GET IT

Sometimes the libation is about more than the spirits inside the glass. Sometimes it's about the glass itself. If you're of that mindset — and as someone who considers herself a cocktail connoisseur, I can attest that the glass does indeed matter — there's a new line of pints and tumblers (and, of course, matching coaster sets) worth checking out. Created by North Drinkware, these "Colorado" glasses feature the Maroon Bells. According to the company, the hand-blown glasses are made in the USA and feature accurate USGS data of the Bells. "In a state with 53 fourteeners and spectacular views throughout, we believed the Maroon Bells stood out as the iconic range for our Colorado Collection," says North Drinkware's Leigh Capozzi, adding that each glass takes two days and over 15 steps to make and are one-of-a-kind. "Not only are we excited to connect the mountain and craft beer communities with Colorado and the Maroon Bells, but this collection marks a significant post Kickstarter milestone. Back in February 2015 when we launched our concept we had just one glass — The Oregon Pint — and we outlined a product roadmap of Washington, California, Vermont and Colorado." Welcome to the Centennial State.
