to list the beer glasses that are currently in our inventory. Since this

Glasses named after their shape:
Kelch cup, goblet, chalice: Has no stem like the Pokal
Krug (or Seidel): what Americans call a mug. The only beer glass with a handle.
Pokal: a stemmed goblet, tulip. Pokal shapes are anything but standard and evidenced by the picture of our "Tulip Collection".
An example of the Pokal is shown in the accompanying photo
Stange (stick): very similar to a pilsner except taller and more slender.
Willibecher (or becher - a cup): what Americans would call a tumbler
Glasses named for the style of beer they are intended to hold:
Alt: a cylindrical glass that usually holds only 0.2-0.3 Liters. A North German style where they drink their beer in smaller portions.
Berliner Kindl: similar to an American schooner. A "fish-bowl" on a stem.
Kölsch: similar to the Altbier glass but of thinner glass, and sometimes taller. Smaller capacity, in the Northern German style.
Pilsner (Pils): A German pilsner glass is the Pokal. An American pilsner glass is an inverted cone on a short pedestal.
Weissbier (also called weizenbier): Large, (usually 0.5 L) inverted cone without a pedestal.
It should be understood that many new styles of glasses, or hybrids,
have evolved over the years and there is not always agreement over what
style name should be applied to a particular glass.
