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 “really sing,” how they can enhance the “aromatic qualities,” or ways in which “you can smell the bouquet of both beers” will either leave you feeling right at home or have you reaching for a Bud Light.
