    Wow, you guys have some nice stuff! I've received glassware as gifts over the years but I'm a klutz and afraid of breaking anything, so I use one of my 2 favorite plain shaker pints. And I've never even chipped them!

    I typically would lean towards using simple pint glasses and snifters most of the time despite having a larger selection of glassware available until recently when I've been pretty much using teku glasses for everything. They work well as a one-size-fits-all. I should likely start using glassware more appropriate for the style of beer I'm drinking, but I do enjoy being able to alternate styles in a single night while using the same glass (simply rinsed) between beers.

    Currently (of the ones with surviving logos*):
    [​IMG]
    Size and shape is my criteria, not branding. :grin:

    That Killian's, for example, is a relatively rare US-made Nonic style glass* which is a US 16 oz. pint, rather than a UK Imperial (19.2 oz) pint, so it nicely holds one 12 oz. bottle or can of beer + adequate head, without that annoying "space" left when using a UK Nonic.

    * I once had the same glass with a Budweiser American Ale logo, but, like many glasses, it passed away in the line of the duty. Look, folks, you're going die one day - why let your glassware survive you? "Oh, my wife and kids can sell 'em and live off the proceeds!" No, they're gonna donate them to the rummage sale at the church (maybe your son will save one "Oh, that was Dad's favorite glass!" He'll use it for pens and pencils on his workbench in the cellar).

    Yeah, bro! That one is a cool one...it "changes colors" with what you put in it. If I put a hoppy/light colored beer in it, it looks like this:

    But, if I put a darker beer like a porter or stout, it looks like this!

    I use my Zero Gravity and Bluejacket branded 14 oz. Willi Becher glasses pretty much interchangeably with most beers. If the beer is any larger, I'll use one of my 20 oz. unbranded Willi Becher's. Occasionally I'll use my .4 liter Silver Branch mugs, but it is a strange serving size that doesn't quite hold enough for a full pint, Euro or American.

    Here are mine, no particular order:

    [​IMG]

    1. GlassToMouth (such a terrible company name) Muppet Can Release Rastal Harmony Glass
    2. This one has a bit of a story. So, I worked for a brewery for 6 months, and we ended up taking over a brewery space from a brewery that never opened. They had a TON of glassware made before they opened, and just left it behind, so I grabbed a few glasses. This is my favorite of them. Nice and thin, super balanced to hold. The hop logo is pretty cool too.
    3. Barreled Souls "Splinter" Teku. Has a nice TMNT arcade game Splinter on it.
    4. Craftmaster. Just comfy to hold.
    5. Foam Tulip(? I'm not sure the actual name, never seen another like it.) My buddy from Scotland came and visited a few years ago, and we did a tour of the Northern Vermont breweries in one day and he bought this for me as a gift. This is what I drink most of my big stouts in.
    6. 16oz Russian River Nonic. Got this in a trade and I love it. Russian River is one of my favorite breweries, and Nonics are great to drink out of. This is my "jack of all trades" glass.

    We use to drink booze out of beakers all the time in college. Either at geeky Geology club meetings or after various lab classes were over with. We tried to get clean ones, but sometimes that didn't always work :slight_smile: Sometimes during the summer, there would be concerts on the quad, and several times people brought wine and forgot cups. I was working on campus over the summer so had keys to get into the labs and get beakers to use for the concert. One of my old roommates took some as keeps sakes after graduation and still uses them as glasses.

    I typically use a lot of different kinds of glassware, but picking the ones I use most are probably these...they cover most styles I drink. If I was to add a few more, it would probably be my Samuel Smith Imperial Pints, or Saint Arnold hourglass pils glass.

    Damn forgot my Pils glass, it’s just a classic. I have maybe 30 glasses not too outrageous, but these 7 fill the bill. If I redid the picture I’d drop the HF glass because I’m a terrible breaker of glass and I hide it away. But the rest are about what I use everyday.

    It's like choosing your favorite six kids when you're the proud father of 200. These are probably my six most used, but I tend to use branded glasses when I have one for the specific beer I'm drinking so I jump around a lot.

    Do little beakers grow up to be Willi Bechers?

    I keep it simple and use shaker pints for every beer that isn't a stout or special beer, and have a 12 oz snifter for all else. However, I'll break out the few pieces of special glassware that I have for guests. No guest wants to break the host's glassware, so they get better care than if I were using them. :slight_smile:

    I just assumed you were like me, hence the shakers which take a beating and won’t break. I hate it when I break my wife’s Knick knacks dusting , or her candle holders twice. If it’s glass I’ve broken it.

    I use about 10 regularly and another 5 on occasion, but these are the most frequent. I guess they're in no particular order in the photo, but I'll describe in order of most-used.

    Top-left: 4 Hands tulip, of the taller and narrower variety. Holds 16oz, so I can get most of a tall can in there (but gotta have a nice head, of course). My go-to for IPA, APA, usually ambers, lagers as well.

    Front-center: Schlafly 16-oz snifter. My go-to for barleywine (favorite style) and most stouts. Again, large size means I can fit most of a tall can. I have a bunch of small snifters that I'll never use. I need another this size, but I haven't seen one in years.

    Front-right: Perennial tulip. I live near Perennial. They're probably my most-consumed brewery. I use this one for all their beers but the sours.

    Rear-right: Perennial wine glass. I use it for most wild ales.

    Rear-center: Schlafly Pale pint. Some lagers, pales, British styles.

    Front-left: Scratch 4th anniversary tulip. It holds a couple ounces more than the Perennial, so I use it for saisons and Belgians from other breweries. I (of course) use it for any Scratch.

    :rolling_eyes::laughing::joy::grimacing:

    Jokes aside, I love my over-sized Duvel. If not, then any snifter and/or tulip. Geordie Schooner glass is nice as well. Makes it much hard to knock your beer over.

    I wouldn't mind a few different styled glasses, but storage is an issue. I did use a stemless wine glass to check out a perceived lemon scent from a beer @JackHorzempa mentioned a couple of weeks ago (Scrag Mountain Pilsner, I think). The glass did present some difference to the smell.

    But I like the shaker pints for the same reason you do - they're nearly indestructible. And versatile.

    I guess I'm getting lazy. I'd say more than 80 percent of beer is poured into these 2 glasses. I am drinking mostly lagers these days. I do have tulips for IPAs and stouts and a Chimay chalice for the occasional frothy Belgians.

    I never thought about it this way until now. I have many logo beer glasses from places I have visited that I don't use for fear of breaking them. Makes no sense to have them if I don't actually use them for their intended purpose so I will begin using them and remember what it was like to be able to travel pre-Covid.

    They also stack wonderfully, but I collect them if it strikes me, but I prefer something like red wine glasses more. I broke my favorite years ago paid $1 for it at a consignment shop.
