Nowadays, Arc (France) and Pasabahce (Turkey) dominate the European market in the manufacture of beer glasses. Self verification now takes place in these factories, using sophisticated weighing machines. There are, however, a few small companies in the U.K. making mostly polycarbonate “glasses” the use of which is growing in the  21st century climate of health’n’safety.

We’ve come a long way from the days when each and every beer glass was tested and stamped by local authority Weights and Measures inspectors.

The Tulip design still lives...
