here is a shot of my go-to




i had one of these but it "went missing" it was a really cool glass to drink out of because it felt like you were still drinking out of a can

I like the Dogfish glasses,,,now to find them without the logo

The New Belgium beer Rangers are cool guys and gals. They always have bottle openers and stickers to hand out, sometimes shirts and hats, and depending on what is going on maybe boxes of glassware.

I have custom made pint glasses my wife got me for a gift. They are engraved with the name I gave my homebrewery. They are very cool.

I have a set of cut glass Pilsners, very curved, tall, narrow and elegant, with heavy and sylishly curved bases (no pedestals). They have nestled many a wonderful brew. I only hope that I can brew a beer worthy of display in vessels such as these. We'll find out in a few weeks, and, if so, pics will come.

I'll go out on a limb and suggest that different shapes result in different experiences. Not sure how much of that is chemically provable, as opposed to mental bias, but hey... it's a great excuse to collect glassware, if that's your thing!

I rather enjoy collecting stuff in general, and I have a sort of goal with respect to beer glasses to get at least six of each major style, in pairs, from various breweries. It's a pretty small collection right now, consisting of two Irish Imperial glasses from each of Deschutes and Widmer Bros., four tulip glasses (two from Elysian and two that are actually marked Tripel Karmeliet), and two mason jars from Lagunitas.

Probably a net loser if you compare dollars spent to drinking experience gained, but hey, it's kinda fun. And you can kind of tell a difference. Sometimes.

You can get 2 Sam Adams glasses for free, you just have to pay the $10 or so in shipping depending on where you live.

I have a bunch of different glass types, but if you are looking for "CLASSY" I would say the best type to use would be a stemmed tulip. They are good glasses in general, plus they look nice and don't get confused with wine glasses.



Personally, though, I'd rather drink everything out of either an imperial pint (or similarly a 16oz pub glass) or my Duvel tulip.

A nice chalice and snifter are always good to have around, too. For those days that you find a really nice barleywine or quad laying around


EDIT: I don't like the 14oz shaker "pint" glasses. First, because they aren't a pint, and second, because they aren't really meant for drinking out of. I still use one here and there, but not my thing. Again, just my 2 cents!

The difference in quality of beer glasses that I've seen is some bring the aroma to your nose better. Nice for hoppy beers an several others with a nice aroma to add to your flavor.
Other than that one that holds the cold well ( frosty mug! ) is good and heavy enough to stand up to your friends having a few too many.
The only other thing I would think about is if it's a look you like.
Lots of the beer glasses on that list are traditional to the style of beer. They don't enhance the beer drinking, but they are associated with a style of beer probably because they are from the region and time where the beer originated.

I mostly use plastic solo cups when I've got buddies over. Easy clean up, they don't break the glasses and they don't break anything with the the glass.
