I'm organizing for an upcoming party, One oversight - drink wear - I've got close to 20 pint glasses, so I figured I'd make a move to plastic glasses to cover the 40+ people coming.

One question: 12oz or 16oz? Pros/cons?

Other.

Offer 12oz plastic. And encourage guests to bring their own glass. Those who care will bring glass because it is superior. Those who don't care, won't care.

This may be backwards. 12oz equals faster finishing faster trips to the keg equals faster boob exposure. Or that could be my people I dunno..?

Depends on what kind of party. If you have wild friends, hide the glassware. If it's pretty laid back. Bring out the glassware and encourage guests to bring their favorite glass. 6 pack to the winner with the nicest gl(ass).

+1 to the award! The party is a big brewday - 40+ coming, and probably 20 have experience in brewing. We'll have 7 rigs/set ups brewing any number of batches. It's a laid back day of food and beer with the hope that a few more brewers are born.

Glass. Because using the dishwasher is so difficult.
