this monogrammed beer [glass] for my fiance, and he loved it. Personalizing it made it more special. It’s his “go to” glass now.” – Maria

Gunmetal IPA Glass Mug with Pewter Crest

The stainless steel beer mug helps keep your IPA cold naturally so that you can enjoy a refreshing sip every time. Plus, the medieval style is a nod to the classic tankards and steins used in Germany for centuries. Unlike the regular beer mug, this one has a gently tapered shape that guides the hops to your nose as you drink so that you can get the full, flavorful experience. While a great addition to your home bar, this unique mug isn’t the standard IPA beer glass but it can definitely be used for all types of beer as well as IPAs.

6. Handblown Fujiyama Glass by Keita Suzuki

Mt. Fuji Beer Glass

Not necessarily a proper IPA beer glass, but this Fujiyama Glass is incredibly effective at preserving beer’s head. Direct contact with palm causes beer to heat quicker which is not ideal for IPA beers.

Reviews Say: “The head on your beer will mimic the peaks of Mt. Fuji when you fill this glass up.” – Mike

Pilsner glasses are usually used for lighter beers, but this tall and slender glass is a surprisingly wonderful alternative for enjoying your IPA beer’s depth and complexity. For some, the tall and thin frame of the glass may not insulate as well as other beer glasses and might not hug those hoppy aromas as tightly as the usual IPA beer glasses would. It’s still considered as a classic and standout piece of beer glassware that’s able to highlight the hoppy aromas of an IPA beer at the top.
