Does anyone know what glassware company makes the Maudite tulip? I really like it but I want an unbranded one. This is the closest I've seen but I can't find it in smaller more manageable packages for a single home and it seems to be way more expensive than Libbey's other stuff:
Libbeys is where I got my sniffers. I got those glasses on the link as well. Really cheap at the factory store.
How much $ ?
The Bottle Buddy. Turn any Bottle into a stein. Problem solved!
Oh and for people who like the Duvel glass and want it unbranded I think it's Anchor Hocking:
gotta keep these on deck for kolsch
I like my Piraat tulip as a good all-purpose glass. Tulips in general are great for anything that isn't heavily carbed. Tulip glasses are useful for "forcing" head on a beer that otherwise might not form one, which is particularly helpful for beers that are high in alcohol.
I would pay my bill and leave with no tip. There are plenty of places that will let you have whatever glass you want! It's not like you were in the wrong.
Around 3$ a glass. Pretty good quailty as well
Great looking glass.
Damn, you're lucky that it's right in Toledo, OH. Not so much for me. Haven't ever seen this glass in person, not even BBB which is a Libbey whore.
I never said that it didn't serve it's purpose. I said I thought it was ugly which is purely subjective.
Snifter. This glass is nice for many reasons, including taking the chill out of the beer if necessary. Resting it in your palm helps with this if need be
I use a snifer, tulip or Lagunitas Jar for all of my beers.
But, beware: this glass is only 13 oz - the Duvel tulip is shaped the same, but it's (I'm guessing) about 16+ oz.
Whoa good info, thanks!
No sweat - and by the way - search "Libbey beer glass" on Amazon and you'll find lots of good glassware. I got the Craft Brew Sampler and I love all the glasses - 'cept the stange, actually - and I'd imagine you can buy 4+ glass sets of any of the styles.
Oh, and all the way back to the OP:
A tulip is suitable for (*almost*) any beer at any time. The guy giving you the beer sounded like he was being a bit dickish. Either glass would be fine. If he didn't have any, he could have just said, "we don't have any," right?
I like to try different glasses with any beer, and over time, I've developed my preferences. To me, the pint glass does seem to be a personality match with American IPA/DIPAs. But with a Belgian pale of any sort (even IPA), I'd go with a tulip - see, but that's just me.
There are no rules - experiment along the way and then go with what suits you once you find it.
I have a Short's nonic that I use for most beers. Haven't really ventured into the tulip yet.
I have some really nice wine glasses but id rather look at the little gnome on my choufe glass.
Side note - ISO Fantome Tulip!
This is fantastic, where is this from?
Edit: NVM, found it http://www.beerables.net/beer_bottle_buddy.aspx
I generally likey my Duvel glass very much but for me it just ain't macho enough for DIPAs or Imperial IPAs. Straight sleeve pint glass all the way.
The new Dildo glasses from Dogfish Head, all the women I know swear by them...
