The so-called Dubbeglas is a term in the Pfalz. How else should you drink half a ‘schoppen’? Many people in Germany have probably never heard of a Dubbeglas. Beyond the boarders they are probably not known at all.Yet, the first glass was already in the stratosphere. Most will ask themselves now: “What are you talking about?”

For this reason, we start all over again: Every region in Germany has its own dialect and traditions. As a rule, they consist of certain customs, drinks and dishes. In Cologne Kölsch is spoken and in Bavaria a wheat beer is traditionally drunk. Over the generations, the vessels in which different drinks are served have also changed until the perfect vessel for the drink has finally been found.

A top-fermented Kölsch has the characteristic of quickly becoming stale. To delay this process, it is served in long sticks. These sticks are usually available in 0.2 l or 0.3 l versions. Accordingly, the Kölsch is quickly empty. A measure that is already known outside Germany is a whole litre of wheat beer.

Traditional Pfälzer Schoppen

Of course, beer is also a popular drink in Rhineland-Palatinate. Traditionally, another drink is yet more popular. This is the white wine spritzer.

A white wine spritzer should always be served in a Dubbeglass. This is a glass that is equipped with different dents from top to bottom. These dents ensure that the glass lies much safer in the hand. This is especially advantageous if the hands are greasy or damp. The type of glass makes particularly great sense if the glasses are often passed around at a traditional wine festival. In a Dubbeglas exactly one litre of the delicious white wine spritzer fits. The unit of measurement is called half a bottle in the Palatinate. A bottle is accordingly one litre. As early as 2016, the first Dubbeglas was launched into space by a balloon. If you’re interested in purchasing such a glass you should check out this page: www.pfaelzisch.com.
