    doubt it since surge protector hasn't even gone onsale yet and the funds from that are supposed to go to help them get back on their feet.

    They are opened, to some capacity, I think, I know they were selling some of the bottled beer they did with Ommegang the past few weekends from what I heard (only limited number of bottles each of the past 3 Saturdays or something).

    I think I got confused with the size of the snifter, it is actually a regular sized snifter (pictured next to a FW mini for comparison), cool glass nonetheless.

    This may be kinda sorta off topic, but anyone know what I can order some customizable 4-6oz mini snifters for my tasting group?

    We do indeed have a World Market. That is a heck of a deal, but I wonder since we want our name/logo on the glasses if it would be cheaper just to order those then get a local place to customize them.

    Has anyone ordered the Eclipse snifter off FiftyFifty's site before? Just curious how long it took to get as I placed an order last Wednesday and haven't gotten any type of communication from them besides the paypal receipt.

    Just picked up one of these finally.
    That Barrier one is sweet. Looks like I might have some extra work to do on my next NYC trip.

    I've been waiting a month, I guess something got messed up on my address when it was shipped out, so it got returned to the brewery. It's been resent and I'm really hoping to have it by the end of the week.

    shows as out of stock on their site. i made some trades for it. cost $10 at the release party, $15 on the site. that's almost utopia glass territory :eek:

    i haven't had any luck tracking down the barrier one yet, but the brewery was annihilated by hurricane sandy. lots of beers being released to help get them back on their feet.
     
  17. thewimperoo

    thewimperoo Oct 1, 2006 Illinois

    Yeah, I rationalized it by them only charging $3.95 for shipping so in the end I'd probably pay $18.95 trading for it.

    Watching an episode of the web show called Local Brew that was featuring Maine Beer Co, there was a glass that I have never seen before. Anyone know how to acquire of these mini-snifter(-like) glasses from Maine?

    Can they be bought at the brewery or only used for tastings, etc? If anyone has extras I would love to try and trade for it or if they sell them maybe I can emails the brewery and see if they will let me purchase via phone/email.

    Reached out to Maine via email. This is the reply:

    Thanks for writing! We use those glasses in our tasting room for samples, and do not currently sell them. Thanks again for reaching out.

    I think it is fair to say the offer from you and I still stands for any locals or visitors, who can somehow end up with a few glasses after a trip to the tasting room.

    The CCB Hunaphus glass is a great one in the style the OP was looking for. My bad if its already been mentioned. Well priced, too!

    I received that one in the 2011 Secret Santa. It's a nice little snifter.
