These are all gorgeous, but this was my favorite so I maaaaaayyy have made a not so subtle suggestion.
I keep collecting different pint glasses from breweries and different ones that catch my eye and this one is probably going into regular rotation. What are some of your favorite glasses to enjoy a pint in?
I got this glass at Stone Brewery Liberty Station in San Diego on a work trip with my Dad about 7-8 years ago. I was foolish and tried to crutch down the stairs to get just one more pint when I had my ACL surgery and it slipped and shattered all over the floor.
I’ve been stalking it ever since as they stopped selling it at the brewery (I checked the last three times I was there to be sure). Finally found it on ebay this week so I’m enjoying my first pint in it to test it out.
I worked for a German power tool company for 8 years before my current job and had the opportunity to go for training in Stuttgart Germany. At the time circa 2005 weizens were my favorite style of beer and still hold a special place in my heart. I got to go to the Paulaner brewery for lunch and a tour and we loved it so much we went back after dinner the one night and had many weizens. Thankfully it was a nice walkable distance from our hotel. I bought one of these glasses on the way out to bring home with me. I wrapped it up super carefully in my luggage but sadly, it didn’t survive the journey home.
One of our German colleagues who was out drinking with us every night while we were in for training came to a trade show with us the following year and had this wrapped up with a bow in a box for me because he had heard mine broke on the way home. Makes me smile every time I pour a weizen.
