    Can we all at least agree that regardless of container, it tastes best poured in a glass?

    Yes. But the next question is "What kind of glass?"
    I recommend CLEAN ones.

    Yep, clean is important. One local bar here does not clean their glasses well and you can always smell the soap/dishwater while you're drinking the beer.

    I really just prefer standard pint glasses, but would like to get some of the specialty ones designed for specific styles. Unfortunately I have no more room in my cabinets so that will have to wait.

    same problem here. I have found that the Sam Adams specialty glasses work well as a good multipurpose glass. It's a little gimmicky, but the laser etching, IMO, really does work.

    I prefer Fat tire in the growler. So I guess that's another vote for glass.

    Etchings in the bottom of the glass FTW.

    Besides the Sam Adams glasses, I had seen a friend who had a budweiser one which had the Bud Eagle etched into the bottom of the glass. It was freaking sweet. I think he picked it up at the brewery in st louis.

    I had a Miller lite Glass (just broke it last week :() that the etching was the Miller Lite logo. made the beer have that "crispness". I have a couple more bud light glasses that have etchings in a "swastika" shape thats really cool

    I have a Joe's cup from a $1 Joe's cup night back in college that has a melted spot in the bottom that creates bubbles. So I guess you could say I have a cup with etching in it.

    A few months ago during a trip to England, we hit a Belgian cafe one night (The Belgian Cafe, ironically, in Eastbourne) and ended up drinking Kwak in the tradtitional Kwak glass/stand. It was a great brew, and I am searching for it in Tulsa. McNellie's has it, but not sure if they serve in the Kwak glass (I suspect not).

    If you can find it, you may become a convert. I love Paulaner but I don't think it matches the smaller, rural Ayinger. Best Oktoberfest on the planet. The Jarhundert is about as good as a bright lager as you can find in my opinion.

    I'll have to give Fat Tire a shot in the can (what?!) I noticed long ago the biscuit/chocolate notes were absent from the last times I had it in the bottle a few years ago. Between those two characteristics and the perfect ballance, it made it one of my all time favorites. I will always wonder if my clone recipe nailed it or not. Only the garage floor, driveway and the street know know now.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't met an Oktoberfest that I haven't liked, so I'm sure Ayinger will not disappoint. Will be on the lookout.

    There is only a few places you can find it. Byrons buys most of it up so many places can't get it.
