Georgian ale was significantly stronger than the drink we know and love. There are however a number of beers available on the market that would be a great partner for this antique ale glass as it is ideal for head retention. Alternatively its shape makes it ideal as a quirky champagne flute. With a conical bowl, a multi spiral air twist stem, a conical foot, and a rough snapped pontil mark, this glass is an exceptional example of the Georgian style.
