Hey,
I was looking through different drinking glasses, and came accross these and thought that one (or two) would make a great addition to my bar. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a place to order one of these.




Most of the ones I can find online are only shipped in the U.K.; or $100+. It seems that most stores only carry half yard in the U.S., weak sauce. Haha if anyone has any pertinent stories/experiences with these, they'd also be welcome. Cheers,
Paul

rinse it out after use and spray out with hot water and soap. if it gets really dirty, fill with sodium percarbonate and hot water and it'll clean that sucker.

done.

I've seen the 1/2 yards at Kitchen & Co. But their stock seems to rotate rather quickly and they never seem to have alot of the same glassware twice.

There was a thread earlier today...I think they're on sale currently at WOrld Marketplace or somewhere like that.

Having used one of these they are a nice thing to look at but a pain to use. You have to spin the yard as you drink otherwise you're likely to get a tidal wave of beer.

Luckily the movers broke mine and I no longer have to worry about it.

Drinking from a yard can be an extremely messy experience. Even a half-yard is tricky. The bulb at the bottom makes regulating the flow very difficult towards the end. If you get one, plan on lots of practice ... outside.
