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

I know places like bed & bath have sets of craft beer glasses - a set of 6 different styles. Kind of a bummer not to have more than 1 of each, but I don't mind too much - I normally drink alone (hey, isn't that one of the first signs of a problem?)

i have a bunch of normal pint glasses, a few decorated hefe or pilsner glasses and about a half dozen of the "Dogfish Head Signature" glasses. I like the shape and thickness of them. I like the Sams glasses but just need an excuse to pick some up.

here is a shot of my go-to

i had one of these but it "went missing" it was a really cool glass to drink out of because it felt like you were still drinking out of a can

If you go to New Belgium's web site you can pick up a pair of their stemmed goblets for less than nine bucks with free shipping. I ordered two sets earlier today.

I may be ignorant but that doesn't stop me from having an opinion

I have my fair share of big glass Oktoberfest glasses and steins and whatnot, but my go-to glasses are these:


I have a few sets of them and they are great. They are very well designed and constructed, and although they are thin glass they are surprisingly strong (Spiegelau is made for industrial use).
