    FYI
    The glass pictured is not the glass they are shipping. Make sure you read the fine print:

    TGB Barrel Chalice

    Buy now
    Description
    13oz TG Brews Specialty Belgian-style chalice. Features TGB "barrel banner" logo in pearl white.

    It's still a great glass.

    Yeah I read it is white. Kinda looking for it. The white should show better with stouts and porters ,but thanks for pointing it out. I know some people would probably miss that.

    Now I just got to get my hands on some more TGB beers, I have only ever had one.:(

    Outside of growlers, the bottles are hard to come by.

    I haven't had any, so I'm waiting to get the beer before the glass (and maybe holding out for a Psuedo Sue shirt)

    They seem to rotate through different colors. Does pearl white just mean white? Because when I think of pearl white I imagine something that's got some iridescent sheen.

    This is correct! The black logo was for sale at TG during the KBBS release. They sold out fast that day. White logo is now the only one that they have for sale.

    Actually they no longer have the white glass. Currently they have a gold lettered logo chalice available.

    The TG online shop is closing due to underwhelming response… so if anyone wants something shipped you better get on it by the end of the month!!!

    The white-letter glass is sold out, but they have a gold-lettered one ($8) that they describe as a "chalice" although the pic looks the same as the white-lettered one.

    The current glass is identical in shape and size to the other three releases of the glass (Black, Silver & White lettering) it just has gold lettering.

    And buy your glasses now, they're shutting down the online store cause you guys aren't buying enough of their amazing stuff. I blame everyone but me.
