I have mostly normal pint glasses, but I prefer the nonic.  (I only have two)

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 just went to half-pint nonics from the half-litre Weihenstephaner glasses I had.

Anyone have a particular online store that they order glasses from?

Here's one that was previously mentioned.

Sur la Table

British imperial pint glasses

They were the cheapest I could find for nonic styles. (unless I bought a case elsewhere)

This is great! I'm going to order some of the half-pint nonic glasses.

Here, sign up and get another 6% off. Or not, I use this site for everything. It's just an affiliate site - you link thru them and they get a cut and in return give you a cut of their cut. Gets me back a couple hundred a year just from my online purchases.

disclosure: I would get maybe a percent or so too. It's a pyramid scheme - but nothing shady I can see. No scams, been using them for over a year with no incident.

I liked glasses from New Holland Brewing:
Not sure what kind it is but they have 16 and 20 oz.

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.

Remind me to not ask you over to my house for a pint.
And to stay away from my glass carboys, too. :-[

I have probably broken more glass carboys than any of you have owned either.  ;) Have me over anyway and red plastic "party cups" will suite me fine.  :)
