    They had a bunch too. The lady tried to get me to buy more than one 6 pack of them, but I don't think I have 12 friends.

    Really wish I was closer to FFF def want one of these glasses, but am on East Coast. If anyone has an extra they would be willing to send me for cost+shipping, etc. Also I could trade a Hill Farmstead stemware glass for one of these. BM me.

    I love the tekus for tasting, but not for a full pour. I prefer a standard tulip to enjoy a full glass of IPA. For me, the tekus work best when only poured to about the line created by the "bulge" (for lack of a better term) at the bottom of the glass. At least in my experience.

    my fff teku is now one of my favourite glasses. it has all the temperature control of a stemmed wine glass with the concentrated opening for getting all those aromas concentrated right under your nose.

    i wouldn't use one for a stout (or really anything that can be drank at room temp) but i can see this glass getting a ton of usage.

    As of 3:30 pm today, they still were available. I stopped in for all of 5 minutes to get a few spares.

    I seriously put the two I bought in some sort of weird modern china cabinet I got and am yet to use them. I think they're next to some useless waterford crystal shit my mom bought me for my wedding. Hey mom, you could have saved a few hundred bucks and gotten me something I like if you visited Munster instead of Marshall Fields.

    No. They're fragile as fuck. I just broke mine the other day by barely tapping it against my cabinet door. You really have to be careful with them.

    I think everyone missed my point. I haven't used it because I prefer other glasses, not because I am afraid to break it.

    I haven't broken a glass in (five?) years. I am not some damned neanderthal.

    Not sure how you would know that you prefer other glasses if you haven't used it. If you're basing it on the fact that you don't like tekus, then why buy it in the first place?

    I have an xtra Teku if anyone wants it? $9 straight up. I work in Shorewood and live in Oswego and can't drive... legally. Would have to make arrangements to meet up in either Oswego or Shorewood. BM a brotha if interested.

    Do you think these will still be in Stock by friday? I have a friend who is coming down from South Dakota and stopping and picking me up beer In MN and WI and then was going to stop by FFF on friday and get some Teku's for me and him. So do you think they will still be in stock on friday at 2:30?

    dblab33 Initiate (0) Dec 9, 2011 Michigan

    Your guess is probably as good as anyone else's. Clearly people thought they'd already be sold out by now so I'm not sure how you'd expect anyone to guess what will be left come Friday.

    OK. Thats fair.. I might try to set up a trade for someone who can pick some up today and meet me buddy on friday at 2:30pm to swap out for money or MN or WI beer.

    sorry, meant to clarify: this is for IP chicago only. not willing to ship these glasses - they are quite fragile and i can see why FFF won't ship them either.
     
  37. chanokokoro

    chanokokoro Champion (835) Jan 31, 2012 Illinois

    I've shipped several to trade partners and friends with no casualties. Deschutes and Lost Abbey haven't had a problem shipping them, either. For the record, I have no problem with FFF's decision not to ship them along with HF, HotD and several other breweries that don't ship glassware. It's their glasses and therefore their choice.

    Just as chanokokoro has said, I've shipped about 50 of these things to friends all over the country and haven't had one break. If you got someone with BB4D that wants em but you have to ship, they'll probably be fine, just pack them well just like you would beer.

    Has anyone know if they still have these available still? I'm planning on taking a trip there tomorrow to grab a few. I tried calling the brew pub but no answer.
