This upside-down beer glass caught our eye. We wanted a set, but couldn’t justify the expenditure (not to mention, no room in our cabinet).

The double-walled glass keeps your beer colder, for longer.

There’s no condensation on the outside, either.

Plan ahead for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day and take a further look at the glasses.
