Beer Glassware Catalog 1892

Here’s an interesting historical artifact. It’s a trade catalog for bars and restaurants from a company in New York, the L & M Goldsticker company, which published an “illustrated catalogue” of “bar room glassware and bottlers supplies” in 1892.

Here’s the cover of the 80-page catalog:

And the back cover shows the brick and mortar store on Fulton Street in New York City.

They carried a surprising array of beer glasses for the discerning bar, including some for specific types of beer, along with a number of other accessories and equipment. You can see the entire catalogue online at the Hagley Digital Archives. Below is a majority of the pages with beer glasses on them.

    Does this mean that some breweries have always produced proprietary glasses for their beer, a la Boston Beer Company’s invention of its special pint glass for Boston Lager?
