    I really like the ones from Cigar City. Unfortunately they have been cursed for me - broke all 3 I've had :(

    this is an old Martell cognac snifter - marked on the foot. I've had it for 25+ years . Perfect for sipping Utopias or Bourbon.

    As the beer laws were changing in Mississippi last year, Raise Your Pints Mississippi made mini snifters for its members:

    It's a local go-to glass and a wonderful symbol of the progress (however small) we've made over the last few years!

    I don't have a picture of it, but the only mini snifter I have is from Central Coast Brewing in San Luis Obispo, CA.

    It's a very nice glass for tastings.

    I love this snifter, and was able to pick one up, thanks to a cool NC BA. However, just a heads-up, it's not a mini snifter, in case someone else is looking for one. Still a fun one, though!

    Thanks for this thread! I hosted a tasting last Friday, and while it went over well, I didn't have proper glasses for it. I immediately went to the Firestone Walker webpage and ordered up 5 of their tasting snifters this afternoon.

    I'm confused -- what is it if it's not a mini snifter?

    Curious, I measured it tonight and the NoDa holds 10 oz. It's smaller than my regular snifters, but larger than some I've gotten at festivals. Either way it looks great :)

    It's the same as the red letter Hlaf Acre snifter, which is also 10oz

    Yes, it appears to be 10oz, as others have said. Below is a comparison of what I'd consider an oversized, regular, and mini snifter to be.

    Again, it's a great glass, but it just doesn't quite fit into the mini snifter category ... in my opinion.

    Got out several sizes I have for a lineup. It's not mini, but I love the Terrapin one. Goodwill find!

    It was from a beer festival in Nashville, the Winter Warmer (epic event!). Local brewer Yazoo got their logo on one side.

    Here is a picture of my smaller snifters. For reference, the JK glass on the right is 12oz to the rim.

    We just posted our glassware on our online store. We have both a 13 oz tulip and a 6oz snifter for sale. More glassware is arriving later this month too. Cheers!
