    I'm stoked to announce that our merch store is back! Just a few items to kick things off, but you can now buy BeerAdvocate-branded glassware, t-shirts, and hats with more gear to follow. And we even have a BA Teku glass, because everyone needs more Teku.

    https://gear.beeradvocate.com

    (Free shipping on orders over $50 within the US.)

    Thanks in advance for your support. :beers:

    That teku may be the first thing I get shipped to me at my new address - looks great!

    Just be careful with them. I easily broke many of them.

    The trick to not breaking them is to not use them. :stuck_out_tongue:

    I really dig that Teku, too bad it would be around 30€ for me with international shipping and my last Teku lasted about 15 months before I broke it...

    I reckon that I broke a 6pack of Lost Abbey Tekus in that same time period and I am not all that clumsy.

    Is there a nucleation site at the bottom of the inside of the glass? (The other Rastal teku I have been thinking about ordering has one.) Thanks! And please stay safe!

    Getting one because I never tried one.
    Do I have to open a new account to buy one?

    Teku ordered. I hope they update the hats. Can't do 'trucker' or 'gangster' style hats.

    I may actually leave my house if I had a BA face mask.

    Include a titanium straw for public sipping.

    Plz. I need this.

    I have one and haven’t broken it, knock on wood. However, I use it only for beers that I plan on just sitting and enjoying a beer. When I am bbqing, playing corn hole, etc I use my trusty tulip or Flared pint glass which are more sturdy.

    cant beat a teku glass. So elegant and sexy, and Perfect for agitating the beer to create foam...cheers

    Just ordered, telling my wife y'all sent it to me for spending so much time on your site :slight_smile:. Nice glass, once my daughters see it, will probably be back getting more. Have to agree with @Thankin_Hank on the hats, don't do farmer hats, did those years ago when I farmed, threw them all away when I got out :slight_smile:.

    I wrote above that the trick to not break them is to not use them, but I probably could have been more specific and said not to wash them. I suspect that's when most glasses get broken, during the washing process. I've only ever broken two glasses, both while washing, but neither was a Teku.

    Ok working weird hours now so went to the back for a nap and woke with a start, heard what sounded like a glass broke. Sat up and first thought was it was my new BA Teku, then realized I hadn't gotten it yet so laid back down. Damned this thread with broken glasses has me jacked up!

    Bought a hat - they look great!

    hopefully there will be some other styles of glassware in the future - not a big fan of tekus, so I passed on that.

    Pretty nice glass, I'll be using it a lot once I get it washed. Got a couple shirts too, can't wait for the other new merch in the future.

    It's insane, but I have no Teku glasses at all.

    ... until the ones I ordered arrive! Woo!

    Since the hats have embroidered logos (it seems), could embroidered cloth patches be made available? My denim jackets simply cry out for such!

    Also, knit toque hats for Winter?

    BTW, I still have my original CANNeck from years past!

    I find the Teku especially tough. I have dropped it on my kitchen floor several times,no problem. Spieglau are another story, if you look at it the wrong way it shatters into hundreds of micro pieces-

    Just ordered two Tekus and a shirt in a drunken stupor, I'm sure I won't regret this in the morning! No, seriously, I'm pretty sure I won't, looking forward to this stuff :grin:!

    Any word on if you're ever going to restock the hooded jackets again? The one I bought years ago is worn out and in rough shape
