The Kwak glass is one of the most recognizeable shapes the world over. Originally designed as a way to carry beer on a coach ride, the frame it stands in today would be mounted to the carriage and glass made it harder to spill and lose any of the delicious beer. This glass comes in two sizes - a 33 cl which is about 12 oz, or a 75 cl (25 fl ounce). The taller of the two does stand about a foot tall. Want to know more of the story? Read on, or jump in and grab a Kwak glass of your own!

From Bosteels Brewery:

"In Napoleon's time Pauwel Kwak was a brewer and the owner of the 'De Hoorn' inn in Dendermonde. Mail coaches stopped there every day. But at that time coachmen were not allowed to leave their coach and horses in order to have their thirst quenched along with their passengers. As a result, the inventive innkeeper had a special Kwak glass blown that could be hung on the coach. In this way the coachman had his Kwak safely at hand."

Enjoy a Belgian beer in this unique beer glass. The Pauwel Kwak glass comes with a wooden stand. The glass has 'Pauwel Kwak' across the front in white lettering.
