Glassware: Bryan's Collection

While it is not by far the most impressive glassware collection, it's a start, eh? I only recently got started collecting beer glassware other than the usual pint glasses. Here's the brief rundown of how they came into my possession. The Duvel came compliments of an Ommegang tasting. The St. Feuillien was a parting gift from a Monk's beer dinner. The Stone was a thank-you gift. The Chimay and St. Bernardus came in beer/glassware gift packs. And, the Moinette was a nice giveaway. As we all know, the shape of glassware can sometimes have a dramatic impact on how a beer's aroma presents itself. So, my collectibles have grown first from coasters and matchbooks, then beer labels, to growlers, and finally now glassware. I'm looking forward to growing this area of my collection!

Congrats, that's a nice start and already well above my own small collection.

I do have the exact same Duvel glass that came in a gift pack. Besides a few assorted mugs, I only have a single american style pint glass, and a regular weizen from a local store. I really would love all the Stone glasses.

It's a slippery slope. I've been attracting glassware for many years now. Unfortunately, I don't have enough room to display all the glasses now and have three tubs of wrapped glassware in the basement. Some day when I open a pub...

Bryan, if you want to get rid of any of those, I would be happy to give them a home ;-)
