    Spiegelau has a line of beer-specific glasses:

    Another hobby of mine. I have a great deal of glassware, much like the knives. I have gone through a number of sets, but my core white/red wine glasses now are Zwiesel fortes: they are thicker than the Riedel's, but they are more durable and I like the contours, and the Forte line is by no means cheap. I also have some of the their Enoteca line for the truly huge Burgundy and Bordeaux glasses. My other glasses are mixed Spiegelau and Ravenscroft mostly. I have about 9 different kinds of cordial/apertif/schnapps glasses, lol.
    I also have a collection of beer pints and beer goblets, coolers, and a good number of different cocktail glasses. Good enough for a bar.
    This thread leads me to my next point here...I need a European member to send me a yard glass.

    Never having tried the Glencairn I'm unsure how the Reidel single malt compares, but I bought a bunch on sale and am happy with them.

    Not to throw cold water on the wine glass discussion, but as a member of a pretty high-end and knowledgeable wine group (they invited us to join because of my wife, no doubt) we've never noticed a difference in how wine tastes regardless of the glass. Any decent wine glass is fine. Buy on looks, durability and practical function. If you have a hankering for a special glass, go for it.

    Edited to add: Perhaps my favorite single malt glasses are from Hudson Beach Glass in Philadelphia. A gift from my daughter who designed their window. They no longer make them but they're a set of whiskey glasses on ridged glass tiles:
