    Hi Mates,

     I have started this thread for the all beer lovers. As a student I started beer glass collection, I use to borrow beer glasses from the hostelries and nearby stores. Today I counted them and it counts 400 mugs and 100 glasses, it was something that lots of people at college did. My collection is gathering dust in the garage now but the other day I was doing something in there and I saw some of them. It brought back some good memories and the funny thing is, I could virtually remember where every glass came from. I remember most of them I have bought from online stores. I am sharing some of old and new glasses from my collection. Two beer glasses I have bought last week from online stores. You can see my collection here:

    As an ex-publican I am not amused........
    Mary gave me a Stella pint glass to drink out of when I went to his pad, you know, the curvy gay looking one. I think it made him happy......

    Price you pay sometimes you feel as if you've bought the pub never mind the odd glass, Carlsberg lager in the local £2.30, pub ten minutes down the road we will be doing the quiz in tonight £3.70, now the landlord of the local is obviously making a profit on it, other place is making £1.40 more,,, we only go there for the quiz, then back to the local...

    Used to have quite a collection from my 'away days' with the football, 'we' used to acquire various different glasses from around the country.

    Had some great away days with the Spartans and we never failed to bring home at least 2/3 different branded glasses per away game how they made in back unbroken was a miracle but they always did survive.
    Even when the odd member of our day out failed to turn up for the agreed departure time after a few post match drinks and were therefore duly left behind to make their own way home the glasses always got back to Blyth.
    Needless to say being the responsible one I took care of them, still got a box tucked away in the lift somewhere... 
    memories of great days nowadays it takes all my will power to walk the 5 minutes from my house to the ground for a home game !!!

    I served quite a few years with B.A.O.R. in the 60s and started a beer glass collection then,
    In those days the exchange rate was 11 DM to the£ and a beer cost 45pg but if you "broke" a glass they charged 1-00DM so it was a fairly cheap way to collect glasses, my collection blossomed until I got posted and my glasses got smashed in my M.F.O. box, I think out of 60 glasses I saved 8 , still have a couple left

    Do to keep them where you do just so as you can raise them every now and again...
