    Just curious if anyone on here knows of a good place to buy some glassware online My most favorite Duvel tulip has developed a chip in the lip and I've had no luck searching the interwebs. Cheers.

    Beat me to it. I prefer non branded glassware to breweriana (go figure), and True Beer is my go-to site.

    Yeah, True Beer is great. I prefer the non branded as well.

    Definitely this. Tons of non-branded glasses of almost every style, and lots of branded ones too if you're into that. They're where I got all mine except for the Libbey Craft Brews set, which was from Target.

    Are the glasses from Truebeer good quality? I assume they are with all the recommendations, but I've been "burned" on unbranded stuff before

    I don't want to make a separate unnecessary thread, but do folks know where I could get a lot of pint glasses with a provided image on them? We are planning on having them as gifts at our wedding, but am looking for a good place to get them done. Don't want them to be crappy, but not too much $ either.

    I second and third the notion of Truebeer.com. The selection (both branded and non) is extensive. They have honest reviews. I gave a less than stellar review of a chalice and they posted it. They also refunded my money and let me keep the crummy chalices just for my trouble. I wound up ordering different chalices and they were great. Their customer service and packaging are top notch.

    The unbranded Belgian Ale Glasses are the Libbey 16-oz Belgian beer glasses that most breweries put their logos on and sell as their snifter glasses.

    Do they have laser etched nucleation sites on them by any chance?

    I'm gonna say that TrueBeer is hit-or-miss, depending on what you order, whereas everything* I've got from Libbey has been great.

    I've got some great Libbey glassware:
    [​IMG]
    ...which is top-notch - you can order sets of 4 per style or a craft beer sampler (1 of each of 6 styles) - these are sturdy, feel right, flaw-free*, and sized appropriately for the beers you'd use them for (shown: flute, pilsener, weizen, tulip, and pint). You can get Libbey glassware easily from Amazon, Pier 1, and Kohls, etc.
    *my stange glass (not pictured) randomly had a slight bend in the lip

    I ordered a few from TrueBeer with mixed results:
    [​IMG]
    The grand snifter (as they call it) - on the right - is fantastic - thick and sturdy - easily confused with the stuff from Libbey.
    The tulip (or, Belgian beer glass, in their terminology), shaped like Duvel's proprietary glass, and the goblet, however, look okay but they are very dainty-feeling - the glass is thin and light, which I do not like. Their tulip is also notably smaller than the Duvel tulip it emulates...
    [​IMG]
    ...as well as being cheaper in feel due to the thin glass it is made of.
