Default Beer drinking vessels

Where is the best place to buy quality beer glasses? Not just pints, but glasses appropriate for various styles like Belgians, wheats, etc.

Moderators: I know glasses aren't brewing equipment, so feel free to move this to a different forum if this one isn't appropriate.

I was in a Cost Plus/World Market today and saw they carried glass steins, goblets, oversize wine glasses, weizen glasses, pint glasses, schooners, and then a ton of barware that I didnt know the name of.

craigslist is a great place to go. I've seen assorted barware available for super cheap many many times.

I would check with your local restaurant supply store, that way if they have what you wanted, you could pick it up today.

Thanks for the input and the link. I will do some checking with a local commercial food service equipment dealer and see what they have/can get.

This question is slightly but does the style of glass for a type of beer have more to do with what it was drank from in its origin area than any other particular reason?

I ask because I basically use pints for everything.

Just wondering is all

I actually like ebay for various styles, but I also like having branded glasses.

Good question. (and he did acknowledge that this was not on topic, but I think it might be)

beer glass style is just as important to a beer style, as wine glasses are to various wines.

the correct glass will present the beer to you in a correct way. they insulate the beer in different ways, and allow the carbonation to escape differently.

so if you really want to 'do it right' you'd drink your hefe's out of a wheat glass, kolsch out of those funny straight/narrow glasses, you'd have your tulip glasses to help deliver the bouquet to your nose with a belgian ale...

In fact, the only time I use an imperial pint glass, is for Guinness. I find I prefer a pilsner glass most of the time because I like how it affects carbonation.
