    Thought I'd make a thread so we can share information. If you're like me, you don't turn down free glassware! SAQ had a nice La Chouffe tulip this summer when you bought 2 750's, and I was in St-Hubert last week and got a nice Schneider Weisse Heff glass with the purchase of 4 SW beers.

    If anyone know of any free glass, or box that include a glass type of thing, please share :slight_smile:

    Seems the holiday season is the best time to get free glassware. I picked up a couple of Pilsner Urquell mugs at Christmas time. Other than that I haven't seen anything.

    Your SAQ seems to have a lot cooler things than any of the ones I have ever gone to...

    Haha sorry that was in response to the Pilsner Urquell mug. The Sam Smith glass and box was at LCBO

    Ah ok. I don't know if it is the same one you are talking about, but the little Winter Warmer glasses that Sam Smith's puts out are some of my favorites.

    It was their regular pint glass, nothing fancy

    For the most part glassware, especially nice glassware, if given out at all is mostly done as promo for one of the big generic breweries. They can afford it. I've lucked out on a few rare glasses bought from a pub cheaply. Really want a Triple Karmeliet glass and a La Chouffe. I have goblets and lager glasses and a nice pair of flute Mort Subite that I found at a second hand shop. No tulips or snifters. Generic glasses are cheap enough, ones labeled of the brewery (Rochefort trappist glass for example) not so much.

    Might be an idea to have a section in the Canada forum for deals on glassware. Maybe at some point a swap meet for glassware by city too. I've lucked out with a few finds in second hand shops like Goodwill and Salvation Army.

    I suppose it be like the Beer Trading section. In fact it may be even better to do a beer and glass swap since you're paying for the postage anyhow. I know a local pub that sells some right from the distributor glasses for about $6 + tax though only if they have the extra stock.

    *Edit: Well I just joined the Beer Trading section and whattaya know they have glassware trading.

    I have a lot of glassware. All stemmed (shakers I use for drinking water at home).
    I am unloading a lot as I've run out of room. If you are interested send me a PM and I'll provide a link to my database. :slight_smile:

    This is my favourite set that comes out every Christmas, lots of Belgian gift packs available in the USA have glasses too.

    I'll recommend hitting up the second hand stores for glasses. Here's what I found today all at $1 a piece:

    Also miraculously found an unused Mr. Beer premium kit with everything in it for $15.

    Interesting you say that. Saw a Mr Beer kit and the local Value Village just the other day. Passed on some great Unibroue tulips with the gold rim. Kicking myself now.

    Yeah, it was just so random. Actually found it at a Goodwill store which seemed to have reopened after all the stores were closed for a couple weeks. Too it was unused and the extract is still within expiry. Not sure if I'm going to use it standardly but at the very least a bottling bucket for small batches. At any rate for glassware I'm pretty close to having all my needs met just y these second hand shops. I think I need a snifter and a one of those fancy porter glasses next.

    Nice Thiriez glasses I have imported the brewery to Alberta for 5 years and never seen those. I will be asking for some my next order.
