Teku Glass : the best glass for craft beer
Restaurants or bars wishing to excite their customers for new “trade beers” should keep in mind two vital rules in achieving success. The first rule is, the eye desires to be delighted, too and the second rule is, a flawlessly shaped glass that will give the complete range of flavours and aromas need to be unleashed in craft beers. This rules leads to the creation of Teku by Rastal that offers outstanding alternatives for any beer environment and style. Teku glasses promote best head preservation by trapping of aromatics. Its open bowl supports and induces big foamy heads and its size permits for headspace. You can take the glass by the stem to avoid the alteration of the beer’s temperature by your hand.
The creator of Baladin Brewery in Torino Italy, Teo Musso collaborated with Kuaska (Lorenzo Dabove), a sensory analyst to produce the Teku glass (derived from “Teo” and “Kauska”). Musso stated that shape and size of a glass is essential in capturing aromatics and important flavour notes of a beer. Musso made a variety of prototypes and let Kuaska assess them all. The idea was to give the glass with an upward-widening and an unusual bend but still, straight-lined rim part that would synergise with each other, making each beer fully unfolds the uniqueness of aromas.
Important Differentiation and Growth Rates
Teku glass is broadly accepted in the marketplace. It evolves over time. It is now available with decors and logos and with an incorporated beer paint scale.
Because of its popularity, RASTAL’s in-house Design Studio produced four siblings to match the original glass. It was presented at the 2012 Brau Beviale trade fair and designed for top-fermented dark beers, craft wheat beers, and other styles of different scenarios. Because of these variants, RASTAL is continuously structuring the success of Teku glass. You will have a distinctive sensory experience when you paired these glasses with your own beer style.
