Title: Amber Beer Glasses
Post by: gmac on May 28, 2013, 02:50:04 AM
Maybe the Pub isn't the place for this because it is actually beer and homebrew related but does anyone know if they make amber beer glasses?  Now that summer has sort of started here in Ontario (and I say "Sort of" because there was a good amount of frost this morning), I will be spending a lot more time outside.  I do have some plastic glasses but I'd live to find amber coloured glass glasses.  I just like drinking my homebrew out of actual glass but I don't appreciate the skunkiness that I get after 30 seconds in direct sunlight. 
Anyone have a good suggestion for skunk proof glassware?
Thanks

Stainless Steel mug?
Something like coffee mug?
Ceramic mug / stain?

Something like these? (http://www.amazon.com/Klean-Kanteen-Stainless-Steel-16-Ounce/dp/B006JWWWX6) I guess the only problem would be heat transfer, but then again maybe not in the great white north.

Shoot I would just go cheap and wrap a handkerchief or something around my glass! or paper, or just wrap that sucker in duct tape lol. That actualy might look cool too

What about cutting the top off a cool silk screened bomber, then fire polishing the edges. Like this

Thanks guys.  I find it funny that nobody seems to have tried this.  I like using a glass and I like certain shapes for certain beers so I thought that someone would have made amber glass ones.  I have some double walled plastic ones from Wal-Mart that cost about a buck that would work fine, I just thought that someone would have made beer bottle coloured glasses.
The steel ones would be neat but yes, heat transfer would be a problem.  It will eventually get hot here.
We have a few "regulars" here for beer so the steel ones would be good and I can get their names put on them so I don't keep getting them mixed up.

Like the Duct tape idea.
