Title: Glassware
Post by: euge on September 24, 2010, 08:08:32 AM
I generally use the 20oz "nonic" style glasses. However, I have the "pokal" type as well. That's pretty much it except for a raggedy old Chimay goblet.

How about you guy's? What's your favorite style of glass for beer?

I mainly use regular old pint glasses, but I like to beer-geek it up for some styles. I just bought a case of stanges for my kolsch. I also like big brandy snifters for strong beers like barleywines and old ales. I have several goblet styles for Belgians as well. I have a few dimple mugs too which I like drinking English styles out of.

I have so much beer glassware that my wife is afraid to open the cabinet.  I like a tulip glass for Belgians, unless it's a Wit, then I use a chunky Hoegarden glass.  I like my Left Hand pilsner glass a lot.  Nothing like a Hefeweizen in its own glass.........

I've got regular shaker style pint glasses, tall pilsner glasses, and glass mugs.  I've also got a few goblets that are really big wine glasses but I use them for my belgians and barleywines.

I'd like to get some traditional pub glasses and some tulip glasses.  I've been looking at this site but they only sell by the case.  I need to get some friends to go in with me.

Ton's of glassware.  Mostly comprised of one off's, not too many "sets" or multiples of the same type.  I scour thrift stores and yard sales for interesting glassware and that is where a lot of my collection comes from.  I have found dimple steins, tulips, snifters, goblets, thistles and some glasses I have no idea what they are called but they suite some beers perfectly.

I also have a tendency to break glassware.  Especially my favorites.   :'(

I have a couple Orval goblets for Trappist and bigger Belgian styles, some tulips for wheats and other Belgians, but my favorite glasses are my half-litre glass steins and my conical pint glasses.  Nice thick walled glass, so my hand doesn't warm my beer.

When those are dirty, or I'm just having a 'regular' sized beer, I'll grab a shaker pint.

I too have most of a kitchen cabinet filled with beer glasses of which my wife is imminently thrilled about  ::)

I make a lot of lagers, so I tend to favor my Ayinger Willibecker glasses.  But the ones that get used the most are my Samuel Smith nonick half pints.

Mainly 20-oz handled mugs - fits a 500ml just right.  Also have a couple of the Sam Adams glasses from when they were giving them away a while back.  Oh, and I have a case of 5-oz "sample" glasses for tastings.

I have a ton of glassware as well, but I seem to have gravitated toward a 10 oz. snifter for just about everything. I can get a good 7 to 8 oz. in the glass and still have enough room for a nice head. Lets me sample multiple beers per session with out over doing it and also seems to be the right amount per pour for temperature and carbonation consistency for the drinking duration.

I did have a stupidly large beer glass collection a few years back - literally about 500 glasses. Of course, I'd lived in the same place for 12 years. :)

Then when the fiance and I moved in together, we went through the pare down of stuff phase... I lost all but 50 of the glasses and had good reasons for each, dangit!

fortunately, she just rolls her eyes and shakes her head at the silliness and I try to do the same for her.

Post by: The Professor on September 25, 2010, 03:12:31 AM
I have some pint and half-pint Nonics,  a few dimpled mugs, and some of straight sided small 8 to 10 ounce glasses...and that's all I need for any kind of beer (well, except for a big brandy snifter or oversized wine glass, either of which I like for my year aged  Old Ale/Burtons...kind of makes cracking one of those open an 'occasion'  ;D).

As an artist I can appreciate the fine design work on some of the gimmick glasses, and I also recognize (and occasionally applaud) the merchandising savvy they represent... but really don't need them to enjoy a beer.

I liked glasses from New Holland Brewing:
Not sure what kind it is but they have 16 and 20 oz.
http://store.newhollandbrew.com/store/product/nhbc-logo-20-oz-glass/75/
I had 16 oz once and I loved it.

I also have a stash of Czech beer glasses.
And because they are from thin glass they eventually break.

