    Personally, $19.00 for 2 ($9.50 each) for that glass, blank, is really expensive and overpriced. Considering the labeled glass from DFH or SNB is $9.00 in their online stores (yes, you pay more for shipping), and they have at least a brewery logo on them, it makes more sense to buy from the breweries. Granted, these two breweries aren't exactly hurting for support, otherwise I'd say "Support Local" blah blah blah...

    It's cool that you found the unlabeled glasses in a twin set, but good price? Debatable.

    I've also had zero desire to own this glass. Looks disgusting. Would prefer it with a Red Lobster logo, honestly ;)

    Found a great deal on this last night, $10 for the SNB with a 12 oz pour of Firestone Walker Double Jack!

    Awesome glass, did a side-by-side with a tulip and there's no comparison. The SNB glass simply yields a better aroma while you're drinking it.

    Also, go with the SNB or DFH instead of the plain ones. The SNB has a hop leaf etched into the bottom so the beer keeps effervescing while you drink it.

    The selling point for Spiegelau glassware is both in the shape of the glasses and the quality of the glassware. I don't have one of these IPA glasses, but the price for a set of two of any of their glasses is about the same and I'm happy to pay for a quality product. Having tasted beers side by side in quality and cheap glassware, I'm more interested in the better glass than the brewery name that's printed on the side.

    OP: Good find, thanks for the link.
