My personal preference. When I got married each of my groomsmen got one.

Used to have a couple of those and it was pretty funny handing a full one to someone, that has never used one before, so that they're drinking it in the same orientation as in that picture. Once they hit that certain level of beer in the glass and the air suddenly rushes in to displace the fluid from the front of the ankle to toes area and it catapults the remaining beer out with quite an explosive force, all over the unwitting victim

I mainly drink my homebrew from a Pilsener glass. Really like the way they channel the CO2, retain head and the way they showcase the colour/clarity of my beers. Either that or a snifter.

I don't get too nerdy about it, but I do try to drink from the glass appropriate to style when possible. I am moving away from the shaker (standard pint glass from everywhere) and prefer something that curves to allow head formation and nose.

Love this glass. I think it's a vase, but I still love it!

I'm digging the vase, will have to see if the wife has one similar. Mostly drink from a pint or flute glass, or my Sam Smiths glass.

British pint or GTFO. Best drinking vessel ever created by man. Heavy glass, but not obnoxiously heavy. Thumb bump to keep it in your hand and not on the floor when you maybe had a few (too many?) Stamped with the queens measurement. Rough bottom to release carbonation. Easily stackable for convenient storage. Inexpensive, and (relatively) easy to find in case of breakage. Holds an imperial pint, so pouring a homebrew, even an overcarbed one is not a problem.
