Default Logo Glass Nights at your local pub?

It's a weekly tradition for me and my buddies to go to the campus bars for Logo Glass Nights... here at University of Illinois there are a few bars that do it which usually means the potential to get 2 or 3 new glasses each week. We've become addicted to expanding our collection over the past couple semesters (I think I'm in the lead with around 40).

Anyone else like to collect these? I've spent lots of time with students and beer drinkers that live all over the country, and it seems like not many people have even heard of the concept.

Even better, has anyone designed a logo glass for their homebrew???

We're always on the look out for the freebies. Our favorite beer bar has been having a different brewery in the last couple of Mondays.

I have about 3 dozen or so from a local place that does it every Tuesday.

Glad to be here... I've decided to pay more attention in EamusCatuli's garage so one day soon I can start my own op . I'm glad we found each other on HBT, hope to see you again soon.

I don't have that Killians glass and I'm almost positive Matt doesn't either... I hate to hear that a glass came and went without me getting my hands on one oh well. It's Wednesday = Logo Glass Night at Legend's

Do they still have those cheap long islands at Legend's on Mondays? I think that's the last time I had one was there while I was in school, about 5 years ago.

I don't think Legend's has any long island specials these days. The Canopy has $2 long islands on Tuesdays... Often leads to long nights

Don't have and Logo Glass nights around here that I know of, but I'm a huge collector of pint glasses. We have a whole cabinet full of them and yes, we use them as or normal glasswear.
