    i need some recommendations for these, i know most breweries sell glassware online but they're usually just full size snifters/pints etc but if someone can share some pictures of ones they have, or where i can find some thats fine too....any brewery is ok but i prefer some that aren't really difficult to get whether its gonna be trade wise or possible pickitupformebro? thanks !

    The Troegs mini snifter is pretty easy to come by for anyone who lives close to the brewery (I have two of them as well):


    This Firestone Walker 6 oz snifter is available on their website:

    The 6 oz Night Shift Brewing snifter is available online as well:

    Left Hand sells their 5 oz tasting snifters for cheap (dunno how much shipping is though):

    Kane Brewing has a sweet mini snifter, but they don't sell them online. They used to be available at the brewery; maybe somebody nearby can check for you?

    There are definitely more out there, these are just some that shouldn't be too hard to come by. Good luck!

    I use my Night Shift mini all the time, great as a taster or for whiskey and it feels stronger than a some of the others I've used

    But at $5 a pop, they are a bit pricey IMHO.

    I picked up all three of the glasses for someone. I just don't remember who :(

    Might call them to make sure they have glasses to sell. I've been twice when they wouldn't sell any of the taster glasses. If you need me to pick them up just let me know. I can run by some afternoon pretty easy.

    This is why EVERYONE on this board who does the CS trustee thing talks so highly of this gentleman. Class act.

    They don't sell these anymore but there's new regular snifter glass with the updated logo. I'm not sure if there's tasters for sale again or not.

    I like this Deschutes one, you should be able to get it online:

    Also, while it's fun to collect the branded ones, if you just want to have a bunch of glasses for tastings, the Libbey 5.5oz brandy glass is perfect. It's only like $20 for a case: http://www.webstaurantstore.com/lib...ogleShopping&gclid=CK3_nJC__rsCFeJF7AodgVEAqw
