Looking for a glass beer set.
I saw a "Spiegelau" set at bed bath beyond. Anyone have this set. If not what do you have?

I received a great set as a gift and I believe it was from Target and the brand was Threshold. Pilsner, Imperial Pint, Short Belgian Tulip, Tapered Stange, Stout and Weizen glasses.

I've since supplemented with a Duvel tulip, an Ommegang Vienna goblet and the Chimay and Westmalle chalices.

Sounds like a great set Derek, and your additions are even better. Finding a nice set can be tough, as they are often just one of each: makes it tough to share the love with a friend. Try out a set, find which glasses you prefer, then get more of those. My vast collection of US "shaker" pint glasses (likely over a hundred from years in the restaurant and bar industry) has been relegated to drinking other beverages. I am really loving the Sam Adams 22oz glasses, and several tulip style glasses I have acquired over the years. I use these for almost everything now, not exactly correct for each style, but they make a nice presentation and I feel they do help every style ove the shaker pints. just my $0.02

At $20, I would definitely buy more than one of the Target set when I get my home bar together.

I am thinking of picking these up:

Does anyone know how thin these guys are? I am worried that I would break all 4 in less than a year...

I haven't seen those but I have a couple Spiegelau IPA glasses from Sierra Nevada that are very thin. I like them a lot, but be sure not to run them through the dishwasher and I'm sure you'll be fine. I hand wash all my glasses anyway, but I wouldn't trust them to not get dinged by something in the dishwasher.

I was given two sets of Mikasa variety pack a few years back.  They are really nice:

Best of luck with your pursuit.

I usually hand wash my glasses that have an emblem or design and just wash the others in the dishwasher. I try to be careful with the placement.

I got a free set of Speigelau glassware at 2013 NHC in Philly.  Love every one of the glasses.  Like Hoosier said though, only hand wash and be gentle with them.
