So I was looking through some of the Post a Pint thread, and saw alot of really cool mugs and glasses. I was wondering where everyone gets their mugs from? Do they buy them? Or after the countless years of going to that local watering hole, the bartender just decided he had a few extra laying around for you?

I've ordered a lot of mugs and steins from this website and pint glasses I've seen a lot at target and you can go to specific brewery's websites. and occasionally some pint glasses somehow follow me home, like lost little puppies looking for a new owner.

I got most of mine at my local watering hole. Sam Adams was having a buy-a-pint-keep-the-glass promotion. I collected more than a few. It's amazing they all made it home.

That site does have some intense steins, and some nice glasses.

+1 on Goodwill for glasses. If you aren't picky about brand you can get pint glasses or pils glasses of locals for cheap. I've also seen a few snifters there. My favorite glasses are from Goodwill.

They will also usually have a bunch of mason jars for yeast washing.

I've accumulated most of mine as gifts. It has lead to an eclectic and fun collection.

Every time I go to a new brewery/cool bar/micro brewery I buy a glass. You would be surprised how quickly you can mass a nice little collection.

Same here, I buy one at every brewery I visit. And as some others have mentioned, sometimes unique glasses happen to find their way home from the bar with me.

If I'm in a bar and like their glasses, I ask the bartender if he would sell one. I try not to buy the standard shaker glass, its not very appealing to me. My girlfriend bought me a nice 11.2 ounce stiefel at an antique store for $5, I use it all the time.

Awsome link! I've been looking for a couple of thing they carry for years. Thanks so much for sharing this link, I'll certainly be doing some biz with them soon. Regards, GF.

That's a good point. I was back in IN for a wedding recently and asked the bartender to buy a cool Bell's Oberon Summer 2010 glass (I can't find it here in CA and it's a fave of mine) and he just gave ti to me. I was sure to leave a nice tip.

I always buy a glass when I go to a brewery. When I come across a cool glass at a restaurant or bar, I usually get it for a five finger discount.

I usually get hammered and walk out with it at the end of the night!

I wake up hungover with a bonus glass in the sink.
