    I just saw @Roguer post a WBAYDN with a funny AF glass (Shut up liver, you’re fine). That made me wonder what awesome glassware is out there that BAs use for their daily drinkers. I don’t have anything stellar, like a unicorn mug I saw out there today (that might have been @GreenBayBA), but I enjoy a good glass.

    In any event, if this a repeat or dull, I’m sure a mod will duly put it into beer limbo.

    My daily go-to: area code branded tulip...currently housing a 2019 DFH WWS.

    My favorites are my Jester King Snörkel snulip (tulip/snifter crossbreed) and my Simon Pearce 19+ ounce gigundo tulip. The Snörkel was my go-to until I got the Simon Pearce a few weeks ago. My next acquisition is the Simon Pearce Stout Glass, shown last. Not shown is a KBBS glass that is waiting for me to land some KBBS.

    That Adina is a beautiful piece of glassware.

    Indeed. They thought they could hide it on a shelf behind a bunch of cheap wine glasses, but I spotted it from the next aisle over. They apparently had no idea who they were dealing with. :sunglasses:

    I’m a glass freak, and that’s a tier one glass. I’m sure it was designed to be a red wine glass, but they also make extraordinary beer glasses.

    I hate teku's on an aesthetic view, but, damn, they are a nice drinking vessel.

    In that line they make red wine glasses and champagne glasses. That looks like the red wine glass, especially for a buck, he’ll it was free.

    The wine glasses in the Adina Prestige series have more pronounced curves than the beer tulip. Regardless, I would've bought every Spiegelau they had at a buck each.

    Alas, there was only the one. I haven't seen another since. :slight_frown:

    Forgot about this glass! When I first moved to NYC there was one of these in the AirBnB I lived in for a couple months and I loved using it. New Year's Eve's Eve treat-yo-self gifts are normal, right?

    They are, go get one....if you can find one. Back when I bought this I think they came in 2 packs....so I have a spare. Winning!

    Another glassware fanatic here, I have a decent collection (although nothing compared to some I’ve seen in the hundreds). I probably have something like 40 all told? My avatar is a glass from a bar in Seattle (where my brother lives).
    When our son Charlie was born I asked him to
    Send me two of these glasses and they are my wife’s go to drinker and one of her most cherished gifts.

    anyway I just got back from a trip to Montreal and limited myself to ONE new glass (I did just shatter my district 96 tulip a few weeks ago so....). This unusual take on a teku from BreWsky Brasserie Artisanale (great spot) is fantastic. It’s 17oz and very heavy and sturdily constructed:

    RIP District 96 tulip, ye shall soon be replaced:

    I had a nice set of Spiegelau, but our weird shaped Corian sink beat them to hell and they all broke. Even my lowly tulip bears a small chip in the rim. For a plastic sink, it’s a motherf*cker.

    ****This glass in no longer in production BUT:

    I swear by the Sauvin glass!

    It's a big tulip snifter hybrid with a hollow foot from which to hold the glass while reducing heat transfer.

    Own 4 of them and each one has it's own unique touch although they are all the same glass.

    That first glass is awesome and is known as the beer sommelier glass - I have yet to own it.

    Thanks! They usually have the Snörkel in stock for pretty cheap, but I see they're out of stock right now. Link below for future reference. I've never broken one but have several spares just in case. I even keep one at my son's house.

    First glass is very cool, love the HOTD glass and Adam and pretty much everything they do. Had a great visit maybe 6 years ago. Should have bought a glass rather than a t shirt I never wear...

    I guess in one way they're just good ol "pint glasses"...The printing is a map of Boston with Fenway Park in the center, which makes them special. They're a Christmas gift from my sister. That makes them specialer.

    For years I have thought about the teku glass- "of all the glasses out there, why get this alienish one?," but tastes and preferences change over time. As far as glasses go, I am a firm believer in a wide middle for more surface area release of flavor molecules, and a narrowed top to corral those fragrant molecules into your nose and mouth. The teku, although a little odd looking, does that.

    Looks sort of like a beer condom, safety first.... Heat transfer denied. Check.

    They were at the Shelton Bros Festival recently, but barely anyone was in line...bunch of dummies! They did a nice collab with Pohjala I liked.

    I love cool glass finds, I always buy if it’s great glass especially at $1. I’m always on the prowl at antique stores, but mostly at consignment shops.

    I have one of those that.. ahem... followed me home from a DFH tap takeover a ways back (Don't get mad; I asked the server if I could buy the glass, she said that a stack of cases of them were sent in for the event and I could just take it)
    It's a great glass, nice and sturdy.
    My other favorites are a Unibrau Mauduite snifter that didn't survive a washing by SWMBO, (she's done in a number of my glasses - I'm about to ban her from washing them...)
    and a curved pint from Maine Beer. I don't know the name, but it holds their bottles comfortably.

    And justified - that is definitely a unique and beautiful glass!!

    That being said, with a glass collection well over 100 pieces (which humbly pales in comparison to many BA'rs), this one by far is my favorite and all due to the generosity of @tacosandbeer. The shape is definitely unique but the nose this glass creates is just insane. The tulip / snulip has been a prior fav but this glass design blows them away, IMO.

    So tossing this into the mix: anyone prefer beer steins or those alloy beer mugs?

    I’ve never really given steins a proper trial, but they must be good for something.

    I have an alloy mug that I cured according to directions. One morning after drinking with it, I woke up with my heart literally beating out of my chest. Went to the ER, got cardizem to clear the atrial fibrillation (almost had to be cardio inverted), and I haven’t used that mug since! Might have been coincidence, but I’m not chancing it. I want to use it, but I’m not willing to try again at this point.
