    I typically use either my McChouffe tulip Or my larger 12oz unbranded tulip. Otherwise, I go or the SA perfect pint glass.

    It looks like the stemware, especially the tulip style is the one of choice. I do my best to rotate the glasses but the one that I grab the most is my Weyerbacher tulip.

    My 28 5/8 oz snifter, they're unbranded and the set wasn't cheap.... they bring a whole new experience to every beer that touches them.

    A couple of years ago a store near me was going out of business. I managed to pick up a pair of Spiegelau Tulips and a pair of the pilsner glasses for $1.99 a pair.

    I love them, but I'm always paranoid that I'm going to break them.

    For a something like a regular IPA I usually go with one of my many pints, but anything out of my growler gets the mad elf or weyerbacher tulip (makes me feel like I get more out of it), as well as anything high alcohol, or stouts, etc...

    The brand is Spiegelau. They are a little pricey but I've had mine for a few years and really enjoyed them. They can be found in stores in a couple states but I think I bought mine on Amazon if I remember correctly.

    And does any remember that online show that push these glasses? I can't remember the name of it at all but always thought it was pretty awesome. It was two or three guys talking about releases and drinking...I know that's all of them...

    I literally have every style of beer glass known to man and I try to drink Beer style in their according glassware. I have nonic pints, standard pints, American conical pints, tulip stout style pints, becker pints/german pints, 12 oz mugs, german mugs, weizen glasses, pilsner glasses, stemmed snifters, tulip snifters, abbey goblets of all shapes, wine style glasses, port glasses, and some speciality glasses for particular craft beers, etc. but my go to glass is a nonic pint glass. It's a beautiful style glass really and most of my favorite craft breweries approve as most examples on their websites are poured into a nonic. Check out FFF's site and see how many of their beers are shown in nonics. American porters, stouts, double stouts, RIS's, double IPAs, ipa's, apa's are all so called approved as well as brown ales, Scottish ales/wee heavy's, and so on. It's the glass I grab most for sure. But the list goes on

    I'm currently a big fan of the tiffany brandy snifter my girlfriend bought me for christmas

    though I hate taking it to school for fear of my doofy roommates breaking it so I usually stick to my Newport Storm glass or the dollar store tulip:

    Three Floyds Teku or Pint Glass, New Belgium Globe or Cigar City Snifter. Sometimes my Fantome tulip if I'm feeling saucy.

    My DFH signature glass definitely sees the most action in my house, followed by my no-name nonic pint.

    I find this to be a pretty interesting topic, and am always surprised by all the people that love the tulip glass. Just never been a fan of anything other than a pint glass myself, especially the British.

    I have the Libby Craft Beer set from the OP, but mainly only use the stemmed glasses from it. Got it from Target for $20.

    At home, my go-to is my Russian River tulip:


    When I go out to my weekly beer night with my friends, I usually bring a New Belgium Globe because it's a good glass that I won't shed any tears over if I break it:

    Most of the time I use a generic tulip my wife got for me. The only occasional exception at this point is I have the 'branded' glassware for my Trappist selections now. Loved the look of them. Great collection for the bar :slight_smile:

    In general, my go to glass is a standard shaker pint. But if I have a specialty glass for a specific beer, I'll use it.

    It really depends on what I am drinking. I mix it up between my East End Brewery snifter and my multitude of standard pint glasses.

    My every day glassware. I only bust out the branded glassware when the beer calls for it. No crying over spilled beer if one of these bite the dust.
  33. NickMunford

    NickMunford Savant (978) Oct 2, 2006 Wyoming

    I should really get a set of non-branded standards like that. Then I wouldn't have to worry about a glass that I only have one of getting broken.
