IMHO, plastic cups should never come in contact with any homebrew. It's showtime,,,Be proud to show off your creation(s).

Well I've got no issue with plastic cups. It's a cup. I don't care about spending the evening looking at the beer anyway. It tastes great, I get the aroma, no mess, what's the big deal?
If we're going to be drinking a few beers on the patio, no worries about them breaking anything on the concrete.

Homebrew is beer. If you can't enjoy it as a beer, you take yourself to seriously. Relax, have a homebrew.

When it gets to the point of having to feel uptight or like there are special rules as to how you can drink it, it's time to give it up and just buy your beer so that you can relax and enjoy it.

What if someone enjoys pairing their beer with appropriate glassware? I wouldn't consider that uptight. For many, presentation is part of the experience of drinking beer.

Nothing wrong with that. There's a time for everything.

As an example of uptight...

"IMHO, plastic cups should never come in contact with any homebrew. It's showtime,,,Be proud to show off your creation(s)."

I don't even care what someone else does to drink their beer.
Comments that homebrew should never touch plastic cups and needing to show it off, that's uptight.
I've got news..... It's BEER. Drink it and enjoy it.

Well,I just got a nice surprise a couple minutes ago. My son dropped by,& apparently went back to Akron again. He brought me a 4 pack of Thirsty dog's Cerberus,a nice heavy logoed pint glass,& a taster logo glass. Camera batteries are dead,so a pic will have to come later. And I was outta beer too,so this is great.

I found some Samuel Adams glasses for 1$ each at a flea market today and I bought two. Can't say I'm a fan of the Boston Lager but the glasses are nice. Lets see how long they last before they get broken. "Take pride in your beer"

Sorry if comments about plastic cups offend you, this thread was started as I am looking for some classy drinking glasses. If plastic cups are your classy glasses, then prost to you.

Told SWMBO I want the Goldfish Goblets for Xmas

I wouldn't call that uptight. It's just an opinion and, in my opinion, a valid one. I make an attempt to produce beer of a certain color. I'd like that to be apparent when it's served. Some home brewers may not care. That's fine. But, it doesn't make someone who does care uptight.

While my girlfriend and I were staying in Rochefort, Belgium back in May, the town had an outdoor flea market at which I purchased a Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA glass for the equivalent of about $3 USD. Score!

But FYI Rochefort is a dirty little town where everyone turns their nose up at you when they hear you speaking English. It's also the location of the worst hangover of my life. Several incredibly fresh Rochefort 10's, no air conditioning anywhere, tap water was nearly undrinkable, and high temps were in the low 90's that next day. Fun.
