My go-to glass would probably be my Kuhnhenn tulip. The only exception would probably be sour ales. Oh and hefewiezens. I love to bring out a big hefe glass and indulge from time to time.
If the occasion is particularly special, I will go with my Orval goblet. I picked that one up right at the monastery and I managed to get it home safely. Anyone familiar with the thin glass on the Orval goblet will appreciate this achievement. I just know that someday I will break it in the dumbest possible way right here in the comfort of my own home, after managing to take it halfway around the planet. But yes, that would be my favorite. Kuhnhenn would be my MVP.
I try to always drink from brewery specific glass, I also own way too much glassware, yet also not enough glassware...
Where does one purchase this glass?
Almost always use this one.
I have the Libby craft beer set, but I haven't opened it yet. A basic pint in 20 oz and 16 oz and oversized wine glass. They seem to work for what I've been drinking.
DFH Shaped Pint Glass
The Bruery Snifter
Hoppin Frog Snifter
New Belgium snifter...or a typical Belgian tulip.
New Belgium sniffer or Lagunitas Mason Jar.
Surly tulip or Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
Mikasa tulip/snifer. I have dozens of pint glasses, family hand-painted pilsners, and so on and so on, but I always use my plain, no design tulip.
The Spiegelau is like the glass isn't even there, eh? Santa brought me some...bummed because the tulip was out of stock, but should be showing up any day. The lager glass is perfect for Jacks Abby. Not obsessed with it...will still turn to the SA perfect pint, but the Spiegelau stuff is sweet!
The one I use most often is my specialty Dogfish Head glass, but for Imperial/Double IPAs and Imperial Stouts I use a Catawba Valley snifter and for Belgian Ales I use my Duvel tulip glass.
That's a Spiegelau tulip...check Amazon...BEST glass.
Seriously love Spiegelau...simply cannot more highly recommend it.
My Newport Storm snifter that's in half of my pictures and my Samuel Adams perfect pint which is in the other half.
Portsmouth / Smuttynose Tulip seems to fit the bill for almost any beer I drink.
To the left! Best Evar!
I usually use a snifter when I am tasting a beer for the first time, but for everyday drinking I usually use pint glasses. I don't know why, but I usually prefer pint glasses over stemware. Just what I'm used to, I guess.
90% of my beer goes into a Unibroue tulip
Hill Farmstead stemware
Lost Abbey Rastal Teku
Right now it's my Pipeworks tulip, but usually it's just any snifter.
Depends on what I'm drinking. I find my New Belgium globes the most universal, but I rotate between a few others.
Russian River stem
My Sierra Nevada Imperial Hop Etched glass is almost the only glass I use. Holds 20 ounces which comfortably holds a carefully poured Surly. The etched hop on the bottom creates lots of extra bubbles. And if your drinking 12 ounce bottles you only have to kill 4 ounces before its full.
H24 tulip. Sturdy with an etched logo.
Most of the time, the snifter pictured here.
Also have a FSW tulip which gets use, and a Stone IRS snifter tulip combo
Ever since I bought this glass, I use it 90% of the time, for strong beers, or just nice and hoppy ones:
Probably have to go to with my Schlafly snifter
I tend to buy a lot of glasses from different breweries, and then use my $1 tulip from a Dollar Tree store most of the time. If it breaks, it only costs $1 to replace.
I have a Unibrau Maudite tulip I use a lot. Also a NERAX nonic Inperial pint I use pretty frequently, along with a couple other types. I have a ton of glassware, though unfortunately, i don't have space to have most of them out now. I keep out a half dozen or so shaker pints, mostly for water and soda, and the above, along with a few Duvel tulips and a couple others, that I use for beer.
I use the brewery specific if I got it, then
For whatever I am feeling that night.
What he said, I use these two for nearly everything.
Unbranded (by mistake) oversized duvel tulip
My new fave
Dollar Store Beast
Pint of choice
My Duvel tulip, so versatile.
Either that or my Hill Farmstead stem glass.
I usually pick my Tony's glass I got from Tony's Darts Away's 2nd Anniversary. It's like a miniature tulip/snifter. I like the amount that fits in it and the shape.
Pretty much every glass I own I get for free usually with a "buy the beer keep the glass" deal
Pretty much fits every beer, always has the best head and it looks fancy as shit. Even priced at more than 7+dollars
Samuel Smith pint glass
Second glass I use the most. Fits even more beer most of a bomber.
New Castle brown glass
I can thank BA for this since they let me know of this deal. Didn't cost me any purchase either since it was a print online thing with just the cost of a stamp and envelope.
I have more glasses but use these 3 the most.
