    Anyone seen either branded version for sale yet in CT? Would love to purchase locally and save the $10 or so in shipping...
     
  2. Have you ever seen ANY DFH glassware for sale in a brick and mortar store in CT? I haven't. Same goes for any non-CT brewery. You'll need to order it online or visit DFH.

    Uh...I've bought plenty of glassware from breweries well outside of CT from off the shelf at many stores.

    Is there some sort of merchandise law that I'm not aware of?

  4. I just don't know where you're finding these glasses. The only glassware I see in stores is stuff that comes with beer (like a Duvel gift pack for instance) or occasional freebies from distributors (ie, my beer guy gives me a Sam perfect pint or two since he has a bunch around). I've never gone into a beer store and seen brewery glassware for sale. *shrugs*

    At stores.

    Are you suggesting that it's typically not possible to find this kind of merch at stores because there's a policy/law against it or assuming such simply because you just haven't seen any? Trying my best to follow along here....

  6. Not sure where they get them from, opened gift packs or brewery freebies, but have seen plenty of glasses for sale around CT.

    Just bought 2 Goose Island Wine style goblets the other day at Manchester Wine & Liquor

    Oh damn, M W&L has the wine glasses? Where in the store exactly? I know they tend to put glassware up in random areas.

    Yaaaaaa, I've seen the DFH signature glass in stores before....not sure why this would be any different.
     
  8. Not to thread jack (even though that's exactly what I'm doing) Did you score any of the Gandhi Bot glasses?
     
  9. It was in the South Windsor, CT Manchester W&L, about 3-4 miles from the other one. on the left side when you walk in, still probably 4-6 GI Wine Glasses Left.

    Yes. I bought the DFH oversized snifter at Willowbrook in Cromwell. Stone glassware is sold at a store in Middletown. Same store has the Sierra Nevada Ovila chalice.

    What the hell are you talking about?
