I'm bottling beer instead of kegging, so I can give a bottle or two, to my buds. But when they come over, I'd rather have them pour their beer into a real nice, classy beer glass,,,,and not one of those pint glasses. I like the Stella Artrois type glasses, even those pilsner glasses. Are beer glasses like wine glasses, depends on red or white?

Christmas is around the corner and they are gonna be on my list......what say you?

There's a good article here about the varieties of glassware for specific beer styles. I have 3 or 4 different styles that I serve my beer in, but most of the times it's just the standard shaker pint glass. But I have a very large collection of logo glasses from breweries I've visited over the years, so to me each one is different

Lots of options when it comes to nice beer glasses. I have some chalices (like the Stella glasses) that I bought plain at Target or Bed Bath and Beyond. Love the Sam Adams designed glasses. I have a straight sided Spaten logo glass I like. Pilsner and German Wheat beer glasses are nice too.

As CH noted, there are styles of glasses that certain styles of beer are traditionally served in, and reasons for doing so. However, I have never noticed a profound difference as far as flavor or aroma between different glassware. Drink it out of whatever you like, or whatever you think it looks/tastes/smells better in. It's your beer and if you are sharing it and you are pouring it, you get to choose what glass it comes in.

Personally, if I were not very educated in beer (oh wait. I'm not), I'd love to receive a style-appropriate glass to go with my beer, along with a short explanation of why this glass is appropriate for the given style. But that's just the nerd in me. . .

Here's a brief article and photos on some hand-etched beer chalices I did http://www.singingboysbrewing.com/Th...a-beer-chalice

Nonic pint glasses are my standard, but I think my new favorite is a brandy snifter. We use them as our standard at our brew club meetings for both tasting and judging. If you have a World Market near you, they have them pretty cheap and in various sizes.

I saw that bed,bath & beyond has sam adam's style glasses. I like the nonick style glasses myself. I also have some pilsner glasses that're wider at the top I like as well.

I have a pilsner, chalice, beer mug, elcheapo stien, and my personal favortie is my english "no nick" glass [i've heard some call it a propeler glass]. I pain a buck each for all but the stien, it was 10 bucks at a german festival, full of beer.

I've got a Boulevard logo-ed glass that is similar in shape to a brandy snifter, but not as wide as the bottom. Its a great glass for beer tasting, really shows off the head and concentrates the aroma.

I've got a Wee Heavy carbing and am anticipating sitting in a comfortable chair on cold winters' nights, sipping it from a snifter.
