Beer Glassware Buying Guide

If you prefer to go to the bottle shop with a few mates, pick up some grog or plonk, and take it home with you, as opposed to hitting a boozer, maybe investing in a few glasses would be fun and helpful. Whether you prefer butchers, handles, middys, schooners, pints, pots, or jugs, however you enjoy a coldie is up to you.  Having a few glasses around, however, gives any beano a touch of elegance--whether or not grog is served from an esky ! So go pick up a few slabs, throw some music on the stereo , and break out the new glasses.  Whether it's just a few mates or a bonzer of a beanfest, glasses make any party a bit classier...and if you put them in the fridge, it makes for a lovely glass of amber fluid.
