My wife and I collect a pint glass from each brewery we visit. We've got a lot of standard American pints, but if they have an imperial nonick pint that's the one I get and that's the one that gets the most use. I've also got a really nice crystal Deschutes tulip I use for Belgians, barleywines, and imperial stouts.

Ahhh seriously I worked at a bar in college I have a freezer full of glassware, I use it because I've had it for years and it was free.

Frozen glasses? Don't like tasting that delicious beer your worked so hard to make eh?

My least favorite glasses in my collection are the ones like the OP's picture on the right. Partly due to not taking them into consider when building my tap box. They're too tall for my taps, but also because they don't fit very well in the cupboards. I prefer a Tulip, my TapRoom galsses, a Sam Adams, and then an American Pint.

Mostly these

Love them! the tulip holds the aromas so nicely, and the laser etched hop at the bottom keeps the head alive! I also have a smaller tulip shaped Kaiser beir glass for 12 oz beers.

Take away my man card, but collecting cool glassware is a big part of the fun in this hobby.

I have my options, and chose based on beer style or volume that the glass holds. I also have a separate cupboard filled with pint glasses, and a shelf next to my main kegerator stocked with pint glasses.

We have a whole display cabinet full of beer glasses we have acquired, mostly through pint nights (buy the beer, keep the glass). We also have half a kitchen cabinet full of more glasses. We are quickly running out of room but can't help ourselves. We are going to have to buy a second display cabinet just to have room for the future. Most are pint glasses but we have all kinds of goblets, snifters, chalices, etc. but we normally use the pint glasses.
