Following on the glasses theme, I recently ordered a Hobgoblet (http://www.wychwood-shop.co.uk/products.asp?recnumber=1098) as advertised for £5.99 on the back of bottles of Wychwood Hobgoblin. I had been expecting a stemmed pint glass, but in fact it turned out be an oversize, lined half-pint glass (in fact described on their website as a 470ml glass) very similar in size and shape to a Belgian Rochefort glass I have. Iím not a fan of stemmed pints, so one of those would probably have lingered in the back of the cupboard, but, as it is, itís an attractive glass that will no doubt get used for 330ml bottles of Belgian beers, Punk IPA, Old Tom etc. (The link, incidentally, doesnít work at present as the product is out of stock)
