    Has anyone else had any problem with these glasses? I ordered a few directly from their site and 2 of the 3 see to leave whatever color paint (or whatever it is they use) on my hand. It's almost like a top clear coat wasn't used and instead leaves a chalky residue.

    Which one specifically? I've used stone glasses for years and have never had that problem.

    I suggest that you contact the brewery's store. I think they'd want to know about this.

    Yeah, that it strange. I would probably contact the brewery and let them know. If it's the same paint that they use on their bottles, it contains cadmium which is toxic. I don't think that getting the ink on your hands is much to worry about, but regardless, you don't want the paint rubbing off the glasses you just purchased. Stone glassware is a work of art.

    I would try to get in touch with Melissa Bailey. She's generally my contact at Stone about all matters swag.

    Melissa is helping me out via email. She stated not to use a dishwashing additive such as "lemi-shine". I only hand wash my glasses with Dawn so I don't think this is the issue.

    Regardless, Melissa has offered to send me replacement glasses, no questions asked.

    Just another reason why Stone Brewing Co. kicks ass! Thanks Again Melissa!
