    Found these in store today. Up until now I've had to order everything online.

    These came in the mail. Love the Local Option glass. Love that place. Tekus are the best.

    A couple more due in via the mail.
    This one specifically:

    Tots and brews at the bar at Local Option. The "Christmas Leroy" was not in said glass, but another identical "Leroy" glass is headed my way. Memories of an awesome trip to Chicago.

    Now just need to work on those Mikeller glasses.

    I remember a while ago at a breweriana fest, a guy told me he had over 800 pieces of glassware in his collection. I thought that was insane at the time. But now, as my second cabinet is pretty much full, that lofty quantity doesn't seem too far off. Nor do divorce papers, which I expect will be served to me any day.

    No, they don't have any for sale yet. My brother got them from someone at the brewery for me.
     
  14. Oh, very cool. According to a rep they'll be on sale online eventually. Fingers crossed.

    My Bruery glass just bit the dust. :(
    Had one beer from it, washed it by hand and put it on the counter to dry. A couple seconds later I hear a little "pop" and there is a crack running up the sides from around where the stem meets the bottom of the snifter. WTF. I thought Rastal was decent.
    Bummed as I have some Bruery beers lined up and ready to go over the holidays.

    Did you use hot water? If so, that's probably why. :p
    (see: thermal shock)
     
  19. I would drop Bruery a little note let them know about the tragedy. Maybe they would be nice enough to send a replacement .

    If that was true my wines glasses and other breweriana should have suffered similar fates. No?

    Sometimes it happens, sometimes not. I guess it depends on the integrity of the glass and the extremities of the temperature. You just have to be careful...if there was a cool/cold beer in the glass and you douse it with hot water, there's a chance you're gonna break the glass. I accidentally lost a ceramic pitcher this way just yesterday (water was too hot). And if you were sold a glass with a slight weakness in it, it's likely that the shock just got the best of it.

    Much better than silk-screened glasses. You don't have to worry about anything washing off!

    Must. Have.

    I'd much rather have that than the 3F or Lost Abbey ones (as Deschutes actually distributes here!) I can see me being all boss drinkin' BBXXIV out of it right now...

    Sucks man, I've washed mine a TON and I haven't had any problems. I usually wash it in really hot water too. Maybe someone near the Bruery can ship you one?
