I have the Duvel, tulip, snifter and English pint glasses. The one I'm most in need of now is a heffeweisen glass. Any recs? I'd prefer a 15-16 oz glass, not the large 23 oz ones. Cheers!
Tulip or snifter is my choice for any beer 98% of the time. The other 2% is from the can while outside or licking off the kitchen floor after a spill.
Got be only one for everything? Good old fashion, well made pint glass.
Delirium Tremens snifter and a pint glass just about covers it. A couple of tasters are good for a get together. Funny, out of all the styles of glasses I own (about 40 glasses of various shapes) it is those two I prefer over most.
I've said it once and I'll say it again, if you're wanting one singular glass that will work for and encompass all beer styles, you cannot find a better, more high quality drinking vessel than the Duvel snifter. There is literally no type of beer that is "wrong" to drink from this glass. It can hold almost two 12 ounce bottles of beer, meaning there's plenty of room for beers with massive head potentials or for if you want to get greedy with your 22oz bomber, the crystal its made from is very good quality and it has the etching in the bottom to help out with head retention.
I think a Teku is very versatile.
Exactly this!!! Any beer tastes better in one of these....
Tiplip or red wine style glass, HF glass is great here. Pils glass for Pils and Lagers.
what particular style do you drink often, or like to drink often ?
A 15.5 oz Brandy snifter. Everything I drink out of it tastes good.
HF wine stem or SP wine stem; they are both the same shape. The glass is called "the Charente" made by the Durobar brand; prior to receiving a logo branding on the glass. It is the perfect glass shape for all beer styles. It is definitely my universal glass shape and I pour beer into it for almost all of my beer reviews unless I go to a beer tasting(dont want to break one of these glasses at a tasting). The bowl is like a hybrid of a tulip and a snifter. The glass swirls high abv barrel aged beers nicely. Provides a great shape to give the beer an excellent aroma for any style of beer.
It is a 18oz glass, so when you have a beer from a 12oz bottle or 375ml bottle you can pour without worries that you will make a mess and the entire beer will always fit even with massive head on the beer. It is also super easy to clean because the opening of the glass is not too narrow. The glass is very sturdy and well made. I can keep going on for days about why that wine stem is the most universal and best beer glass available right now. Can't think of any disadvantages of this glass.
While that is a good glass, it is difficult to clean.
I usually just use a dimple mug.
I think the sangria glasses from World Market suit just about any beer. Honestly, I don't know why they call them sangria glasses when they are so obviously suited for any beer. The Spiegelau IPA glasses work for just about any pale ale or lagers. That being said though, I'm drinking a DIPA from a mason jar right now, and that's pretty much all you need.
I disagree with the generic pint glass. It was never intended for the use of beers and does absolutely nothing for the smell and taste of a beer.
i had Lagers from Pilsner flutes and IPA glasses.
The IPA glass and the snifter always won
I use a baby bottle cleaner and its not that bad.
The Dogfish Head Signature glass is a really nice all purpose glass too.
I got my glass at IKEA. Cheap and sturdy. I bought nonic types and snifter types. I like the snifter type more than my ommegang snifter/tulip
That big sucker on the left.....
Having only one glass is like drinking the same beer for the rest of your life. Variety is the key. Dollar tree is actually a decent place to get some everyday drinking vessels. They have a decent selection and they are only a dollar each. I pick up a lot of cool glassware at flea markets as well.
I bought a Lagunitas mason jar ... I like it. It's weird that a Brewery so well known for IPAs would make that their signature glass, but whatever. I have no idea when the mason jar beer phase started an what style is appropriate but I assumed lower ABV beers with that glass.
I find that they make a fine vessel for Euro Lagers & such.
Behold, the Libbey Super Thistle!
I would feel awkward drinking from a glass like that, but I still think it's kinda cool.
Like others, I feel the snifter-style glass is probably the best bet for an all-round beer glass. I picked up a couple from Dollar General for $1 each a few years ago. They look very similar to New Belgium's Globe. Personally, I don't like to spend a lot on glassware.
As some have said, you really can get by with one glass: a tulip/Teku/snifter style. I also have shaker pints, nonic pints, pilsener glasses and so on, but the tulip works for pretty much everything.
The trick is to not let the beer residue dry in the bottom. I rinse with warm water immediately and wash with a sponge. Occasionally, it goes in the dishwasher. No problems ever.
Check out World Market as well. They have a decent selection and I got a few of these on clearance ($1.99 each) last fall:
Tulip or Teku if you're fancy.
I use this one for just about everything too (I also have a freezer chilled plastic one, for use on cheap summer beers enjoyed out on the deck in the heat of summer too).
I love these glasses. They work well for virtually any style. I have several at home.
Duvel Tulips are awesome, if not a little too large. They look half-empty after a full bottle pour. I really like the smaller Delirium tulips for most 12 oz beers. They are light and comfortable.
Not sure what this is called. I just got gifted this one.
It barely fits 12 ounce.
It's been taking quite a bit of playing time away from my other favorite:
Fits nearly 16 ounce with foam/head. More of a globe/balloon shape.
Shaker pint (runs for cover)
This elegant vessel:
I use a 22oz stemless wine glass for 95% of the beers I drink. You can get a case of 18 of them at Costco for around $20. The glass is thick and they don't break easily. Even if they do break, who cares...they're only $1.11/each
Probably the Duvel tulip or a good snifter glass for all around use. I have so many favorite glasses I can't just pick one....so don't ask me what my favorite glass is.
Here is my newest glass......pretty cool. I like it.
