A Beer Glass, for the Rest of Us

Alls I can say is, For $7.50 per glass, they better darned well make my beer taste better. I dunno... that small base sure looks tip-over-able to me. Olivia can spill things out of old, sealed paint cans. Something like this would seem to me an easy target.
Don't forget to check out the Finnish Folk Death Metal video! No, really!

I've lined them up as a Father's Day Present.
The glasses, that is, not the Finns.
I'll let you know.
Well, since different wine glasses can certainly affect the wine's taste, I would assume that it'd be much the same with beer as well.
Not that the wine that I drink is all that good, but the proper glass does help.
While I'll argue with anyone that Sammy's Boston Lager is the best beer brewed in these United States, a specially-designed beer glass is a tad overkill...sort of like people who buy really, really expensive sound-systems but whose audio-room is just the living room in their townhouse...oh, sorry... ;-)
Oh, I'm not questioning that the glass may enhance the beer's taste somewhat...but in reality, how much difference can it make?
The reviewer seemed impressed, but I'll wager he didn't have to pay for them. Still, it would make an interesting gift idea...
And honestly, they aren't even that much money if you're a true beer lover. $30 really isn't horrid for a set of glasses. Hell, nice wine glasses are easily up to $90 for two. Now, certain wines go for thousands, and nice wines are regularly in the $50 or more range, so maybe the investment seems like a better idea.
Hell, you and Mark could split the set and see what you get.
