At ~ $40 a pop, would you want one of these/or from your favourite brewery?

    For lovers of glassware and breweriana, there's nothing better than seeing stemware made by Zalto showcasing a logo of one of your favourite breweries.

    Recently, I got in touch with Zalto to get their confirmation on what breweries requested customized glasses directly from them. Apparently, only 3 breweries have done this.

    Mikkeller Baghaven, Bokke and de Garde Brewing. Models vary but what I found was this.

    I find these to be beautiful, specially the Baghaven and Bokke ones. I'd personally love if Tommie Sjef, Cantillon or even Hill Farmstead also made some. Do you share the same financially destructive appetite for fragile brewery glassware as I do? Check the poll created to assess that.

    Those glasses look WAY too fragile. Easy pass. (Also, I'm not into collecting glassware anymore.)

    No storage room is left, but it was a tough period to get thru. :slight_smile: I've recently been throwing away some pint glasses because they've become cloudy from the dishwasher, so more room is becoming available. :grimacing: But I think my purchasing habit of glassware is permanently broken. :grin:

    Very nice but at that price, I’d pass
