And here is the Snifter:


  • Andrew Selby

    Love the classic look of a snifter!

    • Brian M

      I’m torn with this one. I still feel kinda snobbish requesting special glassware.

      • Andrew Selby

        I think it’s all relative to the environment. You’d also be snobbish asking for a plastic fork in Africa.

  • Greg Kirkpatrick

    I miss the big dimple mugs you used to see. Great for ale and bitter. Less so, stout or lager.

    • Craft Beer Academy

      I definitely agree. Same reason I liked the shaker, the feeling of a nice solid glass is nice sometimes.
