    That glass is really cool, almost makes me wish I liked pumpkin beer.

    These are some of the cooler glasses I've acquired during my tenure at a Philly bottle shop. I ended up taking a bunch of most of these. I have a ton of regular branded pint glasses, too, but none really worth showing off.

    i love these small stone snifters. i have a bunch of them that i use for at home flights/tastings. they are frail, so be careful with them.

    I can't even touch frosted glasses (#1 above). It's like scraping your fingers over a chalk board. I'm glad you like it.

    terrible quality, but it's mostly mugs and steins up top, shakers in the middle, and snifters/tulips on the bottom. each shelf is roughly 3-4 glasses deep.

    goodness, this picture is terrible. I'll try and take better ones tonight.

    Sorry about the bad picture. I know this collection is a bit smaller then what has been posted so far, but it works for me (not pictured is a drinking horn that holds 2 beers)

    it would be sweet to install some of those hanging holders for stemware on the underside of the lifted portion of the shelves.

    I have some wire ones like that hanging over my breakfast bar for wine glasses, but I never thought about putting them under the shelves on the wall. I'll have to check and see if I would still have enough clearance for glasses to hang over glasses

    Very interesting. Where did you pick that up, the tasting room?

    Found this at a flea market a couple weeks ago, cleaned up really nice. It looks hand blown. The base has ridges on the bottom and is a little off-center. Weird that this shows up in Kentucky. I have a feeling it's probably quite old, and maybe old-world.

    Really like the glasses on the left... they look like they're cut-lip type instead of rounded, yes?

    I've wanted these for some time now, finally ordered them and they got here yesterday. Had the proper beer out of them last night.

    Couldn't be more pleased, not too thin, not too light, they feel perfect!

    Absolutely, thrift stores. The past few weeks I've gotten a Great Lakes willi pint, a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" (kinda goofy but it feels great), and a Goosd Island shaker. Nothing fancy, but nice glasses, all for around $5.00.

    My favorite thrift find was this Grainbelt one for $1.00:
    [​IMG]
    Great for lagers.

    My current favorite is this La Chouffe guy which I got for $3.99 at a Wisconsin liquor store:

    Not the best shots, but I really don't feel like dragging all of my glassware out to arrange for a better picture.

    I also have a few weizen/pilsner glasses that are in other cabinets since they are too tall for this one.

    Is that a freaking Legend of Zelda pint glass on the far left of the middle row? If so, how and where?!

    Wish I had a Cantillon glass collection like that, but I was able to complete the first set of Duvel glasses recently,
    too.
