Default If only one beer glass...

I've decided it's time to take the next step in beer glasses. I'm retiring all of my various "pint" glasses with breweries and think it's time that I get a set of glassware that is can be used for beer and nonbeer (think kid's juice)

To be honest, the typical "pint" glass isn't an ideal beer glass. I find it sucks with aroma.


If you were going to outfit your kitchen/bar with one and only one style glassware, what would you choice? The pilsner? British imperial pint? Stange? Snifter?

That Sam Adams glass is my go-to. Problem is, I can't get it without the Sam Adams livery on it, or else I'd have a dozen.

I use stemmed tulip glasses for 12 ozs bottles (think Duvel style glass), and 32 ozs stemmed Pinot glasses for Bombers and the like.

I like imperial pints for general use, but I'd have to have some tulips/snifters on hand as well.

I have some stemless wine glasses that are awesome for beers. They really look/act almost like a tulip.
Kinda like the stuff on here.

Maybe some will shun me and say THEY ARE GODDAMN WINE GLASSES!! =P But I don't care, they work.

A glass that can be used for anything????

I have a half dozen of these among many other glasses, and I reach for them often - this is a nice style and could be used for lots of other beverages too.

I like chalice/goblet/snifter/tulip type glasses when I am assessing a beer.
