Bottle or glass? It’s a conundrum that’s puzzled mankind since Homo Erectus first popped the cap off a cold one. On the one hand, a glass oozes sophistication and class. But a bottle tips a nod to man’s most primal instincts: immediate satisfaction. How on earth does your 21st century drinker manage to satisfy both sides of his thirsty dilemma?
The Hopside Down glass is the kind of receptacle we’ve been waiting for: it’s as unusual as you are. Because inside the stately shape of the classic beer glass lies the top half of a regular beer bottle. Apart, the two beer delivery systems are adequate. Together? They’re unstoppable.
Hand-blown for a high quality finish and standing proud at 7” tall, it’s not just built for looks – though it’ll get plenty of those. The design cunningly uses the airspace between bottle and glass to insulate your brewskis from sweaty mitts, meaning you get a cold one every time you raise the glass to your lips. Or should that be bottle?
It’s the bottle you can drink out of even if the vicar’s round for a spot of tiffin. And it’s the glass you could sink a lager from in the company of the world’s most rugged lumberjacks. Versatile and useful – that’s all a beer drinker needs. Apart from an understanding spouse who’ll wash up the thing once you’re done, of course!
Great gift for any beer drinker.

Stops your drink for getting warm whilst in your hand because the double wall insulates the beer.

Surely not being able to fit a full bottle of beer into a glass designed to look like a bottle of beer is a negative? make the glass bigger please. Andrew, Edinburgh - 14th June 2010
I bought myself one of these glasses and it's great. After I'd gotten some use out of it (about 5 pints worth of use) I accidentally dropped it onto a wooden floor but luckily thanks to the durable Borosilicate glass it's made of it didn't brake or crack and thanks to it being double walled (which acts as insulation) that last mouthful will be just as cold (well almost as cold) as the first.

Its the best thing I have ever bought and an amazing prezzie for my dad for Christmas !!! Milly, Newcastle - 7th December 2009
Really pleased with this gift, I like it even more because it is not made of glass. So you can not smash it and it will last a long time. Susan Hodgson, Wigan - 16th July 2009
