Default beer glassware

I'm looking for some help. I'm trying to give some family members a good holiday gift idea. What I'm looking for is a set of different style of beer glassware. As I am focusing on this hobby more, I would appreciate a nice set of glassware that should be used for the appropriate beers I brew. Does anyone know if there is a set like this available? I know these could be pieced together but I'm trying to make it easy on my family. Thanks-b.

I was a bit confused by your post, but I think that you are looking for a set of glasses sold in a set where each glass in the set is for a different style of beer.

While I don't have a lot to base my opinion on, I am doubtful that you will find that.

Most glass sets come in a minimum of 2. It is assumed that you will be sharing a drink with someone.

One idea is to go to one of your better liquor stores and check out the holiday gift packs. Many varieties of beers are conviently packaged together with the proper drinking glasses during the Christmas season.

You will probabley find all of the glasses that you like, and can hand this list to your family. As a bonus, the glasses will conveniently come with beer!

The only bad thing about the above is, from what I've seen, the glasses usually come with whatever brand of beer's name it is printed all over it. Fine if you're only drinking that brew but when I'm drinking mine own I'd rather have a 'print-less' glass, but I can be pedantic like that.

Try some resturant/bar/catering stores, esp. online ones. I've seen a few where you can buy single glasses, wouldn't really be that hard for someone to piece together a few different glasses in an online store.

But having the different glasses sold together in a set would be cool. A six pack of glasses with maybe a pair of pint glasses, pilsner glasses and chalice or something

If you are really put off by the branded beer glass, the paint can be easily removed by soaking it in a solution of ??(oxyclean)??

There are plenty of online sources for non-branded beer glassware. My real question would be, which styles of beer do you want glasses for? British styles are served in an imperial pint, West coast IPA is served in a standard pint, Belgians have their own glassware, ect...

I'd say you should determine what styles you want glasses for and then ask for sets of those glass styles.

The below is what I am looking to get. Yes, it does come with print, and there is only one glass per style, but I am pretty much the only one who drinks my homebrew, and I could care less about the prints on them:

I was pretty impressed with Pubglasses.com when I ordered from them. Here is a link to their specialty glasses

This one is probably a better link - all the unmarked glasses. I hate logos on my glasses

N00b asks: What would be the name/style associated with the "Silly" tulip glass at top left of page..? A Belgian style, perhaps?
