Default Half-yards at Costco!

I had been thinking about trying to find some yard or half-yard glasses for the home-bar, when what should appear before my very eyes? Half-yards at Costco, 2 for $19!

Damn, gotta use the banana...

If you haven't drank out of one before, watch it when you get near the end, it can splash a bit when it hits the "bulb". Enjoy, I hope my Costco follows suit!

Sweet! Ya gotta try Das Boot from Germany too! After watching Beer Fest, I knew I shoulda brought one back.



The importer of these boots was instantly sold out due to the Beer Fest movie.

Beer Boots

I'll check out Costco in Austin. I hope they have some. Thanks for the heads up!

A good friend who was at Oxford told me once that the trick is to twirl the yard while drinking, so the beer is forced up onto the sides of the glass. That empties the bulb without a big splash!

That is the trick, also Das Boots do the same splash in your face so you just turn them.
