Clear plastic tasting cups - cheap!
« on: January 02, 2013, 09:37:07 pm »
Just received a carton of these clear plastic tasting cups, for use at an upcoming beer tasting class.  They are 5 oz. Dixie brand cups, crystal clear, no odor, perfect for tasting and competition-sized pours, and they cost only $45 for 1,000 cups.  I can only say, I'll be buying these for my competition and beer classes for as long as they sell them.

Here's the actual cup with a sample (contents are Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale)...



Cheers!

That's great! Finding good cups drove me crazy last year and I still have 1000 cups sitting next to my desk that I bought for competition but couldn't use. They are beautifully crystal clear but have a horrible phenolic-plastic smell.

We use these at our comps, but the cost in Canada is $45/600 cups.

Thanks, we've used similar cups but they were more expensive in the past.  I've bookmarked it for our next BJCP judging class and competitions.

Thanks! I'm sure we will use these for our two upcoming competitions.

My club bought some of these for our monthly comp.  They've worked out well.  Thanks for posting.
