When youâ€™re selling beer glasses in sets called The Pompous Set or The Snobby Set, itâ€™s just a simple formality to call yourself the Pretentious Beer Glass Company. Coors Light would feel out of place in the presence of such malty arrogance.
Owner, artist, and designer Matthew Cummings explains,
The PBGC originated from a small drinking club at the Mellwood Arts Center in Louisville, KY. Each Friday afternoon, we would take off work early to sit in the courtyard and drink great craft beer. After a couple too many (all good ideas start this way, right?) the club decided that I should make beer glasses for everyone.
Cummings spent months perfecting his designs before launching his product line and is now working 7 days a week to keep up with orders as he still runs his shop largely on his own. He maintains the pretentious tone throughout the site, including recommended beer pairings with each glass. Descriptions about which types of beer each glass can get to â€œreally sing,â€ how they can enhance the â€œaromatic qualities,â€ or ways in which â€œyou can smell the bouquet of both beersâ€ will either leave you feeling right at home or have you reaching for a Bud Light.
See some of Cummingsâ€™ creations below and visit his Etsy page to order one (or a set) for yourselfâ€¦
