Default What are you drinking your cider out of?

Just curious what everyone is using to enjoy their cider with? Pint, stein, weizen? Just curious.

For ciders like blackthorn, woodchuck and the like I go with a pint.

For Carb'd apfelwein I go with a .25L wit glass, or a collins glass.

A mason jar. Cider just seems more authentic when drinking it out of a mason jar.

Oh, and a collins glass is NOT a stange. A stange is the specific glass used for serving authentic Kolsch. It is taller and thinner than a collins glass, and the traditional size is 200mL, or 6.75oz (though you will see larger stange glasses, that is an American influence). Collins glasses usually hold 8oz.

Here's a source for stange glasses:

Out of the bottle, or a glass with a handle.

I was so tempted to respond with a mason jar or the bottle but others beat me to it.
Usually I'm basic enough to just use a pint glass.
