Guinness Glasses?

Does anyone know where I can buy different pints of Guinness glasses in the GTA? I only had one and it broke recently. Any leads would be appreciated.

    There once was an Irish place in College Park that carried them, I'm sure, but I don't know where they moved to. The Irish Shop(pe?) at Bloor and Avenue carried glassware, but I don't recall Guiness glasses. You might phone them in advance.

    I feel your pain. Years ago Guinness, as part of a promotion, had Guinness juice glasses. Unfortunately, my set ended up with a roommate.

      callitasicit, i always felt a little bad about a "discussion" we got into last year that was eventually deleted by the moderators :). I was having a bad day :).

      So I spent a few minutes googling around on this for you. Unfortunately, it seems that unless the lcbo is offering them as part of a promotion, they are hard to find at retail outlets. Some sites suggest simply offering to buy them at a bar (or less recommended walking off with them). However, Guiness also has a webstore where you can buy them on-line (guinesswebstore.com). If you don't care about the logo, Ikea used to have pint glasses that were pretty darn close (same shape, same size, just no logo). I had a few but they broke over the last few years. Hope others have better advice.

        I have a bunch of 440 ml. Guinness glasses that came as a promotion with the beer (the cans of Guinness are 440ml.). The glasses at bars will be 500 ml.. I would get in touch with Guinness directly and they will probably give them to you.

          Thanks for all the suggestions, I think I will just call Guinness directly and try to score some.

            I have ordered a bunch of stuff including glasses through the Guinness web store and they were great, not overly pricey and a short delivery time with a tracking option, duties were a bit steep though.
            That being said, I believe you could find a set of glasses at a store in Mississauga in a small strip mall on the south side of Burnhamthorpe just East of Mavis. I can't recall the name but I'll see if I can find it and post it. Also, there is a Kiss Me I'm Irish shop in Brampton on the East side of Main St. just south of Vodden that may carry them as well.

        I have soem from a few years back that came with a promotion at Fionn Mccools.
        I say call Diageo to find out where these are sold at retail.
