I use:
British Pub Glass

English Pints
And American Pint glasses.

Most of my ales go in one of these 3 depending on my mood and what is clean.

German Pilsner glasses and Belgian tulip glasses see use on occasion with the appropriate style. I avoid the tulip glass if I'm going to have a few as it is more delicate than my other glasses and i am clumsy enough sober.

Those have gone out of style big time in the UK. I grew up with them, but I prefer the tall "northern" style.

I also went off the windowed barrel mugs a bit when I got one thrown at me and it landed on my noggin. That ain't what beer is about!

Did the bloke what threw it at least say something like, "Stitch this, Jimmy!"?



Or was it south of Yorkshire?

I bought two SA glasses as a goof, when I saw them at BevMo for $5 a pop. Turns out, I love them...they are generally my "go-to" glass for draft. For bottles, I match glass size to bottle size. This is especially important for homebrew with yeast in the bottom, as I want to serve the entire bottle in one pour.

For a stout or ESB though, it's got to be a British pint glass. It's an aesthetic factor as much as anything. I like the shape a lot better, and don't like the thick glass on American pints. I've got a dozen or more of the latter, and seldom use them.

Although there is no category for it, my favorite glass is a weizen glass. Sleek and sexy. Although for this one I have to go with the nonic. Sits better in ones hand. The dimpled mug is just plain ugly IMO, but if it has beer in it who am I to turn it down?

since this turned into a best glass ever thread (not the original intent) I'm gonna go with my old Chimay glass. The wide opening is great for aroma, and the stem makes it look regal.

Now that you mention it, my "British" pint and half-pint glasses have the "CE" mark, and were made in France...
