I am creating this thread to help get information out there for the de Garde glassware that has been released. This is one of my collecting focuses and I couldn't find a solid source of information so I figured I would create it.

Feel free to let me know if my information is wrong and I can update it when necessary.

Not all of these pictures are mine (as I don't have all of these glasses.)

Just have to find a niche.
Exactly. I ended up focusing on 3 areas: de Garde, Huna Day and Pegs/Cycle. Plenty of glasses I still need that will be a challenge. *even though I still get caught up in the new stuff that is outside these areas.

Like Duvel glasses? Fantome chopes?
I got my niche. Its enough to keep me in the game a little bit. But all the #newglass be making me dizzy.
Trust me, #oldglass makes me dizzy too, but once I started focusing on my collections (mostly Duvel and Trappist stuff) and stopped chasing the flavor of the month, the hobby became more enjoyable again. I have been getting rid of a bunch of glasses I don't like/use, but still have 400+ in the collection. Being in the BIF has helped me not buy for the past couple of months. Once the BIF is over, I am going to seriously sit down and decide what I want and what I don't want anymore, possibly including the Fantome chope (regularjohn just seeing if you are paying attention). One of my most prized glasses left my collection last week, but it is going to someone who will appreciate it more than me. The best part of the glassware game is the community we have established. There are some really generous people in this hobby, and we tend to take care of each other without trying to "win" any trades like you sometimes see in the general craft beer scene.

Agreed. Glassgeeks so much easier to deal with.
I want to pair down my stash but what a chore making a list and getting pics. Ug.

been working on this myself too for the past few weeks here and there when I have some time.

my new focus is mini sniffers and a few breweries and then no more than a single glass from breweries that I acutely drink beer from.

the inventory in is a nightmare but makes for easier cut decisions. I am definitely gonna have a few glasswhales up for trade pretty soon

don't tease me like that! ;)
i agree 100% here, i've taken a long break from chasing new glassware because it gets pretty exhausting. i think its more fun to scoop up vintage ones that aren't even particularly rare just ones i like.
