As I am REALLY starting to get into beers now, I am trying to get all the proper glass ware for each style. I am suprised HBT does not have a glassware forum, post pictures of rare glasses you have and contain glass guides/pouring guides? Is there a good list of what sort of glasses people should be using for all types of beer?

The link above appears broken.

I really like the proper glassware as well, although my collection is quite small. My favorite right now is an english half yard that I have. I just like to watch the bubbles rise all the way to the top. Plus, getting a second glass was always too difficult anyways...

I do like the idea, however, of a thread of people showing off their cool glassware. I've got some relatively cool glasses (relative to the normal population, not you beer geeks ) and I wouldn't mind showing them off.

We used to have a couple really awesome threads that stayed up for months...I'm trying to find them.

Looks like it might just be a google chrome issue. My bad.

BeerAdvocate is having some DNS issues right now. For everyone that can't get to that link, just wait a while and it should come back eventually.

FWIW, Target has some decent beer glasses. A lot of them are Guinness but just the other day I bought two .33L Stella Artois stemmed glasses (actually crystal) there. I needed something a little smaller for the big Belgians.

The Sam Adams glasses are good imo.

IMO, a pint/half-liter is a MUCH better serving size for most beers than 12 oz. (ESPECIALLY if you're serving from kegs). My favorite are the half-liter Weizen glasses like this (with etching on bottom for rising bubbles/infinite head):
