Hi Matt - Glad that you mentioned glassware in your profile of expertise.
Here is a photo of my favorite glass for beer drinking - the last piece remaining after the others succumbed to gravity-based accidents one by one over the years.
I want to buy replacements, but no amount of internet image-searching has turned up this shape.
Can you tell me  at least what this shape is called, so I can search it textually? Better yet, can you identify the source?
Thanks for your attention.

Hi Barry,

Sorry about my tardy reply, but I've been extremely busy with my launch of Beer AID®.

Now, I'm sure I've seen glasses like this before, but honestly can't remember exactly where. I have a personal collection of easily 500+ glasses and certainly don't have one of these.

But I'm not sure why, exactly, you'd love this glass style so much. While, to its credit, its got a  desirable wide mouth and big bowl, its "stem" necessitates holding at all times. With the volume of beer in the glass directly in contact with your hand, it's almost inviting warm beer. It's a big reason I always suggest glassware with simple glass stems.

That said, there is a very close approximation on the market now, and its distribution is wide enough, such that you can find it either locally, or online.

I hope this helps some. Good luck in your search!

Expertise

I can answer all questions about beer, the brewing process, ingredients, history, styles, glassware & serving temperatures, beer & food pairing, cellaring, the craft beer industry and much more. The only area in which I'm wholly unfamiliar (but still able to find out through direct, personal inquiry) is the purchasing of large-brewery equipment.

Experience

I've been involved with craft beer, in one regard or another, for almost 2 decades. I've taught craft beer courses at Emory University, I'm a BJCP Certified Judge, an Administrator for RateBeer.com (arguably, the largest beer website/database in the world, with over 100,000 members) and have been interviewed by ABC News, CNN, NPR, the Washington Post, FOX Business’s Cavuto Show, TheStreet.com, the Associated Press, the Houston Chronicle and many others. I'm an award-winning homebrewer, with multiple ribbons won (including the AHA’s National Homebrew Competition), and owner of one of the largest, most robust and comprehensive beer cellars in the world. I write the “Ask Beer” column for Beer magazine, “Beer Talk...From the Wings,” for Hooters Magazine, the quarterly beer column for In The Mix magazine, a beverage-oriented publication that reaches such hospitality industry establishments as The Four Seasons and Four Points Sheraton, and “Ask the Beer Sommelier,” for Atlanta’s Finest Dining magazine as well. I've been hosting craft beer tastings since the 90’s, and am truly privileged to call some of the most accomplished brewers and beer aficionados in the world, friends.
