I like my 20 oz, 2011 Cambridge England Beer Fest pint glass but if it came to it, I would drink out of anything that did not have a hole in it.

I broke my favorite mug.  It was a large heavy U shaped clear glass mug with a big handle, and it held pretty close to 22 ounces.  Traveled with it unprotected and she shattered.  Darn it.  It was unique.  Had an etched message from my 4-year old son about "daddy" and everything.  :(

It's usually the standard shaker pint glass for me these days.  Sometimes better is the big 22-ounce weizen glass.  That is a very nice one.  I like the Sam Adams glasses as well, but they don't seem as sturdy as the good old shaker pints, and seem to only hold ~12 ounces plus foam.

I use 20-oz mugs (have six) for my half-liter bottled brews and the Sam Adams glasses (have two) for the 12-oz'ers.

Does anyone have a good source for a stange glass?  I have glasses appropriate for most all other styles, but nothing beats a good kolsch served in the proper glass.

This is where my wife and I got our tulip glasses and we were really happy with them, and prompt delivery as well. They were the best prices on tulips we could find, but I don't know about stanges.

Red solo cup, styrofoam, Mason jar, etc...

 I am kind of partial to the opaque ones. No worries about SRM, cloudiness and such.

I bought my stange glasses from here:

They are somewhat delicate, but you can't beat the price.

This is where I got my dozen for about $16 delivered. Only managed to break a couple so far... ;)

No questions asked I LOVE my Spiegelau beer glasses.  The one that does most of the heavy lifting in my house is the 0.4L Stemmed Pilsner which is more like a tulip.

My favorite was a half liter Hacker-Pschorr glass that I had "acquired" in Munich.

My sister in law broke it and I'm still upset about it...that was 10 years ago LOL!!

Most likely it was Willy Becher style of glass.
You can find them from time to time.

These ones. Got a bunch at Wal-Mart and they seem to work just fine.
I'm afraid to tell you that due to lack of space, I keep them in the freezer too.

While my favorite style of glass for most beers is a Becker-style Imperial Pint, I quite like drinking a big strong beer or a Belgian ale out of my vintage Westmalle glass (pictured with one of my first all-grain beers).
