Now that craft beer has gone mainstream, pint glasses are finally getting an aesthetic upgrade. Minnesota startup Northern Glasses offers pint glasses printed with sleek, modern designs for just about every occasion and personal aesthetic. Designs span the humorous (“Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beer Holder”) to the inspirational (“Work to Live, Don’t Live to Work”), and offer opportunities to display Minnesota pride, such as a set of a dozen glasses by Minneapolis artist Adam Turman, each designed to represent a month of the year. With every pint glass purchased, the company donates a gallon of clean water to a developing country. •
