One of my hobbies is collecting branded beer glasses. Mainly because of what you put in them. After posting a photo of my two IKEA cabinets full of glasses, my cousin suggested I should post my ten favourite. So here we go with part one.
Probably one of my favourites is the coachman glass from Kwak. I remember seeing photos of this online when I started out on the craft beer adventure and it wasn’t until I was away with friends in Biarritz a couple of years ago that I got to order a beer in one. It nearly never happened though as when my friend ordered the Kwak for me the barman came out a few minutes later to say the keg was empty. I was a little disappointed and ordered a Duvel instead but then he appeared with a Kwak saying he was able to pour a half glass for me and it was on the house . I finally got one when my good friend Sarah gave it as a Christmas present.
Next we have Maredsous which is a ceramic glass. Quite a few Belgian beers have ceramic glasses but I couldn’t buy them all when I bought this one in Leuven. Believe me I wanted to but there is only so much checked luggage I could carry back from Belgium. Below Maredsous we have Kasteel. I love the castle at the bottom of the glass. The beer is disappointing and much like Kwak & Maredsous, they would not be my favourite Belgian beers.
Finally, we have Rogue. I love the american pint glasses. They can be quite hard to find over here and this was a present from a friend. At last we have a decent beer too. Their Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout would be a favourite of mine.
If you have any unusual glasses that need a good home I will gladly take care of them
