Do you have one? Mine is from my father in law. My wife is from the CZ (Czech Republic) and we go about 1 - 2 times a year to visit her family. On one trip, Mirek (her father), gave me a hand cut Czech crystal mug from his glass cabinet. It's quite beautiful, i'll try to post a pic sometime.

Only home brew, belgians or other quality beer finds it's way into this mug. Do you have a name for your mug? I don't...yet!

My MIL gave me a crystal mug with my initials engraved in it but it's so heavy and big I never use it. I have many pint and pilsner glasses in the brewery. My favorite one is the one in my hand that's full of homebrew!

I have a ton of pint glasses, but I prefer pils-glasses and steins

I swiped a mug from Old Queens Tavern in New Brunswick NJ my senior year at Rutgers. I love that mug, I have dropped it on concrete a number of times and it has never even chipped. Nothing like a mug made out of a good pound of solid glass.

I have several faves that seem to rotate. I collected many glasses during my stay in germany from all over. Europeans realise the benefits of drinking from a proper glass. I don't like to drink from a mug, must be a glass. I have about 50 ceramic stein/mugs from germany that I'm thinking of tossing on Ebay.

My favorite mug is by far the one I found in between the fire wall and the back seat of the 71 VW super bettle I bought. I bought it for $200 dollars; It was orange, had no floors, and barly ran. It took me 5 years to completly restore it. I soon sold it for 8G's because I was going to school in rochester. The mug itself has not one but two handles. On the front are the words left and right with arrows pointing the the correct handle. This apparently is key for the college drinker, just in case we forget, which does frequently happen. ;-) That mug is the only thing I have left from my baby blue bug.

Since were talking about swiping mugs...My favorite would be a couple of HUGE glass goblets that I well, picked up in Big D. These baby's are probably over a half inch thick. Man there great! Kinda heavy but they'll hold a hell of alot. Just to clarify myself, I'm not a thief. It was just time to leave the restaurant but I wasn't going to leave my beer. Know what I mean? Oh yeah, neither was my buddy Ryan. Honest...no really.

My favourite is a Hacker-Pschorr mug that left Oktoberfest with me. One of the security guys was going to take it from me, but he got distracted by someone leaving with about 3 or 4. So I just kept walking.

I don't use it much 'cause even though I bottle in 630mL bottles, a full bottle only fills up just over half.

Wow, Doug! Old Queens Tavern! I live on that block of Easton Ave! Can't say I've ever been inside though... its got a reputation as the ultra-corny college kid bar, though I've heard the stories of its past-life as street thug stomping grounds.

Oh. My favorites are my Weihenstephan Weissbier glass (picked up right there on the grounds of Weihenstephan) and my Aventinus Eisbock damenglas (picked up at the Schneider's offsite pub in Munchen). The one that get the most use these days is the $.99 snifter I picked up at the dollar store (still hanging onto barleywine season).

Whichever one is in my hand. Right now it is a Whiteface Black Diamond Stout glass that I picked up at the Great Adirondack Steak and Seafood Company in Lake Placid New York. I like to collect glasses from every Pub that I visit. Right now I'm drinking Denny's Rye IPA. I would probably use a shoe or my dog's water bowl if nothing was available though.

Chris,
201 Easton was my home for 2 years after I accidentally graduated college. Old Queens was the place that the senoirs and alumni went during my day. The Scarlet Pub was the home away from home for the Frat crowd and the Knight Club was pretty much the low budget place to go. My favorite was the Corner Tavern, relaxed with all those mugs hanging there to remind us that when we go to war not everyone comes home.

I have a Redhook glass from the old Fremont trolley (sp? sp? sp? sp?) barn that ended up in my (ex)girlfriends bag at the end of a memorable drinking session about 12 years ago. SHE is long gone, but the glass remains. Man, if that glass could talk....it would probably say, "why have you pis*d away so much time with me?"

:>)

Cool! Small world, Doug. I am posting from 218 Easton. I also accidentally graduated (what a mistake!) from Rutgers, but favor Harvest Moon, McCormicks or Ale 'n Wich. Too bad you're not around anymore for 7AM brewday house calls - "Hey Doug, you got a half pound of peated flaked chutney I can borrow?"

I've got a quart Golden Harvest "drinking jar," one of the quart jars with a handle on it; I find that is is perfect for stouts and dark beers. I like a trusty pint glass for the pales ales, no favorite one though. For lighter colored beers I really dig the 12oz pilsner glasses--I've got a set of the 23oz pilsners but I just don't care for them. My favorite of all is my trusy 20oz Pewter tankard that hangs on the wall at the Olde Hickory Tap Room--, that's a really cool mug. I'm either gonna take that thing with me one day (if you take it home you're not supposed to be able to bring'em back {I don't know. . .}) or spring for a similar nice drinking vessel. . .Since I don't get a chance to drink there much anymore (and since I'd rather drink my homebrew than pay $3.50 for somebody else's beer) I'll probably take it home when I get back there.

I have probably a couple dozen glasses & mugs left from my miltary tours in Germany (the ones I haven't broken over the years). I think I actually paid for 2 or 3 of them....
These are the names on the ones that are not packed up: Dab, Heineken, Kronenbourg,
Bitburger, Feldschlosschen, Bofferding, Schultheiss, Peterhof, and Kulhbacher Monchsof. Maybe someone knows some interesting history or factoids on some of the lesser known names/beers. Sadly, when I was "collecting" these glasses, I thought Miller was the cat's meow & I drank German beer only to look cool with my buddies....

Oh, my favorite drinking glass is one my kids gave me for Dad's day couple of years ago. It is the standard cylindrical mug with an oval pewter plate engraved "Dad's Brew." Best Father's Day gift ever!

It's a simple thing, but after receiving many glassware gifts from family and friends, I really prefer a basic tulip like this...

Glassware is one of my "things", much to my SO's chagrin.

I like to use a "proper" glass when I can:
straight sided Kolsch glass for Kolsch
22oz tulip glass for Scottish ales & Wee Heavies (mmm, 22oz of Wee Heavy!)
tulip or v-shaped pint glasses for stouts, pale ales, bitters, etc
tall weizen glass for weizens
pilsner glass for lagers
etc
And don't get me started on Belgian glasses ;-)

But I also have my favorites: pint glasses with my homebrew label acid-etched on the glass (a nice gift from sis), large heavy crystal mug brought back from Scotland, Guinness pint glass brought back from Ireland, my homebrew club glasses (Hogtown Brewers)... and a couple of old mugs shaped like heads my dad picked up in the navy with "made in occupied Japan" stamped on the bottom.

All that made me thirsty...

Slainte, George P.

Chris,
Never heard of Harvest Moon, but McCormicks was part of our regular biker bar tour. Of course this would been done as close to noon as possible to make sure that we don't get our @sses kicked by a bunch of bikes. I lived about 4 houses down from McCormicks on 23 James St..

You have to love a town with 33 drinking establishments within walking distance.

I have about 6 or 7 glasses that I drink beer from. My favorite one is the one that is easiest to reach in the cabinet.
