I love my local dollar store. I can get weizen glasses, half liter mugs, coca cola glasses, and those awesome Gordon Biersch style glasses.

Also a lot of stores that sell a decent variety of beer will have some glasses. I've found Sam Adams displays set up at a few places with their perfect pints.

I need to have my wife read this, she is always giving me crap for drinking every beer from a glass rather than the bottle.

Drinking from the bottle makes a surprisingly large difference in the taste. I hate how at fancy events they will serve wine in beautiful glasses, and then hand you a 33° bottle wrapped in a napkin.

So anyone want to explain the advantages of a mason jar to me? It seems worse than a shaker glass (and I think those are horrible). I have a lot of willbecher glasses which I think are okay, but I generally prefer stemmed glasses as the give me the option to not warm the liquid with my hand if I choose (something drinkers of other adult beverages figured out long ago). This is especially important if you are pouring a beer at a warmer temperature and not drinking it very fast. If grandma has wine glasses, I would have gone that way.

Ack! Keg cups! I took a growler of Chuckanut Brewery Marzen to Christmas Eve dinner at my aunt's house and keg cups were what she had available for all forms of beverages... I think she just didn't want to do dishes or something. I drank my first beer out of a keg cup, and then couldn't handle it, so scoured the cupboards when she wasn't looking and found suitable beer mug...

My in laws have nasty water so all there glasses have this film on them. It doesn't come off in the beer, but completely ruins the beer experience. I've thought of taking my own glasses, but that would just be insulting/snobbish to great people. Yes, I said it. I have great inlaws.
I will be serving my HB out of keg cups on New Years. To hell with you people if you think I'm washing all those glasses!!

Go out and buy one? Walmart, target, dollar stores, even some grocery stores have them.

There's no ADVANTAGE to a mason jar in this case, it was how to improvise. I mainly use them for.....canning. The OP wanted options, he got options.

Same with "go out and buy X." Okey-dokey, I ordered my wife a nice set of Mikasa Arctic Lights Old Fashioned Glasses for Christmas. Beautiful. Twenty a pop. Different situation, too.

My lack of knowing what a shaker glass is might be an indication that I choose to drink out of mason jars.

What the heck is a shaker glass, anyway?

Also, don't knock it till you've tried it. I've had the same beer in one of those Sam Adams glasses and a mason jar. Little difference other than the price.

Wine glass if you can stand the funny looks.

I hate beer from mason jars.
