Got a Pauwel Kwak one from a friend in Belgium... A few Sam Smith pints, a Flying Dog, some Guinness and then my fancy shmancy new Duckfoot Brewing glasses that SWMBO snuck into the cupboard...

Compliments of The Rising Sun Pub In London, England!
The other pic is the same glass with the company of the SWMBO wine glass.
This pub is right down the street from where my wife grew up. Just a local pub.
BTW Kronenberg IMO is some taste beer!

This thread is fun... I have way too much glassware, and have a few different "favorite glasses". I typically reach for a standard shaker, but here are a few of my favorites:

If forced pick a favorite, it would probably be this (plain) nonic pint:

I just like that glass for some reason.

My favorite tulip glass that I reserve for "special" beers or occasions:


Here is one of my boots that get a lot of play during Oktoberfest season:

I can't find a picture of one anywhere (and I'm at work), but I have a Harp Lager Pint glass that has blue raised lettering. Can't find it anywhere - I procured it in Ireland

New specialty beer glasses from Spiegelau. They're missing the classic British pint glass, but otherwise these look pretty nice. We have a couple of sets of Spiegelau wine glasses that are truly excellent. Much more affordable than Riedel and okay to put in the dishwasher every once in a while. I may have to pick some of these up.

I also have some more at my parents house. but they are old worn out budweiser mugs and stuff like that that my parents gave me. They have been using them as daily drinking glasses for juice and water and beer or whatever since before i was born. I also have an old bud holiday stein with the kleidsdales(sp?) on it but my dad refuses to let me move it from his house until i purchase my own house since its worth so much as a limited eddition...and he doesn't want to see it get broken by some college kids...even though i have been out of college for like 3 years.

at one point in my bachelor days i had about 8 Budweiser glasses. i dont have a single one anymore. and i don't even know what happened to them. my guess is they broke or disappeared.

yep i have lost a few pilsners, several wine glasses and a few weiss glasses because dumb drunken friends have issues with properly putting things in the dish washer. it was nice that they wanted to help and all... but cleaning glass chunks out of my dishwasher is not my most favorite thing to do. now i just tell people to leave everything and ill do it in the morning. luckily no one has ever put any of my glasses i actually care about in the wash yet. i make sure to hand wash all of those.

I've just realized as of tonight that I do in fact have a favorite beer glass. Most of my glassware is just cheap walmart pilsners, pints, and mugs. But, my favorite glass to drink out of?

My hydro sample tube.

The whole glass conundrum is a lot more simple if you are drinking in England. If you drink from:-

A) A straight glass: You are an ignorant northern wanker with a severe lack of edermacation

B) A windowed barrel glass: You are a "southern softie" that lives with yer mum, and still sucks offf her teat at every given opportunity.

It really don't get more simple than that!! :D

These are my favorite glasses - we got them from the BeerMania guy (who brews the Mea Culpa beer) in Brussels on our honeymoon. They were ridiculously expensive, and we had to hand carry them on the plane home, but I think they're amazing...Bohemian crystal or something, really heavy.

I bottle into bombers, and most glasses just don't hold enough. I found some 24 oz. pilsner glasses at Crate and Barrel for $3 each, and they're great!