Like everybody, I have a massive collection of glassware that I don't have room for and 90% of which rarely gets used. For our wedding my wife and I had a few cases of Willibecher's made up with our brewery logo on them to give away as favors. Well needless to say, we still have probably 30 of them - so those get used a lot. Plus they're rad.  ;D

I would recommend checking out discount type stores from time to time.  I have gotten nonic glasses at TJ Maxx. before.  Of course they also usually have weizen vases (labeled as pilsner) and other more common glass types fairly cheap.

I think I can provide some heavy duty glasses rather than a red plastic cup.  I have some nice sampling glasses that I take to events that have withstood drops of a few feet.  Or a stack of clear plastic cups.  Anything but the red party cups.  Part of the pleasure of drinking a nice homebrew is visual.
I have broken two carboys in 20 years (no injuries).  I currently have about a dozen, but I'm not "most of you"

I've only ever had one carboy broken, one of my 12 gallon ones (empty). It was my wife who broke it, kind of a Rube Goldberg chain reaction with a moving garage door, a 2x4, a chair, a broom, and a carboy that would have been just fine if nothing had shoved it off of the top of the stack of brewing equipment.  No injuries.  I still have 11 glass ones that are 5+ gallons.

I've had more full carboys stolen (4) than many people own.   >:(

If you're ever over for a pint major, you'll get glass.  If you break it, we'll get the broom and a clean glass. :)
Title: Re: Glassware
Post by: euge on September 28, 2010, 05:50:54 AM
Heard that no-one's producing them anymore. I had a couple carboys. Remember thinking "sure hope I don't drop this..." And I would... eventually. :-\ That was a 6 gallon. Can't imagine how one would handle a 12 gallon.

I have tile floors. Enemy of plates, bowls and especially beer glasses. But a snap to sweep and mop.

I have broken at least 6 carboys. One full of 8 month old barley wine. Back in the day it wasn't such a big deal (except when they contained barley wine), now that they cost about 45 fricken dollars at the LHBS it is quite a big deal. Started using plastic milk crates but some of my carboys don't fit in them very well. I also use a Carboy Hauler.  I actually broke another one this summer. It slipped out of the Carboy Hauler. I now use buckets as often as possible.

I do have a very ncie collection of beir steins, several logoed belgian glasses, a couple of stemmed doppelbock glasses, several stangs, several weizen glasses, etc. The thing I am really hard on is pint glasses. I am down to one Imperial Pint glass and one 1/2 Impy. Last year I had several. I do have my "Favorite" Pint glass (which is just a logoed tumbler my sister got me at a brew pub out in Oregon a few years ago). I just noticed the other day there is a chip in it. I had one that looked just like it, but I broke it.

I'm pretty hard on my glassware as well although I haven't broken any in awhile (probably shouldn't have wrote that).  That's why I want to buy a case of pint glasses. That way I can just replace them from the stock when one goes down.

Sure, I got them from Grandstand  (http://www.egrandstand.com/)which is a pretty big manufacture and makes glassware for a lot of pro breweries. They were great to work with and the quality it top notch - the only problem is that the prices are based on bulk ordering and they have minimum order quantities - ie, you can't just order like 4 glasses. It was fine for us since they were for our wedding, but most folks don't want 50+ of the same glass. ::)

Speaking of which, I've broken a handful of my favorite glassware. Not as many as some of you, but it seems like every time I do it's one of my all time favorite ones. :o

Only about $2.50 a glass including shipping.  But you gotta buy 36 of them.  It would take awhile to break that many anyway.  :)

I've had luck with local restaurant supply places - once you have the Libbey part #, they can easily get you a case.  It might be the cheaper way to go, and they'll probably want you to pay in advance.  But when I was getting glassware for club tastings, I found that to be cheaper than buying online and shipping them.  YMMV

 The movers broke my very favorite pint glass. it was from Lauginatis. Being out here in the mancave, it really kind of sucks humping dirty / clean glassware to / from the house all the time. Plus, my glasses always seem to make their way into the dishwasher somehow. And, quite often in the cabinets in the house. I'm thinking I will be starting to rely heavily on the big red plastic cups. Especially on poker night.

