I stole this from a resturant about 8 years ago and it's by far my favorite (I'm a bad bad person). Here it is full of my English Pale Ale:




Just thought I'd share...

It's not my "go to" glass by any means, but it's definitely unique (and over-priced). It's supposed to be the best beer glass ever, but I find it a bit top-heavy and small. (that's what she said)

I got two of the Sam Adams glasses from a local bar for cost ($2.50) each. All I did was ask if I could get a couple. Find that works the best. I have gotten at least a dozen glasses for free by just by asking for one.

I don't have pictures of mine, but maybe I'll take some and post them later this week.

As far as pint glasses, I have some Sam Adams glasses which fade from frosted white to frosted blue. They're really nice looking -- they were part of some kind of promo deal at a local bar.

I have some nice goblet-style glasses from a local brewpub called Brewer's Art. They're great but they don't hold a pint so I usually use them for sharing (tasting with friends, etc), and sometimes for wine, mead, barleywine, etc.

Ultimately, my favorites are some solid glass mugs that I got at IKEA for $2 each. I think they're these ones. Great mugs, they are big and chunky and solid, highly recommended.

Trivia: Mjöd (the name of the glass) means mead in Swedish.

I don't have any pics right now, but my favorite tends to change from time to time. First it was a German stein with a lid and a special crest on it, then I was drinking everything out of Pilsner glasses I got for Christmas. This week I'm stuck in a hotel on business so I went and got a few fine ales. I didn't want to drink them out of hotel glasses so I stopped at a dollar store. They had some nice heavy pint glasses for a buck or two each. I bought three and wish I'd bought more.
