Blind Lady Alehouse Update - Glassware

There was much talk after the Blind Lady Alehouse opening concerning their beer pours and glassware. Apparently many people thought they were being short-changed because the glasses were being poured with lots of foam and room in the glass. But according to owner Lee Chase, this is the preferred method of pouring a beer at Blind Lady. They want the volume of beer you order to be served in a glass big enough to handle a good deal of foam, the way a beer should be poured. Up to this point they were using temporary glassware, and finally just received the special glassware they had ordered long ago. The new glasses are 21.5 oz glasses that can comfortably support pours of 16.9 oz's with a good deal of foam. Pretty cool I say.

And also:

And, of course, the Blind Lady's first house beer-- Automatic #1 will continue to be available until the batch runs out! This is the Organic Belgian single ale, with Ginger, Coriander, and Toasted Oak that I brewed at Mission Brewery last month. Complex and Refreshing.

They're giving away the old glasses now if you order a beer in them. The old ones are still pretty nice at this price!
