I've decided it's time to take the next step in beer glasses. I'm retiring all of my various "pint" glasses with breweries and think it's time that I get a set of glassware that is can be used for beer and nonbeer (think kid's juice)

To be honest, the typical "pint" glass isn't an ideal beer glass. I find it sucks with aroma.

If you were going to outfit your kitchen/bar with one and only one style glassware, what would you choice? The pilsner? British imperial pint? Stange? Snifter?

That Sam Adams glass is my go-to. Problem is, I can't get it without the Sam Adams livery on it, or else I'd have a dozen.

I use stemmed tulip glasses for 12 ozs bottles (think Duvel style glass), and 32 ozs stemmed Pinot glasses for Bombers and the like.

I like imperial pints for general use, but I'd have to have some tulips/snifters on hand as well.

I have some stemless wine glasses that are awesome for beers. They really look/act almost like a tulip.
Kinda like the stuff on here.


Maybe some will shun me and say THEY ARE GODDAMN WINE GLASSES!! =P But I don't care, they work.

I like chalice/goblet/snifter/tulip type glasses when I am assessing a beer.
