What glasses qualify?
Original Iris, orange Cantillon balloon, original KBS goblet, wavy hitachino, original OFR glass (although now that there's round 2, maybe this has changed?)....
those are the five that i've seen the most absurd offers for over the years/largest number of people trying to track down...
The HF Willi Becher style glass is apparently a GlassWale
wavy stem Fantome glass (not MS-paint bootleg version).
dontdrinkbeer his styro Fantome chalice is the whitest white wale glass tho
FWIW, Three Penny (and some other bars, I think) serves Edward in this glass. Is it really whale-ish? I've seen a lot of photos of it in people's collections too.
When I bought it, the people I was with, and the store owner (who is a serious VT homer) just about took out their harpoons and started singing sea shantys
still my favorite glass ever, srs, Tôme Farmstead, We Out Here
Our Finest Regards? Nice looking glass but I don't see why it is a whale. It doesn't seem to fit with the others.
I mean, there are (were) very few of them, and a lot of people want them. Again, this may be different now that round 2 of the glass was released, but there were a lotta people looking for them earlier this year. I am no authority on what's a whale and what isn't, I just saw a lot of demand!
A glass whale is: A piece of glassware that everyone wants, but no one seems to have or want to trade if they do.
A glass whale is not: A piece of glassware that a bunch of people have that no one has ever seen or heard of.
The whole wavy/ceramic Hitachino glass thing is pretty hilarious to me. No one wants those because they love Kiuchi beers and want to do properglassware, mang....though, they probably would once they have the glass in their possession. Then they'd be stuck drinking Hitachino a lot more frequently than they ever have. That's amusing to me.
But they do look cool.
Yeah, I'm just curious as to the level of demand. I mean, Fantome and Cantillon make rare beers that have a considerable cult following (and the glassware is also rare), and KBS is one of the most sought after American craft beers. But OFR? A pretty common beer without much of a cult following or legend behind it.
BT batch 001 willi becher.
Hasn't stopped the Hitachino wavy glass
I don't understand that one either.
i'd say any older cantillon glasses in general
Older RR like the -tion glass and barrel-aged glass.
You shall know soon enough
