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 a hold and thus the grip is increased. According to tradition, the Dubbeglas was invented by butchers from the city of Bad Dürkheim, because during slaughter festivals the stick glasses, which were often smooth in the Palatinate, slipped too easily out of the greasy hand. Viewed from this function or nature, it is similar to the Mainz pole in the Pfalz. No deepening, but surveys have the same purpose in Hessen as ribbed labeled glass, as well as the ancient knobs glass,

The name derives from the indentations of the dubbeglass, because "Dubbe" means "swab". This quality is important because in the Palatinate such a glass is passed on in a round of wine according to old custom and could easily slip out of hand when handed over to the next person. This convivial mood is illustrated by the beautiful saying: "De Dorscht, it is really fun, hops up on the Palatinate Dubbeglas!" At the big wine festival "Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt" a "Dubbeglas Medal" with a different motto is marketed. See also under wine vessels and wine glasses and also Weingenuss and drinking culture,
