Default Glassware

I'm sure there are a lot of these posts but I didn't see any. Where does everyone usually go for beer glasses and what's your favorite?

I always use my regular everyday glasses from Walmart. They look like a version of a pilsner glass. Though I do break out fancy stuff every once in a while. Fancy consists of pint glasses that I get from various brewery tours and tastings. Sometimes I use SWMBO's stemless wine glasses when I feel really exotic.
I have been looking for some short brandy snifters for tastings but haven't sourced any that I like so far.

I'm at Walmart glasses too. Looking for something a little more dedicated? I guess. Haha

I just stopped by Walmart and found a 1L mug for $2.80. I also have a craft beer glass set from Libbey, and I use the pub glass the most often. Found it at Ross for like $10 I think. And I found a tulip shaped beer glass at BevMo's for like $7 and if I remember right, its about 15.5oz.
I'm pretty snobby about not drinking from the improper glass or, gasp, the bottle lol.

I have over 100 glasses from various breweries. It helps that two of our local bars have "steal the glass" night where they feature a micro brew and have the matching glass you can take home. I'm actually at the point I am out of glassware space. Biggest issue with all the nice glasses, is having to hand wash them. (I have found some do the dishwasher well, and others loose the cool graphics so I don't risk it anymore). I actually don't mind when my "walmart" glasses get dropped, but drop my micro brew glass and your cut off!

And my favorite are prob my Duvel artist ones or my Delerium with the cute pink elephants! Love the shape of them vs a normal pint.

Reason: added a line

I have many different glasses from all over but usually I drink from one of two glasses. My Tallgrass Brewing tulip or my Funkwerks Tulip.

I actually moved my regular drinking glasses out and started using all of the pint glasses "stolen" from various bars. So they're all basic for the most part with a few fancy ones from "pint night" and such.

I've actually only been reading about which beers go with which glass, just for kicks.

Current beer glass collection:
  • 0.25l glasses from a German brewery - for tasting and sharing
  • Pilsner flutes
  • Sam Adams glasses - they work great for many styles
  • Goblet from the local malt house
  • bar glasses - you know, those cocktail shakers
  • Solo Cups - No collection is complete without some
  • Scotch tumblers - man does not live by beer alone

And the ultimate beer infographic with suggested glasses. About $25 at various places.

If you are looking for non branded glasses take a trip to crate and barrel - you will find a glass for every style there for around $2-5
