I use different Spiegelau stemware and I am generally satisfied. Spiegelau products are cheaper than Riedel but you get about the same quality. I looked for good quality beer glasses and there are few producers who do those. The Beer Classic glasses are thin which may make them fragile but thin glass itself seems very good for beer also.For some reason I wasn't able to buy those glasses online from Europe. Local importer din't want to import those for some other reason. Overstock was the only online shop in US which agreed to ship glasses to Estonia. Strange world we are living in - purchasing of a simple product is made so difficult.