I also have a ton of glassware. I have a lot of shaker pint glasses - but I use those for water, OJ, or tea. I have GABF taster glasses going back to 1995. I have every Anchor Christmas Ale glass going back to 1990 or so. I have a display cabinet in the dining room with the really nice glasses (mostly with gold or silver etching). I have about 20 steins (some litre, some .5 liter) mounted around the bar in the basement and a rack system on the back wall with about 20 different stemmed tulip-type glassware. I have about 100 3-oz tulip-type stemmed tasting glasses (all collected from Big Beers in Vail over the years) that I use for tastings. My go to glass is usually the ones I had made for my wedding a few years back - 10oz tulip stemmed glasses with my brewery logo etched on the front and our wedding date of the back. I have 3 of those left.

I am done with my confession now.

I like to collect imprinted pint glasses, but don't have tons of room for glasses, so the beer glasses are my every-day-multi-beverages kitchen cupboard glasses.  I have a good dishasher that leaves them clean enough to drink beer regardless of what they held before being washed.

Don't get me wrong, I do have another whole cabinet/bookshelf full of glasses: weizen, Belgian goblets, more pint glasses, wine glasses (red and white), large cocktail glasses, collins glasses, whiskey glasses, tequila glasses, flutes, and wine decanter.  In the closet stored in their boxes are four cases of 5-ounce beer tasting glasses for flights.  The ones that get the least use are the collins glasses.

In the UK they have to accurate enough to meet the law for weights and measures. 20 Imperial ounces.

In Germany they have to meet the law too, but will be .3 liter, 0.5 liter, 1 liter.

We need to do that here. I've been given a short pour plenty of times by dimwitted bartenders who think foam somehow equates to liquid.

And we need to embrace the metric system instead of the current standard. So much easier.

My collection of glassware became much smaller two weeks ago.  I was moving a table from my shop to the craft/game/beer room and caught the leg of the table all my glasses were on.  The lurch was just right to knock about half of my glassware off the table and on to the concrete floor.  It was a major mess but made picking what glass to use much easier.   ::)

I think it would be cool to get my own glassware too, but then you have disclaimers like this:
"Glassware capacities are approximate and should not be used as a standard of measure. "

Where can you get glasses that have a fill line on them?  I like those.  :)

those are the British pint glasses usually. pubglasses.com has them.

Those fill lines are probably approximate too.

In the UK they have to accurate enough to meet the law for weights and measures. 20 Imperial ounces.

In Germany they have to meet the law too, but will be .3 liter, 0.5 liter, 1 liter.

Never have checked the ones I have.
I meant ones produced here, not in Europe. If the designer/printer aren't paying attention - that line could be anywhere.
 
It makes me laugh anyway, seems that beer drinkers are militant about getting a good pour with decent head - until they are paying for that pint. Then it's fill it to the top!!

I have to ask, are there glasses made with fill lines in the USA?

There are for festivals. And some bars trying to be hip use them. Glasses are heavy and expensive to ship, so I assume at least some are made here.  I'm sure they're not calibrated either - probably some guy pours some water in a glass and says - stick it here --->

I need to look at the festival glasses I have. Might measure some of the various ones I have. Can hear the wife - "What are you up to now?".

Get some glass-etching solution while you're at it....

Last month I decided to clean and sort out my glass cabinet.  I ended up donating a lot of them, mostly the pint-sized straight-sided glasses, to my club for a raffle.  Here's what it looked like before organizing.

Having trouble with photobucket.  Stand by.

I use a standard pint glass or drink it straight from the bottle.

I think I have found the ultimate homebrewer's glass: 1 quart. Chill can in freezer and pour entire 25.36oz in!

This approach will not be suggested to my friend who has an unnatural love of my 24oz glasses. ;)
