In the German palatinate common name (also Dubbeschoppe, Schoppenglas, wine bar) for a glass to enjoy spritzer or wine. As a rule, it has a volume of one Schoppens of 0.5 liters, but also 0.25 or one liter. The glass widens downwards and upwards and has small indentations on the outside, in which the fingertips find support and thus the grip is increased. According to tradition, the Dubbeglas was invented by butchers from the town of Bad Dürkheim, because at slaughtering parties the slate glasses that were often smooth in the Palatinate slid too easily out of the greasy hand. From this function or constitution, it is similar to the Mainzer pole in the Pfalz. No recesses, but surveys have the same purpose in Hesse as ribbed designated glass, as well as the age-old knobs glass,

Glasses: Ribbed, Dubbeglas, Mainzer rod

From the indentations of Dubbeglases also derives the name, because "Dubbe" means "swab". This condition is important because in the Palatinate a glass of old custom is passed on in a round of wine and could easily slip out of the hand when handed over to the next person. This sociable mood illustrates the beautiful saying: "De Dorscht, which makes fun really fun, so e Palatine Dubbeglas!" On the big wine festival "Dürkheimer sausage market" is a "Dubbeglas-Orden" with annually changing motto marketed.
