Glassware / Drinkware Question
« on: February 18, 2016, 05:17:05 PM »
Does anyone know where I can get affordable glassware?   All the glasses I have for drinking homebrew in have logos on them.  I dont like taking pictures of my homebrew with some brewery's logo on it?  i know about the Spiegelau glasses but those sets come in ounces too high for what Im looking for.

Here's what I'm looking for
Half Pint English Pub glasses   - Amazon has a 10 pack for 30 bucks (great price but I dont need that many)
IPA Glass - Does anyone make one that is 12 or 16 ounces?  (I bottle condition my homebrews so a 12 ounce glass is perfect size)
Stout Glass - 12 or 16 ounce
Pilsner / Lager - 12 or 16 ounce (all I can find are 20 ounces)

Thanks in advance for the help!

I get all my glassware at Goodwill. I recently got a dimpled half-liter mug and a bow tie glass for about $2 total.

That's a good call. My wife picked up some random goblet type glasses that I use constantly for like a buck a piece.

I already checked my local goodwill before posting on here. no luck

thanks Philbrew, most of the ones I found on amazon are bigger than 16 ounces.  I hadn't seen those 2.

Try TJMaxx if you have one by you.   My wife is kind of addicted to going there and I tend to browse the kitchen area while she shops.  They have some great deals on cookware and I was surprised at the glassware they had. The one by me had a bunch of spiegelau and libbey glassware for pretty cheap.

I just picked up the two pack of these for $10

Just start going to Beer Festivals and volunteering at competitions.   Your glassware collection will grow by leaps and bounds.  We have a rule at our house that if you come to drink....you can't leave unless you take a glass with you.

This thread inspired me to check mine earlier today. Within the short time I was there, an employee stocked about 10 newly arrived snifter type glasses.

Check out a local restaurant supply store. We have Ace Mart in Texas. You will have something similar in your locale.

I think SWMBO would love this rule, but to make it work, I would have to unpack the 8-10 boxes still sitting in the basement 4.5 years after I moved in. Might be fun to see some of those older, unused glasses though
