I randomly looked in my cupboard yesterday, and realised how many glasses ive robbed from my local pub.

Im just wondering wether the pubs get branded glasses i.e Strongbow, Guinness for free?

Of course i didnt actually rob the glasses on purpose, its from times where ive walked home pissed with a half empty pint in my hand.

I would imagine they don't get branded glasses for free.

But fret not, pint glasses are the pub equivalent of bath towels in hotel rooms. It's pretty much mandatory to nick an embossed one

some big pubs n clubs get endorsements. but most small local pubs just buy them. often its cheaper for them to buy a load of say strongbow pint glasses in bulk. plus cos your advertising their drink by using their glasses they often do discounts n stuff on buying them

brands will probs give them free branded glasses for selling their beer


Yup. They'll probably get a ton of them from the brewery too.

I don't think they get them for free but they're fine to nick...In my cupboard there's thousands of pint glasses that my dad stole from a pub that he worked at. He also stole 2 Jack Daniels glasses from the Vauxhall Tavern...One broke though last year.

pffft, my mate and his RAF platoon stole a snooker table from a pub, and the sign from above the door of the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas.

they probably do get them free from the beer company because it's like advertising. If you look at someone's drink and think 'that looks good' you can tell what it is...

Slightly off the pub topic, ive nicked a big metal sign leading into a housing area, and ive contemplated nickin the 'play area' at the local lake. Just keep on forgetting a spanner whenever i go there haha.

Theres something about nickin signs that makes me laugh.

I still havent grown up, lol.

I got 2 free Stella Artois glasses when they were having a sale on Stella at the liquor store by my house.

I also sent an email to the Steam Whistle (microbrewery in toronto) office asking for some information and they gave me the information and are sending me a free bottle opener.

You think theyl send one all the way to uk haha?

Pffft! We stole 2 big bottles of Afteshocks (un opened) and refilled our pints when the barman had left to get us more vodka (we had finished one of those big 2 litre bottles between about 6 of us!).

When it comes to glasses tho, the police always seem to catch me with a half finished drink... so i end up having to down a double shot of vodka (or sometimes a whole guinnes!) and givin them my glasses.. just not good...

Probably not, because you can't get Steam Whistle in the UK so sending you free stuff wouldn't potentially benefit their business in any way.

You might be able to try the same thing with a different company though.

Yeah we've got a whole cupboard full of glasses nicked from the pub, whether they be pint or shot glasses. I think it's a tradition to have at least a few mementos from your nights out.
there is no fear in this heart.

Pubs don't get the branded glasses for free, they still have to purchase them the same way they do wtih other glasses and other promotional material

I have beer glasses from pubs, mini soap bars from hotels, and golf balls from behind the gold course.

I've never played golf in my life.
#27
I've never known how you do this. My favourite club has plastic cups for your drinks, apparently we metalheads are dangerous in large groups

And, in regular pubs, unless you're really sneaky, you can't just walk out, they stop you!

I have an ex-boyfriend who was really into stealing things from pubs though, he had a few different pint glasses he'd put up his sleeve and left with, plus a wooden rooster from nando's and a tiny espresso mug from starbucks. Not that impressive compared to a pool table!

I have a sack of golf balls from a dumpster that was near my old house for about a week. I was compelled to claim them.

I also have a book of carpet samples that was left in my house after a party; I have no idea who brought it, why they had it or why they saw fit to leave them there, but it's my new favourite thing that has ever happened.

Haha its really not hard to rob a pint glass. Robbing a wooden rooster from nandos is just genius though.

You have a point, it's a bit brass to just nick glasses from the pub. By accident maybe but delibrately is pointless. You could buy pint glasses in bulk for peanuts.

Then do what we do at our metal club, and buy a pitcher of something each... if you're gonna drink out of plastic, do it in style And with plenty of jager, cos it IS a metal club.
