    Was talking with my mates a few weeks ago about glassware and we all have our go-to glass for drinking beer. One of my friend loves his Jester King tulip, another his Crooked Stave tulip glass.

    Mine would be the Avery tulip. It's fairly small imo which helps me space out my sipping and I think it looks freaking badass.


    I do have one of those craft beer glass set (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006PKHD9U/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00) that I will use for specific styles like Hefes and Pilsners, but haven't bought any of those styles yet so have been using my tulip for stouts, IPAs, quads, and other Belgium ales.

    What is your go-to beer glass?

    i have like 3 different style glasses including a nice ass FFF teku, but honestly my la fin du monde tulip seems to make beers taste way better.

    My Founders snifter is my go to glass
  4. I have 3 Duvel Tulips that I use, then I bought this one from a Thrift shop that's like a snifter with a thicker stem, but the stem is hollow. I've been using that a bit too, as the Tulip is that big it'll hold most bottles and I don't want to hammer them all down in one sitting

    I honestly cannot pick one. I rotate all my glasses pretty much. For reviews i stick with my ffounders tulip/snifter
  6. YETI Tulip
  7. I love drinking IPAs out of my Goose Island Imperial Pint glass otherwise I have to use my oversized Duvel tulip.

    For the longest time, my Duvel tulip was my go-to. A couple of years ago I picked up a couple of Dogfish Head signature glasses and used them more or less exclusively. Then, about a year ago now, Beer & Whiskey Bros. turned me on to Spiegelau glassware, and now I'm all about my Spiegelau tulips...absolutely love 'em!

    my nitro milk stout glasses. I love them because they're the perfect size, and are etched w/o color so I can toss them in the dishwasher. That being said, I also love my hoffbrauhaus 0.5L pilsner glasses for water... ok fine, and cocktails... just because of the large volume...

    I use my Brooklyn Tulip Pint and Samuel Adams Winter Lager Mini-Nonic most. Actually, I use my no-brand Willi glass more than both of those.

    I loathe the growing trend of wine beer glasses, ala Hill Farmstead
  14. For something new or fancy it's a Cascade stemmed globe for sours, Bruery tulip for most everything else. IPA's and locals usually end up in a shaker pint.

    When I'm watching Game of Thrones, I always bust out the massive, heavy Rogue XS goblet. Just seems to pair nicely. ;)

  16. I have that same glass set, and I just picked up one of these:


    Looking forward to using it; saving my Great Divide Yeti specifically for it.

    i had someone send me a 50/50 snifter as an extra prob would of used it a lot except it broke in transit damn it all to hell
  22. Bought this & the GD Icon snifter recently myself...both have gotten a ton of use lately between my wife and myself.
  23. Sam Adams Perfect Pint is the only one that I own, sadly. It gets the job done pretty well, though. I want an FFF Teku glass, and that HF glass looks sexy as Hell.

    I couldn't agree more. I have that snifter, and its always in use.
  25. My Duvel beer tulip (that was given out at a Belgian beer and food tasting event) when I am having a high ABV sipper. And I like the Sam Adams custom pint glass when I am having some lower ABV beer as my beverage with dinner.[​IMG]
  26. The St. Bernardus goblet a few posts up is my go to as well.
  27. I usually drink out of the class....of glass....

  28. og dogfish snifter, so massive

    Duvel green tulip. Slightly smaller than the standard. Perfect for nearly everything that doesn't require a snifter

    I use those glasses every time I go to my parents house to visit. My dad and I got them in a holiday set (maybe around 2003?) that Michelob put together with 2 glasses and 2 beers, one chocolate, one vanilla. The beers were worse than horrible, but I still dig those galsses.
  37. I freaking love this glass.
