I like using my Brandy Sniffer for anything over ABV of 6%, with lots of aroma and darker than a Amber.. Anything lighter or lower ABV I like using my Sam Adams glasses..

Just wondering what others like using while enjoying their brew

For English ales (my most usual homebrew), I use regular pint glasses. For light lagers I use a Pilsner glass. For Belgians and big brews with lots of esters or spice I use a stemmed large round wine glass. For bruisers like Barley Wine I use a snifter.

SWMBO and I have a ton of Duvel tulips and pint glasses and both styles get lots of use. Someone gave us a pretty spectacular pair of Waterford pilsner glasses as a wedding gift. I need to brew something worthy of using those.
Who is this Rorschach guy? And why did he paint so many pictures of my parents fighting?

I know it's wrong, but I use my 11oz Belgian snifter glass from Northern Brewer for everything!

I buy mine from the dollar store

Tulip shaped for tasting/ciders.
Tall tulip/pilsener for just about everything.
And a pint glass with a handle for porters/stouts.

I also bought a pack of expensive Guinness glasses that I rarely use from Wegmans.

My wife uses a frozen Hofbrau House 1/2 liter mug we got her at Octoberfest, no sharing that one (lol) and its the best beer drinking mug we have, I need to get more of them next October.

We regularly use pint mason jars straight from the freezer, Pilsner glasses and Guinness glasses all from the freezer.

Green beer sucks, let it age/condition/finish and become great before drinking it. WileECoyote

Good/Great beer takes time! if you want a quick beer go to the store or bar!

I use pint glasses for everything. All my other glassware is upstairs and I usually just grab a pint glass from near the fridge because they are easily accessible.

I use a stout glass for most things but I break out the tulip glass for sipping beers. I've also been known to use my German beer stein for German beer and my flask mug for beers that I don't consider anything special.

The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.
