Looking to pick up a few awesome beer glasses for my brother and his fiancťís stock the bar party in two weeks. Him and I are advanced in the craft beer scene so already have quite a collection. However, could you all offer up some suggestions and recommendations of your favorite globe/snifters?

Cheers!

Stefan

Do you have Savers or Goodwill around you? Go there and pick up some brandy snifters. You can usually find them there and they usually go for about 50 cents each or are sold as a set for a few bucks. You can also usually find snifters with logos there.

If you want to get him a few gift sets, buy him a Duvel gift set with the tulip glass and a Unibroue gift set with glass. Both make some interesting beer glasses and interesting beers that donít necessarily need to be consumed immediately.

I recently received it as a promotional gimmick, but I freakiní love, love, love the new Newcastle Brown Ale nucleated pint glass with an elongated tulip shape. Itís big enough to pour a whole bottle with room for foam. The etched star shape in the bottom keeps the fizz going the whole time and the wide opening puts your nose right there in the aroma sweet spot.

Was going to suggest Savers/Goodwill, too. Iíve got some nice unbranded snifters/tulips/etc... there and some nice branded glasses (La Chouffe and Allagash tulips), too.

I like that shape of glass, too. One of my favorite and most commonly used glasses is a sort of similar shaped glass (though, quite a bit smaller) that I picked up at Goodwill/Savers.

I hate that I love this same glass: came with the shittiest chocolate "stout" Iíve ever had that comes in a bottle resembling a mortar round.

Create and Barrel has a nice selection of glassware. I found some great glasses there! My go to glass was a New Belgium globe one but I havenít used it since. Thatís my recommendation..

Founders CBS snifters are fabulous...availability is spotty from their we shop though.
