Serve beer in the right glass with a Holmegaard beer glass
Create a classic Danish lunch table with Holmegaard beer glasses. Serve the beer in the correct beer glasses alongside traditional Danish hot dishes. Holmegaard has a large selection of beer glasses, so there's bound to a be a style to suit your lunch table. You can find everything from the large beer glasses from the Premium series to the tall and slender beer glasses from the No. 5 series to the small and decorative beer glasses from the Charlotte Amalie series. All Holmegaard beer glasses are mouth-blown and will therefore have small air bubbles.
Mouth-blown and machine-blown glass
Holmegaard produces both mouth-blown and machine-blown glass using the latest and most advanced production methods. Whether it’s mouth-blown or machine-made glass, Holmegaard always represents high quality and elegant design. Each piece of mouth-blown glass is unique and handmade by the glassblower, who carefully blows the right amount of air through the narrow pipe. Air bubbles in the glass are therefore inevitable and are part of the charm of mouth-blown glass.
The mouth-blown glass from Holmegaard is recognised by the Nordic Ecolabel, which is also found on the beautiful beer glasses.
The stemmed beer glasses from the Holmegaard's Idéelles series are particularly stylish on the Danish lunch table. The designer behind the series is Per Lütken, one of Holmegaard’s most advanced glassblowers, and he has designed the fine hand-blown glass series from 1978. His love of sweeping, feminine shapes is evident in the glass series. The soft, curved rim of the beer glass makes drinking comfortable and the balanced weight of the glass makes it nice to hold. The series contains virtually all types of glasses such as glasses for various wines, water, champagne, cognac and schnapps – with and without stems.
Take good care of your glasses
To take the best care of your beer glasses, wash them gently to prevent them from breaking. In fact, all glasses - also wine glasses - can be put in the dishwasher, which is probably good news for everyone who has one. The decisive factor for the best possible dishwashing is actually the temperature at which they are washed. Please take care not to wash your glasses at too high a temperature. Preferably use the dishwasher’s glass programme, if it has one. In addition, make sure that the dishwasher is filled with rinse aid and salt and that it is correctly adjusted to the water hardness. Finally, proper drying is also essential to achieve a good result without any deposits of limescale on the glasses.
Now your beer glasses are ready to be placed in the kitchen cupboard or display cabinet. Opinions may vary as to how you should store your wine glasses in your cupboards, but the correct answer is that they should stand on their feet – just like you put them on the dinner table. They should not be upside down, which many people think is the correct way, but there is no need to turn the glass upside down. Especially if they are already in a cupboard that protects against dust. The downside of placing beer glasses upside down is that they absorb the smell of the cabinet shelves. This odour can be more or less unpleasant depending on the surface. Your beer glasses fare best with air around them.
