If you have better suggestions of where to get good affordable glasses, by all means.

Oh, and yes, in my opinion, the glass does make a difference. Never drink from a bottle.
I don't see anything wrong with those, in fact it looks like a set I'd thought about getting. I didn't get the set only because I already have a ton of glasses.

Yes, the shape of a glass has a very significant impact on flavor and aroma. I use a large snifter for most barleywine, tulip or snifter for most stout, pilsner glass for most light lagers and lambics/sour beers, branded glassware (or the most similar shape) for most belgians, etc.
Also, i've found that for small quantities of very strong beers (at least 8.5 percent) the Glencairn Whisky Glass is excellent. It's my preffered glass whenever I have any Samichlaus

I never thought of using the Glencarin for big beers.(awsome whisky glass) I have lill 5oz snifters though. Makes splitting a 120 or some such giant beer in a 12oz bottle very nice between 3-4.

I don't have any snifters that small, but I ought to get some and compare with the Glencairn, but I have a feeling that the longer neck on the Glencairn would do better with the aromas.

I have a 24oz leather jack that keeps my stout at the perfect drinking temp, but I don't recommend it for beer with less body. It just doesn't develop the aroma. What I've been having trouble finding is honest Imperial (20oz) pint glasses. I found two Murphy's Stout Imperials on line, but one of them has since succumbed to the rigors of life. Even finding 16 oz pint glasses can be difficult around here. You will find glasses listed as pints, and find that they only hold 12 - 14 oz. Sacrilege!

I don't need any more pilsners, but I need some pub style or imperials. Can't find them for an affordable price anywhere.

Some information on glass styles.

I was in my local liquor store about a year ago and they had a bunch of the Sam Adams glasses on the counter. They were selling them for $1 each so I bought 10 of them. Sometimes I wish I bought all of them.
