Default Type of glass to drink from

Just wondering what type of glass do you drink your beer from? Myself, I prefer a Mason jar, but that's really the only "glass" that I have, everything else is broken. We do have some kind of inexpensive wine glass that I drink from when I'm feeling snooty.

I use New Belgium glassware. Was fortunate to meet a rep at an event and he gave me an entire case.

I prefer the Sam Adams glass for most beers. Sometimes a goblet or tulip. Rarely a wine glass.

I never chill my beer glasses. Super cold beer is devoid of subtle flavors.

Any glass is better than no glass. A glass half empty is halfway to another beer.

I am one of those goobers that has a good size collection of glassware to choose from. I tend to use the proper glass if I can help it. It is less of a snooty thing but more that I have the glasses, it would be a shame not to use em.

I rotate between pint, tulip, and steins. Depends what I'm drinking and what's clean really.

I use mostly pints because they are so readily available and ive actually sorta started collecting cool ones that I find (I just recently got a pink floyd set wooo). However, I do have a traditional german stein coming my way from my sisters trip over to germany so i'm assuming that will get some use as well.

love the sam adams laser etched glasses my wife got me for my birthday a couple years back. Otherwise, the collection of pints I have get a good workout. Occasionally the stein my boys got me for my wedding reception, but it holds a LOT of beer and most of what I make it way too strong.

waffle mug but I brew mostly english or american ales. I do have a goblet or 2 for saisons and a few hefe glasses. american pints work in a pinch and aquired most of those at bar give aways or purchased at beer tastings.
