I forgot to add that glassware for beer styles is really only indecitive of the regions glass making technology at the time. Tankard chalice or nonic are kind of the standard types. Get chalices if you want to be fancy, nonics if you want a pub feel, and tankards if you want a dive bar feel.
I like nonic [or no nick] glasses for the aorma they hold and ability to give a good head [hehehe].
Some vendors can even custom print what you wat on the glas for 3-4 usd a glass. That may be the route to go if you want something semi-custom-classy. Much better than having a mixed batch of pints from the "you keep the glass"specails from your local pub.
This show a few of the popular styles and names, I kind of poo-poo on the diferent style glass for different type idea, mainly because I'm cheap and having 30+ glasses and using on dosnt appeal to me
