Weissbier glasses tower over everything else on the table with their long slender bodies and large bulbous heads. The design allows for the highly carbonated German wheat beers to develop their billowing heads of white foam. The glasses typically hold about a half liter of beer even allowing for the the head and the narrow neck still allows for easy one-handed drinking.

What it's best for: The weissebier glass is most famous for its use with hazy weissebiers but is equally appropriate for filtered and clear krystallweizen and darker dunkelweizen.
