    Gents-

    Was talking with my mates a few weeks ago about glassware and we all have our go-to glass for drinking beer. One of my friend loves his Jester King tulip, another his Crooked Stave tulip glass.

    Mine would be the Avery tulip. It's fairly small imo which helps me space out my sipping and I think it looks freaking badass.

    I do have one of those craft beer glass set (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006PKHD9U/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00) that I will use for specific styles like Hefes and Pilsners, but haven't bought any of those styles yet so have been using my tulip for stouts, IPAs, quads, and other Belgium ales.

    What is your go-to beer glass?

    I have 3 Duvel Tulips that I use, then I bought this one from a Thrift shop that's like a snifter with a thicker stem, but the stem is hollow. I've been using that a bit too, as the Tulip is that big it'll hold most bottles and I don't want to hammer them all down in one sitting

    For the longest time, my Duvel tulip was my go-to. A couple of years ago I picked up a couple of Dogfish Head signature glasses and used them more or less exclusively. Then, about a year ago now, Beer & Whiskey Bros. turned me on to Spiegelau glassware, and now I'm all about my Spiegelau tulips...absolutely love 'em!

    my nitro milk stout glasses. I love them because they're the perfect size, and are etched w/o color so I can toss them in the dishwasher. That being said, I also love my hoffbrauhaus 0.5L pilsner glasses for water... ok fine, and cocktails... just because of the large volume...

    I use my Brooklyn Tulip Pint and Samuel Adams Winter Lager Mini-Nonic most. Actually, I use my no-brand Willi glass more than both of those.

    I loathe the growing trend of wine beer glasses, ala Hill Farmstead

    For something new or fancy it's a Cascade stemmed globe for sours, Bruery tulip for most everything else. IPA's and locals usually end up in a shaker pint.

    When I'm watching Game of Thrones, I always bust out the massive, heavy Rogue XS goblet. Just seems to pair nicely. ;)

    Sam Adams Perfect Pint is the only one that I own, sadly. It gets the job done pretty well, though. I want an FFF Teku glass, and that HF glass looks sexy as Hell.

    My Duvel beer tulip (that was given out at a Belgian beer and food tasting event) when I am having a high ABV sipper. And I like the Sam Adams custom pint glass when I am having some lower ABV beer as my beverage with dinner.[​IMG]

    Duvel green tulip. Slightly smaller than the standard. Perfect for nearly everything that doesn't require a snifter

    I use those glasses every time I go to my parents house to visit. My dad and I got them in a holiday set (maybe around 2003?) that Michelob put together with 2 glasses and 2 beers, one chocolate, one vanilla. The beers were worse than horrible, but I still dig those galsses.
